I don’t know what happened to my earlier post. If you stopped by earlier to a ‘page not found’, I apologize.
Last week my menu got turned upside down. I can’t pinpoint everything that went wrong but I did learn one lesson. While I’m solo-parenting, my meals have to be nearly ready to go or I will opt for something requiring less work like frozen popcorn chicken or picking up fast-food on our way home from a day out. So I spent this weekend doing some prep work–cooking & dicing a couple chicken breasts, making & rolling meatballs (which I froze), making barbecue sauce for the kids’ favorite barbecue chicken.
