[monday meals mashup] April 13th.

The sick leave policy for Moms is crap.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: we need a union. These working conditions are deplorable, and going downhill daily. Management keeps upping my workload but I'm not seeing any additional (or any) compensation for my work.

And now, now I'm forced to work when I'm sick.

Ridiculous conditions. Also, why couldn't I have gotten Sam's black plague last week when he was sick too? We could have laid on the couch together. Watched "Frozen" 17 times together. Eaten popsicles TO-GETH-ER. But no, now I have healthy Sam running around and he's all "play with me", "entertain me", "be a parent to me". So demanding.

AND on top of it all, we still need to eat for the week.

Someday I'll get to just be sick in bed. I'm assuming that'll be around 2030.

As always, my hope when posting our meals is to help you find yours. Meal planning saves us every night and keeps dinner time stress free, which is exactly how I like meal time to be. I'm enough stress for all of us. We don't need to add "well, what do you want to eat?" on top of that.

Monday: Pasta Soup. Again. Right, remember how this was accidentally ruined during disaster week earlier this month? All the correct ingredients have been bought and this will be perfect for Susie's sick day dinner. {recipe card below}

Tuesday: Balsamic Pot Roast in the crock pot. Love this recipe and the tang of the balsamic and soy sauce. We will be having mashed potatoes and asparagus with this. It'll probably be the last cold rainy day for a while so this may be our final pot roast until Fall.

Wednesday: Oven Fajitas. I'm so excited for this dinner. My friend brought these to us right after Kate was born and they received my highest rating of bomb.com (yup I still say that). The homemade taco seasoning is fantastic and I will be making a large batch of that to have on hand from now on. See ya later taco seasoning packets.

Thursday: Cashew Chicken. A lovely Martha recipe that is fantastic. It's fast and presents well - my kind of dinner.

Friday: Skillet Macaroni and Cheese. This is our new recipe for the week. You have to try at least one new dinner a week or you get in a rut. The whole recipe is made on the stove top with just a minute in the oven to crisp up the top. Sounds interesting. We'll give it a go.

And that's the game.
Happy meal planning.
