With signs of Spring around in abundance this weekend, I decided to put a one-pot/crockpot meal on our menu this week as a way to say farewell to winter. I'm still wearing my toque on my early-morning dog walks so I know we haven't officially left this chilly season behind us, but I'm happy to be moving on - a least in spirit anyways.
I'm not working much this week, which is so nice leading up to March Break week with busy days and a house full of kids. As such, I will be doing almost all of the cooking but Rob's going to get in there mid-week with his rice and bean burritos. We'll share the recipe later this week, I promise! I'm also going to continue with my batch-cooking by doubling the shepherd's pie I'm making on Tuesday so we'll have one in the freezer for another day.
Also on tap for the week...lots of granola! We've completely run out and need to replenish the stock for breakfast and snacks and possibly even a weekend dinner.
What are you cooking this week?
Monday - Pork and Barley Stew with garlic green beans
Tuesday - Shepperd's Pie
Wednesday - Rice and bean burritos
Thursday - Spaghetti Tetrazini
Friday - Pizza with potatoes, mozzarella and thyme
Note: We're booking our summer campground spaces this week for camping weekends in June, July and August - do you have any suggestions on where we should go? We're a road-trip-loving-family and are not opposed to a bit of travel.
Another Note: Rob and I are hoping to sneak out to a movie one afternoon this week - any suggestions on what we should see? We're saving Alice in Wonderland for March Break week but would love to hear what you're watching right now and welcome any recommendations.
