Today’s been different than previous days. My husband went back to work after 10 days off. Our friends went home. The kids and I have been trying to clean things up, catch up on laundry, and get ready for back to school tomorrow. As a result of a chicken that didn’t thaw, I had to take a detour from our meal plan.

Instead, we had leftovers which wasn’t as bad as it sounds. Grilled tri-tip goes great in a salad! Romaine, spinach, hard boiled egg, garbanzo beans, feta cheese, tomatoes, avocados, and some sliced steak? Delish! I’ll take leftovers every night.

Breakfast: cereal, leftover Slab Apple Pie, and oatmeal
Lunch: leftover pasta, fruits and veg for FishPapa’s lunch; Chicken Pot Pie at home for the rest of us.
Dinner: Steak Salad, Whole Wheat Baguettes (made fresh from scratch this afternoon)
