While you guys are away in Baltimore the family still has to eat and not pizza and McDonald's all weekend. You would feel so guilty, or not. Publix or Kroger had nothing on sale this week to really help. That's okay we have stuff in the freezer and pantry.
The first thing I'm suggesting is a double batch of Individual Breakfast Pies. Recipe from Angie@Ballard Boys. These can be frozen and used as needed. The next is Breakfast Cookies, double batch. Both of these can be frozen, but don't bother they will be gone in two days anyway.
Now we have Friday night, lets have My Shrimp and Rice Casserole or Tuna/Salmon Noodle Casserole, can be made ahead and the hubby can bake it, make a simple salad, bake some bread. Dinner is ready. They will think Mom is still home, or Dad is so smart.
Saturday Lunch - Chicken Fajiita Potatoes. The topping can be made before you leave if necessary, and anyone can bake a potato. They will need this hearty lunch after cleaning the house for you and grocery shopping.
Saturday Night - Lum's Ollie Burgers- These are the best burgers ever. These would put McDonald's out of business.
Sunday Lunch - After church let them fast food it. Please try to find a healthier fast food. They will be a little busy this afternoon. Tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches (no recipe provided) are always a good thing, if they hate fast food. Right.
SundayDinner - They have missed you sooo much they are going to make Savory Pot Roast for your welcome home dinner. You are going to rave about it, and the mashed potatoes that are from the refrigerated section of the grocery. With that wonderful pot roast gravy you will never know they aren't homemade.
Not only have they been well fed, maybe, just maybe, they will appreciate a little more what you do everyday to keep them happy. Make sure all recipes are printed and left for hubby or at least cooking instructions.
Hope you all have a fabulous time in Baltimore!
