Can I come hang out with you guys????
Actually I was trying to plan a festive but OP menu. DH announced last night that he is not going to the deer lease (damnit!) so who knows.
DCH~The cabin sounds great (as does dads menu!
) But you didn't mention if it was much of a trip for you. So, please take the following OP suggestions for what they are and if they could travel with you.
Grilled or baked chicken (make in advance)
Premade frozen sirloin burger patties
beer butt chicken (we made it on the grill but suppose you could bake??)
chilled mixed bean salad
cole slaw // cabbage slaw
vegetable medley salad
Maybe consider on spaghetti night-bring some frozen meatballs and enjoy the sauce/meatballs with a nice salad.
Irish stew? Hmmmm, pick out the potatoes?
Enchiladas-now that's a tuffy. Any chance you can bake some of the good "innerds" and leave the tortilla out? And make up for that sacrifice by bringing some pork rinds to dip in guacamole?
Please remember....holidays are always hard. But make sure that if you're taking in more carbs than you would normally, make wise choices. Try getting those carbs in the form of veggies and the good LC stuff instead of the sugary/starchy carb demony stuff!
