Tuesdays are the day that I have to have something ready when we come home from Eva's Musical Acting Class. Didn't have many ideas until, while digging through the pantry, I found a jumbo can of French's Fried Onion Rings! Oh yeah, we're having their Onion Chicken for dinner tonight. I have extra mashed potatoes from Sunday's dinner (I made extra so I would have them on hand) and veggies only take around 6 mins in the microwave, so I was set for dinner. I made the chicken while the trips were at school. Then I let it cool and placed it in the fridge. When we came home, I put a bag of green beans and a couple of tablespoons water into my micro steamer from Pampered Chef (if you don't have one of these, GET ONE!!) Green Beans take a littler longer, like 9 mins in the microwave. I have been blessed with two microwaves, one over the stove and one in my dining room (LOVE IT!!) So while the green beans were cooking, I reheated the chicken and the mashed potatoes in the kitchen. That and some rolls and dinner was complete!!

BREAKFAST: Super simple today, I just toasted bagels, reheated some sausage patties, put a slice of american cheese on top of the sausage patty and put that on the toasted bagels. Voila! Breakfast Bagel Sandwhiches.
AFTER SCHOOL SNACK: I found mini hamburgers at the grocery store, so I reheated those for the triplets and served it with carrot sticks. Eva had a pb sandwhich with her carrot sticks. Since her class is an hour and a half, I popped some microwave popcorn and brought the portable dvd player. So while Eva was in class, the trips and I enjoyed a movie and some popcorn in the minivan.
