Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great long weekend.
We were very thankful for many things but had a bit of a bad pet week--our fish died (it was a carnival fish, and it was 5+ years later), and our dog got out and tore her other ACL (known as a CCL in a dog), so she's on lockdown and bedrest (note: good luck with that) for four weeks, but it could have been so much worse. On the other hand, after Thanksgiving itself, we had almost nothing to do and so the house is in great shape. We crushed through tons of paper and other things and moved it right along.
Which is good, because this is a bit of a disjointed week; we're hoping it's the first actual whole week of school for November but all bets are off. Nights are a little loopy too, so this is all Subject to Change...
First, sides: I am making this salad, roasted brussels sprouts, and the fennel and celery salad on the sidebar at various points this week. (Or I might do the caramelized fennel and onions, depending on how coordinated I feel.)
Monday: trying something new, thanks to OrgJunkie herself--slow cooker teriyaki beef with pineapple. Three ingredients and beef, which I feel like I have better luck with in the slow cooker. Rice, broccoli.
Tuesday: taco Tuesday, of course.
Wednesday: In the final freezer countdown, I found pork tenderloins, so I will probably use the Joanne's Pork Tenderloin recipe (it can simultaneously defrost and marinate, right?). I also have a 6pm meeting this night so I'm hoping for a good slow cooker find!
Thursday: Not sure how we'll finesse this night, my husband and I are both working late, so I'll probably make chicken nuggets for the kids and something else from the freezer for us whenever we get home.
Wishing you a great week and relaxed holiday prep! Go see I'm an Organizing Junkie for more meal planning ideas.
