Menu Plan: Pasta Revolt

Have I ever told you that we eat pasta a lot around here? It is my go to meal when things get crazy. It works because all my kids love pasta, so I throw in a few veggies and we have a complete meal. This worked well for me until last month. Remember when the kids revolted against sandwiches? Well the pasta revolt is in full swing. I knew they were getting tired of pasta last month, but now a few have threatened to move out if I put it on the menu. Hmmm….

This becomes problematic because I’m headed out of town next week for the Savvy Blogging Summit, an event I co-host with three other fabulous bloggers. My kids get to have a wonderful time hanging out with their grandma, but I still need to figure out quick and easy meals for someone who isn’t use to cooking for seven!


Because I will be gone next week breakfasts will probably be cereal and bagels. I’m not expecting my mother-in-law to make hot breakfasts and my teenagers think sleeping until 10:30 am is normal during the summer. 😉

The Lunch List


Salisbury steak, green beans, mashed potatoes

Salisbury Steak

This is one of my mother-in-laws favorite meals, so I try to make it ahead and freeze it for when she visits or babysits.

Served with noodles and vegetables

Salmon Turnovers (another favorite)

served with corn, salad

Pizza (probably frozen, but there is a click on the link for a recipe)

Chicken Pot Pie

  5. Pasta revolt……….

    That made me laugh. Around here it is the potato revolt. We are remodeling our kitchen so the ONLY thing that I have to cook on is the grill. THat has been going on for 14 weeks. So………..potatoes and veggies it is. How we would die for some pasta around here : )
