I avoid bringing all four with me at all costs. Even though I make sure they are well fed and get a snack from the bake shop upon arrival, they are still filled with demands. And even if you have the most organized shopping list on the planet, four screaming voices in your ear can really mess with your head.
So we paid (much more than usual thanks to my very sorry bargaining with the children), went home and realized--oh we forgot:
- chicken sausage
- whole wheat pastry flour
Let's start with last night's meal:
Monday: Chorizo with kale and cannelli beans (this is it--just saute all three with some Hungarian paprika and serve)
Tuesday: Chicken Parmesan (because we could not eat it last Friday due to the carpet craziness)
Wednesday: Carry out (was meant to be fish night but that is not happening now)
Thursday: Tuscan Soup (left-overs from last week in freezer)
Friday: Cincinnati Chili
Saturday: Salmon with some type of greens (if I remember to get it!)
So there you have it. My Monday menu--a meal short and a day late.
Next week, I go to the grocery store with one child and will hopefully remember to review the shopping list but I make no promises.
