Now that I’m climbing some metaphorical mountains in my life, it turns out that the mundane details also rise up into greater relief. Perfect fodder for blogging, right? 🙂 Stuff like dinner has to be thought out and planned for in advance, and I’m interested in seeing how our diet changes as I’m away from home more. I’m also interested in how the housework tedium gets allocated, and how much of it the kids (11, 9, 5) can take on.
But for now, just a quick post documenting this week’s dinner menu and responsible parties.
Monday: panini night (kids eat before B. and I do because he works late Mondays)–I manned the panini press.
Tues: crockpot spaghetti sauce (I put it together before heading to Seattle for the day). B. cooked the pasta and garlic bread when he came home.
Wednesday: chili (leftover from a big Sunday pot of chili–thanks for the Sunday soup idea, Adam Gopnik!) and homemade applesauce. That one was kinda everyone heating up as much as they wanted.
Thursday: crockpot Thai coconut curry (I just put it together, never having done it in the crockpot before. We’ll hope for the best.)
1 can light coconut milk
some brown rice
2 tsp red curry paste
2 tsp condensed chicken stock
potatoes (lots of those baby ones from the garden)
Friday: pizza and salad night. B. makes the pizzas, I make the salad.
