As I admitted in today’s Daily Dash vlog, it’s been a little rough being a single parent this month while my husband is out on the road.
Typically, we eat much more simply when he’s gone. And while that’s been true for the most part, I’ve also taken the time to do some experimenting in the kitchen.
One of my favorite things to do is make two meals out of one. Below you’ll find where I take meatballs I made last week and use some of them (and the sauce) to make lasagna this week. (Extras can always be frozen or shared with another family).
I also switched our eMeals plan from Paleo to Slow Cooker – I felt like I’d gotten a ton of great ideas from the Paleo plan already and needed a little more education in using a slow cooker, so I’m going to try to incorporate those more, especially on Mondays & Wednesdays when I’m working on iBlog magazine all day!
As always, I hope you take what’s helpful for you and just leave what’s not. Here you go:

Monday: Lasagna (using Chef Anne Burrel’s noodle layering technique)

Sunday: Egg, cheese & bacon burritos
What are you eating in your home this week?
