This week I abandoned meal planning (and everything else, really) in favor of repainting Miss Seven (almost Eight)’s room. I grabbed a few things at the grocery on Sunday night, but other than that, I’ve been winging it. We had pesto again (we had it last week), which isn’t really a problem, especially when the basil comes straight from the garden.
But tomorrow is the Fourth of July, which calls for some celebratory eating–we’re going to be hungry after all that parading. We’re sticking to the classics: hamburgers, hotdogs, corn on the cob, potato salad, strawberry pie and watermelon. (This feast should take care of lunches for the rest of the weekend, too.) The Hub has volunteered to do the grocery shopping after work today, and I’m taking him up on it. Shopping brings out the worst in the Little Five lately, so I’m accepting every opportunity to avoid it.
What about the rest of the weekend?
Friday: Shrimp tacos, black beans, quick slaw with lime dressing
Saturday: Thai-Style Ground Pork with Chinese Eggplant, coconut rice
Sunday: Homemade Pizza
I’ll be back next week with the progress on Miss Seven’s room makeover and maybe even a recipe.
What are you cooking to celebrate Independence Day?
