Cooking ahead for long hours to come

Isn't it funny how when you've had a particularly sleep deprived stretch, and then you get that sweet taste of sleep again how wonderful you feel the next morning? I'm having one of those super well rested, feel like I'm glowing kind of days. Sweetpea and I had both been battling congestion that was wreaking havoc on our sleep schedules (not just hers, I was waking like a newborn too!) and last night was the first night where we seemed to make a lot of progress. Thank goodness for simple blessings! Especially on what will be a particularly hectic week for us, so glad to have this great start!

I did a major marathon cooking session this weekend, partly for this week's meal, but also to put back for when EmDee goes on 12 hour days for at least two weeks...so far I was able to put back just short of a week's worth of meals for him - whew! Here's what's on our menu for this week:

Monday: cheesy hamburger casserole, steamed asparagus, fruit salad
Tuesday: bbq pulled pork sandwiches and oven fries
Wednesday: beef stirfry on rice with baked rangoons (recipe to follow next week if all goes well)
Thursday: pork and vegetable pasta (pork from the freezer from an earlier marathon cooking session) and fruit smoothies
Friday: sweet potato burritos with mexican rice

You are so awesome to plan everything in advance. Once I achieve SAHM status, I hope to be as good as you! And you even work and do it! Wow.
