What's Cookin' This Week - 10/18 - 10/24

Today I head home and we should arrive just about dinner time tonight.  Deanna will be heading home too, getting there around the same time we do, and that should be interesting because we'll all be hungry and no one in the mood to leap into the kitchen and cook.  So, probably I'm picking something up on the way but I'm not sure what yet - has to be cheap and my next act after feeding everyone will be to quick like a bunny shoot out utility payments..woo hoo!  This getting back to my regularly scheduled life isn't sounding so fun yet, is it?

So here is what my post vacation brain thinks we're having for dinner this week:

Mon - 18th (Meatless?? Maybe...)
Take out something or another

(UPDATE:  Subway sandwiches, so no Meatless Monday this week.  Not sure if I'll make that up later this week or not. But we're home now!)

Tue - 19th (Trying a New Recipe)
Spaghetti with Meat sauce, Garlic Bread,  Salad

Early in the day, I'll be making up a batch of "5 Minute Artisan Bread" - first time trying that method so here's hoping it works, because that's going to wind up being the garlic bread for dinner.  I really, really want it to work.

After dinner I'll be soaking some steel cut oats to try that baked oatmeal again - Michael and I want to compare flavor/texture between steel cut and rolled oats.

Wed - 20th (Fend for Yourself)
Breakfast: Baked Oatmeal

Dinner: Fend for Your Self (if there are leftovers with the spaghetti - otherwise I'll figure something out.  Deanna may or may not be here - I never know on Wednesdays)

Thu - 21st (Trying a New Recipe)
Chicken 'pot pie' Crepes (crepes with a chicken and veggie filling), Salad

Fri - 22nd (Make it Fast - going to the movies tonight)
Chicken and Salad Wraps, French Fries

Sat - 23rd (Breakfast for Dinner)
Breakfast For Dinner: Pumpkin Pancakes, Cranberry Syrup, Bacon, Scrambled Eggs
Sun - 24th - Soup Sunday
Gulaschsuppe, Rolls

I'm not entirely satisfied with this game plan - no meatless nights at all, and a bit heavy on the beef, so this may wind up edited once I get home and can inventory what I have already.
