Well, we are home from the hospital and doing fine. (I’ll be blogging about the baby in tomorrow’s post.) Life has gotten crazier since we have added our new addition to the family, so this week is all about trying to prepare health(ier) meals in a short amount of time.
Since I am recovering from a c-section, I am not able to help around the house much besides taking care of the baby. Luckily my mom is here for another 5 days, and between her help and my husband’s, the kids are being well cared for and the house is remaining relatively clean. Meal preparation is the big chore, so you will notice many convenience items that I don’t normally use, but if it keeps us eating at home and not ordering take out all the time, it is well worth it.
Monday–Mushroom Pepper Steak
Tuesday–Chicken and Rice Burritos
Wednesday–Broccoli Chicken Alfredo
Thursday–Chicken Pita Pockets
Friday–Rotisserie Chicken, mashed potatoes & spinach
Saturday–Beefy Shells & Cheese
We are buying two rotisserie chickens this week and using them for most of our chicken recipes.
Luches will be leftovers or sandwiches.
Breakfasts will be omelettes, oatmeal, breakfast burritos or toast.
