Working Mama's Dinner Plans

Our little family on St Patrick's Day!
Well, today is the last day of my vacation.  Since the hubs took next week off from work to stay home with the kids for part of spring break, I told my work I was available all five days this week.  Definitely second guessing that decision today!
Since the plan is for the hubs to do fun exciting daddy-daughter stuff during the day, I am going to try to make dinner be as easy as possible (since cooking is not one of the hubs main talents...). 

Going through the newly organized fridge, freezer and pantry, and checking my fridge and freezer for ingredients, it looks like it's going to be a pretty simple grocery list this week.  The only thing I need to buy is salad and potatoes!  All of the other ingredients I either have on hand, or are cooked into my pre-made frozen meals already!
At the end of this week I will be taking part in my first 10KM Run in about 10 years!! I am a little nervous, but I'm hopeful that I will cross the finish line in one piece!!

On the menu this week:

Monday - Teriyaki Chicken Stirfry with chow mein noodls
Tuesday - Lasagne, Caesar Salad and Garlic Breadsticks

Wednesday - Beef Enchilada Bake (recipe will be posted this week!)
Thursday - Baked Ziti
Friday - Leftovers
Saturday - 10 km Run Day & Birthday dinner with the Family
Sunday - Roasted Turkey, Potatoes and Vegetables
