Another Evening in the Kitchen….I Can’t Stop Myself

Some evenings I just get too overambitious.  Today I just don’t have a clear focus and instead of having a meal plan, I keep cooking and cooking.  Hopefully something will come together.  I’m having trouble settling back into the mealtime routine after being on holiday and now getting the kids homework and activities in before dinner.  These are some photos of my kitchen right now at 6:24 p.m.

I just finished making maringues for my daughter’s kindergarten class.  However I’m already second guessing them and may make something else.  That’s more like 10 pm tonight.

I realized I thawed out pork chops for dinner this morning and actually had a plan for them.  However I remembered my husband saying he didn’t want to eat meat.  Call it a resolution.  Anyways I called to get clarification.  Sure enough when he said meat he didn’t just mean red meat but pork too.  OK.  But I can’t waste food.  So I’ve cooked that.  Even if we don’t eat it tonight, at least I can now freeze it.  Tip:  I could not have put it back in the freezer without cooking it.  Since it came from the freezer already.  However after cooking it can then be warpped and frozen.

Now I’m creating a vegetable stir fry.

And for another protein for those not eating pork, I’ve made some marinated tofu.

So now the plan is a stir fry over rice noodles.  You can pick pork or tofu with your veggies.  That will have to work.  Did I mention I did all this is about 45 minutes?  My family comes home from my son’s Tae Kwon Do in about 10 minutes…
