(Image credit: Christine Gallary)

When you want an egg dish to feed a crowd or make enough breakfast for the week, breakfast casseroles are just the ticket. Eggs hold together whatever ingredients you want to put in the baking dish, and in this case it's a filling combination of frozen diced potatoes, savory sausage, a whole bag of baby spinach, and, of course, a few handfuls of shredded cheese.

Instead of spending my Friday night meal planning, cocktail in hand, I made a Trader Joe's run. To be honest, I went for peonies and to get out of the house by myself, as my husband has been out of town for the last few weeks. I walked out $100 poorer and peony-less (they were out). What I did gain was a freezer full of shortcuts to get me through another 10 days of solo parenting while my husband is gone again.

This week's meal plan is inspired by some freezer shortcuts that I stocked up on at Trader Joe's, but none of the recipes here require TJ's-specific ingredients — many of these shortcuts can be found at any store.

My Mom Travels with the Vitamix of Coffeemakers — Travel Bites

There are a few things you should know about my mom. First, she is not a traveler.

All of these things together help explain why she now travels with what I call the Vitamix of coffeemakers.
