I will be gone this weekend visiting a friend, and Tom will be home alone with the children. That will be a first for us! I think the kids will have a great time doing things with their Daddy, but I'm sure going to miss them.
I've been making some preparations to assist Tom in the whole "what do I feed them?!?" adventure.
Here are some things I have in the freezer so far:
Turkey Vegetable Soup, to be heated and served with whole grain crackers
Salsa Rice Chicken and Corn Casserole
Turkey Stuffing Casserole (for church potluck on Sunday)
Homemade Breakfast Burritos
I plan on stocking up on staples for peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, lunch meat sandwiches, grilled cheese sandwiches, cereal (the kids will be thrilled with that!), applesauce, yogurt cups, carrot sticks, and other easy "finger foods".
I even bought a baking mix so Tom could whip up some pancakes with virtually no nutritional value! Hey, I might even buy some frozen chicken nuggets. We've all gotta live on the edge sometimes. *wink*
Today I will be mixing up a batch of refrigerator bran muffins, which is a family favorite and so easy to plop into muffin tins and bake.
I think they'll survive, don't you?
