|Last week's turkey-bacon and zucchini-onion kebabs. |
We cooked them on the grill and served them with roast potatoes - yummy!
M - orange chicken, rice, mixed vegetable stir-fry, fresh fruit
T - homemade chili, baked potatoes, shredded cheddar
W - nachos supreme, sliced apples
During the time Mom and Dad are here, there are a few places we know they want to go for meals, so those are on our list. Often, we have lunch 'out' and then a lighter supper. Those dinner meals will be things like cheese and crackers with fresh fruit, finger foods like hard-boiled eggs or potstickers (if I can get them made), maybe even a bowl of cheerios and milk. We will also be on the road some of the time, so I've been stocking up on easily portable foods like granola bars (which were on sale several times lately, and I had coupons too!), pretzels and chex mix. Add some veggie sticks, fresh fruit, dried fruit, muffins and homemade cookies, and we definitely won't starve.
So, in addition to the stuff mentioned above, I'll be baking some blueberry muffins, an apple pie and some cookies. We also have a couple of 'if needed' meals planned for at home that will happen either this week or next, depending on what we're doing, and when (and where).
Do you cook differently when you have guests? Do you make foods at home for times when you're on the road? What's on the menu at your place this week?
