Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween… Daughter wanted to be Cinderella and son was Spiderman. I feel like it was Halloween for the whole month though because they were wearing the costumes every week!:)
As for the whole month of October- whew! It has been quite an adjustment becoming a school mom! In addition to the driving back and forth daily, there’s the extra school activities, plus the extra curricular ones too!! And she’s only five! I was shocked at how much I spent on gas last month…OMG!
The thing affected most by this is dinner time! I always feel like I’m scrambling around 3-5PM, whereas before I used to just be home, leisurely cooking the meal for a 5:30PM dinner time. I realized the only solution to my problem is pushing my dinner time. My kids seem to eat better later, so I’m doing it! This gives me a little more time to prepare and not have to resort to eating out.
So here we go…
Monday: Fried rice
Tuesday: Spinach & Cheese quesadilla
Wednesday: Ham, Cheese, Spinach sandwich
Thursday: Chicken taquitos
Friday: Mini pizza
Monday: Chinese food
Tuesday: Omurice with Kimchi jjigae for hubbie
Wednesday: Bibimbap with veggies, fried egg
Thursday: Chicken & Potatoes ( 닭볶음탕) Spicy for us big kids, soy sauce based for the real kids.
Friday: Kalbi with Lettuce wraps, Bean Paste soup with tofu & veggies, Steamed Egg
I haven’t been cooking as much Korean just because of time, but I think my whole family is craving it, so going all Korean this week. This is great because now I only have to go to one or two different grocery stores vs. three or more!
Happy Cooking and happy Election Day! Hope everyone can make time to go vote today!
