Nov 9, 2009
It's the middle of November, meaning it's time to start pre-planning the Holiday Shuffle! I love that both our families live closeby, but coordinating to make sure BOTH sets of grandparents see the kids can be rough. Anyone got a spare cloning machine?
Last week we did great with the menu plan until Friday, we got home late so I just made spaghetti. Then we ended up out of the house for the whole weekend so I didn't have to cook! The end of week meals will carry over into this week so I can use the ingredients while they're good. I'm still working out the juggling of mealtime cooking with a toddler AND an infant in the house, but we're making progress :)
This week we only have ONE day when the whole family is home for dinner, otherwise one of us working-types is...well, working. I definitely need to squeeze in a baking day somewhere too - my toddler wants to know why the bananas look funny :)
Here's our table for the week, don't forget to visit Laura at I'm an Organizing Junkie for hundreds more menus and recipes!
