What's on Suzie's Menu?

What a weekend!  It was quite busy, but I felt really productive as far as school goes and got a lot of studying in at the lab for yet another Anatomy test this Sunday.  I hope to spend a lot of time focused on Little Steven this week in the evenings we actually get time together; school and blog will be done after he's in bed :)

Pasta Carbonara (called Creamy Linguini here until I realized there was a name for it)
Beef & Broccoli w/ Sesame Noodles
Chicken Parmesan w/ Creamy Pasta Bake
Easy Peasy Sausage Pasta Saute
Easy Peasy BBQ Chicken w/ Cheese Tortellini

Sorry to be so uninspiring this week, but I wanted to try at least one new item (Sesame Noodles) and keep the rest simple so I can spend as little time in the kitchen this week as possible.

Last week made me feel guilty (which is a pretty normal feeling for me, haha) because I didn't get to spend much quality time with my son.  My sleepiness is normal and I've grown to accept it, but I was just overwhelmed with 'stuff' to do because of the short week.

I hope you have a great week!  Remember, preparing a meal for your family doesn't have to be hard, especially if you have a basic plan to work with!

  1. Mmmm your menu sounds great Suzie! And I am with you on meal planning. It saves time, money and it just helps so much being so busy with work and kids!

  2. Thank you, Holly! I definitely used to go nuts trying to figure out what to eat every night and I decided that was NOT an option anymore :)
