Saints and meals 11.04.13

It's my first day back at work. Prayers needed please...

This third time is still hard. I just don't want to be separated from my baby boy! But it also helps that the third time around, I'm leaving my baby with my FIL instead of day care.

It's going to be a challenge (it always is!) when I plan our menu when I'm working 40-50 hours a week. Thank goodness when I'm on call, I'm not at the hospital anymore so that helps. No more 80 hour work weeks. I can answer my beeper while preparing dinner.

This was my menu plan Friday night. Before Sebastian's baptism luncheon. Before my mil brought two pans of chicken adobo and my mom brought three dozens chicken wings. (Filipinos are known to make more than planned for parties)

Monday: last day as a sahm

St. Charles Borromeo, Patron Saint of Catechists, Catechumens, Seminarians
Meal: Linguine with shrimp and tomato cream sauce

Tuesday: Slow cooker roast - my own recipe**

Wednesday: After hours soup, Sandra lee slow cooker semi homemade meal cookbook

St. Didacus
San Diego, California, is named for this Franciscan, who was canonized in 1588.
Meal: Slow cooker honey sesame chicken, handle the heat

Blessed John Duns Scotus
A humble man, John Duns Scotus has been one of the most influential Franciscans through the centuries... Drawing on the work of John Duns Scotus, Pope Pius IX solemnly defined the Immaculate Conception of Mary in 1854.
Meal: Veggie pizza paleo recipe, in Italian bread
Depending on the amount of leftovers, we might just skip making this pizza.

Dedication of saint john lateran
Most Catholics think of St. Peter’s as the pope’s main church, but they are wrong. St. John Lateran is the pope’s church, the cathedral of the Diocese of Rome where the Bishop of Rome presides.

Meal: leftovers, Taiwan tea house for dinner

So I am skipping the shrimp linguine and slow cooker honey sesame chicken. The rest I have to make because I already have the perishables. The meat for the pot roast and Italian sausage are already in my fridge. Frozen shrimpies and frozen chicken thighs can wait till next week.

Happy back to work.
To me.
