I got up at 5:29 this morning to take the girl to cheerleading practice. This is much earlier than I am used to, but I am finding that I like the extra time. I can get so many things done before the time I am usually even out of bed! However, The Muny season opens tonight, so I don’t think I will be getting up so early tomorrow. We’ll see how long I can keep up the early morning hours–hopefully these two weeks of early morning practices will be enough to shift my schedule at least a little bit earlier.
Planning considerations for this week:
- Muny on Monday, nothing too heavy before we sit outside in the heat.
- Racquetball at 6:30 on Tuesday, with a required stop at GameStop to pick up the Lego Batman game that the boy reserved last week. We will need something that the girl can cook before I get home and we can eat fast or take with us.
- I am trying to avoid the store before payday on Thursday. I could buy a few things, but I would rather use what we have first.
Monday: Corn pasta with butternut squash pasta sauceand chicken tenderloins
Tuesday: Italian sausages, baby carrots
Wednesday: Lentils and rice with caramelized onion tahini sauce, honey hot sauce chicken tenders
Thursday: Salmon noodle casserole, steamed broccoli
Saurday: BBQ brats, artichokes, asian slaw with ginger peanut dressing
What are you having this week?
