Harried 'hounds: what's your get-dinner-on-the-table-FAST meal plan for this week?

The Dairy Queen | Oct 29, 2012 11:41 AM

Inspired by some advice I got in this "Cooking strategies for working parents of young children" thread http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/863756 wherein I explained I've been struggling to get dinner on the table during my work week, I've been doing some more structured weekly meal planning.

I'm always curious about what other people have planned for the week. I thought we could help each other out by posting our weekly meal plans in this thread, then reporting back how it worked out for us. Also, it would be great if you could point out anything important about your recipes and plan that are essential for success. For instance, are certain elements "prepped in advance"? Does the recipe rely on planned leftovers? Is the meal a "pantry meal"? Do you double this recipe and freeze half?

You don't have to be working, or a parent, to post in this thread, just someone who is under a lot of time pressure to get meals on the table in a hurry.

I know there are a lot of very harried East coast 'hounds hunkered down right now just hoping they don't get flooded and/or lose power. I hope you folks can join us soon. Be safe!
