I'm just happy to have him on board because it is so hard to stick to a healthy eating plan when you're eating by yourself as the rest of your family eats the forbidden foods!
|We changed things just slightly because I always make a ton of pasta sauce at once. I don't want to take the time to always cook things separately. So we used the sauce from yesterday. We also used ground turkey instead of lean ground beef. I always make as many meatballs at one time as I can too. They freeze well and are great for grabbing for a quick meal addition that makes it seem like you took more time than you did!|
I'd make that Sunday/Big Baking Day include making and freezing meatballs, making sauce, roasted garlic and maybe even the basil cream part. In the end, it really wasn't all that time consuming, just more steps than I want to do in one day. It helped that I HAD made the pasta sauce and roasted garlic yesterday.
I really need to make sure that I always check ALL of the weeks recipes and do as much before prep that I can on the weekend with Patrick and the kids to make the week day meals easier. I am LOVING having new things to try, so I really want to keep up with trying at least 5 new recipes a week.
Its not a big deal this week because we're still on Winter break, but soon we'll be back to full out homeschool co-op classes, basketball practices for Kainan, Swim Team for The Bean, Dance for Paris and The Bean and Safari Joe for Jaedin.
