Easy dinner meals for my husband to make this week

Source

As we head into this week, and as I am facing surgery tomorrow, I took everyone's advice and made sure we had easy to fix meals on hand for my husband to make this week. We are trying to keep things regular for the kids as much as possible, so I also took into mind what kinds of foods they like.

Instead of assigning different meals to each night like I would normally do, I have just made a list that my dear Husband can pick and choose from. Whatever isn't fixed this week will be moved to next week.

Here are the choices for this week: 

  • Lasagna (frozen in freezer)
  • Hamburger helper
  • Hot dogs and baked beans
  • Chicken patties with veggies
  • Macaroni and cheese and peas
  • Fish sticks, french fries and a veggie
  • Manwich, green beans and carrots
  • Waffles, sausage links, and fruit
  • Frozen pizza and fruit
I have every confidence in my husband's ability to feed the kids and to make things run smoothly this week and beyond. He has been great about helping out around the house and taking charge. He has really been amazing through all of this.

  1. He's showing his true colors and how much he cares for you! How sweet! Great menus, don't hesitate to ask the kids to help, too. Pass a vacuum, fold towels-very do-able. Good luck tomorrow!

  5. I was in the hospital for a week and the kids called every day telling me how mean he was, yelling at them for not eating, and making horrid meals. I had no chance to plan as I was on the grocery store floor screaming in pain before I went to hospital. He never took into account what they liked, just dumped cans of food, heated and forced them to eat. He ruined things in the wash that I had to replace after telling him not to wash certain things and dry, put things in the dishwasher that I told him not to--ruined! The place was a wreck and kids were hanging onto me, crying, begging me not to ever leave again. Your husband sounds like he is going to help you and kids will be okay.
