How we worked it was:
Arrival day hamburgers and hotdogs and salads (potato, pasta and the like) provided by....not sure who brought that stuff.
Great Grandparents: pulled pork sandwiches with pasta salad and baked beans
Gutierrez (my peeps): tri tip steak on the grill, rice and potato salad
Old Benza (Kyle's peeps): pork loin on the grill (we never tried it this way, we bought some at costco this weekend and we're having it tonight!), Cesar salad, potato and pasta salad
Young Benza (us, hee hee): carne asada fajitas, spanish rice, refried beansNix (family friends that also came with us): lasagna
last night: hamburgers and hotdogs and salads (potato, pasta and the like) provided by....not sure who brought that stuff.
Worked out perfect!! Except we had to schlepp a lot of food back home.You can read more about what we did while we were there by reading last week's posts.During our week of gloriously comfortable weather we had:
spaghetti and meatballs, fajitas (because we brought home 50 tortillas), stubbs chicken on the grill with scalloped potatoes and peas, chicken potato fajita, nachos (using up the tortilla chips we brought home from Chelan) and on Sunday that yummy pork loin on the grill--it's mushroom and pepper seasoning from costco.
This week we return to the center of the earth so I bet we end up not cooking at home everyday as planned, but our goal is:
Monday: Cheddar Chicken and Potatoes
Tuesday: Cheeseburgers on the grill, baked beans, green salad
Wednesday: Chicken Rice Skillet--this is a concoction using precooked and cubed chicken, fried rice-a-roni (i know..it's nasty processed box food, but I love it and can't figure out how to recreate it on my own), broccoli.
Thursday: stubbs pork chops on the grill, carrots (from our garden?), potato dish of some kind
Friday: Ham casserole I have a dentist appointment at 3pm..this is quick and easy, but requires the oven so...I suspect this will end up being an eat out day.
Saturday: orange sauce enchiladas, spanish rice
Sunday: spaghetti and meatballs....I need to try to make something that results in leftovers for Kyle's lunch.
