Hypoglycemic tendencies run in my family and if food isn't administered in a timely manner, things unravel pretty quickly. If you happen to run across one of us and we seem to be a little on the snappish side - just toss a piece of bread our way, wait for us to eat it and then you can resume conversation in a few minutes.
I know there's a lot of people who understand the "I must eat NOW" problem and also have granola bars stashed in their purse or get nervous going somewhere if you're not sure what the food situation will be.
That's my explanation for this post because on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday's at 5:30pm I go to bootcamp. That totally interferes with dinner time, so I just have to make sure that dinner on those three nights is stuff that's either simmering on the stove, or in the oven cooking so when I walk in the door we can eat within 5 minutes. Or else I get cranky.
Here's what's going on this week.
M: Beans, rice, chile's stuffed with rice, raisins & almonds
T: Chicken w/soy, orange, ginger sauce, coconut rice & veggies
W: Garbanzo, eggplant, potato curry & rice & leftover chicken (for the non-vegan people in the house who would make my life miserable if I made them eat an all vegetable curry)
Th: Minestrone soup w/bread
Do you have a meal plan for the week or do you just wing it?
