Meal Planning and Yellow Belt

Hello. It is Saturday night-what are you doing? I am getting ready for bed and thinking about meal planning for the week ahead-BORING-I know. I do have to work tomorrow-how the heck did I not realize it was Super Bowl Sunday when I could make my schedule requests???
No party this year, but I am leaving D and the boys with lots of snacks to eat and a steak to grill.
Today B got promoted to yellow belt in jiu jitsu-he was very excited. I am going to try to get a better picture up soon, but am having issues...

Tonight we did not do leftovers as planned, but instead had Firecracker Shrimp from the Pioneer Woman-spicy and awesome!

The week ahead...
Sunday-grilled steak and snacks
Monday-Pasta Carbonara (we all love bacon and cheese)
Tuesday-Chicken and Rice
Wednesday-Thai Coconut Chicken soup and crab angels
Friday-leftovers (B has a party to go to for best friend G)
Saturday-Mexican Penne Pasta (from the freezer-made about 2 weeks ago from the Packet Queen-made enough for dinner for all of us and enough for lunch for me the next day)

Enjoy the Super Bowl!

Oooh, what are crab angels? They sound interesting!

Crab Angels are wonderful! I kinda made up the recipe after eating them in our fave Thai restaurant. Make a mixture of cream cheese, lump crab and whatever Asian seasoning you like (garlic and ginger are good). The consistency should be thick. Put a dollop in the center of the wonton skin, moisten the edges and pinch to make a little purse. Bake at 375 for about 15 min until golden brown. Serve with sweet and sour sauce, soy sauce or a hot sauce. Easy and yummy!
