This is not a gig for a week with no parenting back up. It's 7:30pm. Kids are tucked in. The table is covered in Play-doh.
Two days ago I made some homemade marinara sauce - I used the Don't Panic recipe.
Google says you can freeze quiche guts. So I bought a pre-made crust, and am going to toss this recipe from Epicurious into a freezer bag to be served with a green salad. Again: dun and dun. But, dude. Check it:
The sloppy joes are always a big hit around here. From Rachel Ray's 30-minute Meals 2. Some people hate on the Rachel Ray. I like her. Well, yeah. She is kind of annoying. But I like the recipes. And they really do only take 30 minutes. I usually sub in turkey for beef, as Husband doesn't eat the cow. But I'm getting wacky and using buffalo for this batch. To be served with some acorn squash. I was going to do a fancy-schmancy PW recipe for the squash. But upon reflection, I think it's better to just give them the squash with instructions to hack it open and bake it with butter and brown sugar.
So this week, in summary:
Poor Man's Chicken Cacciatore with roasted red peppers and cauliflower (theoretically, as it's not made and I don't know when I'm going to make it. Also, I forgot to buy capers. But it looks good!)
Broccoli and Garlic Quiche and salad
Manicotti and salad
Sloppy Joes and acorn squash
Wild Rice Soup and roasted carrots (again, theoretical. But I do have the carrots and it's mostly about writing out instructions. Which I can probably handle. Maybe.)
Good frickin' night, y'all. Mwah.
