Meal Plan - 10/14 - 10/21

We did a really good job sticking with our meal plan last week. We didn't make the poppyseed chicken on Thursday as I went to a Pampered Chef party at a friend's house and left Paul and Finley to fend for themselves. (I think Kraft may have helped with dinner that night ;) )

I took a few pictures of some of the recipes I tried last week and will hope to get them up this week.

This upcoming week has a few days to work around. We have small group on Sunday night so I will try to make a potluck dish for that night. Monday consists of me being gone from 7:30 am - 10:30 pm so that results in no prepared dinner. Paul is also gone until 9:30 pm on Mondays as well.

Friday: Out to eat!!! (First time in over a month!)

Saturday: Poppyseed chicken, brown rice and vegetable

Sunday: Some kind of broccoli dish, still need to find the recipe

Monday: No dinner

Tuesday: Marinated pork chops and baked beans

Wednesday: Breakfast

Thursday: Pasta primavera

What's on your meal plan?

Meal Plan - 10/7 - 10/13

New game plan.

Life has been CRAZY lately. Work is super busy. I'm teaching a course as an adjunct instructor at a local university. Track season is in full swing. I'm still nursing my plantar fascitis. Ugh...

One thing has remained constant. Meal Planning.

Meal planning has become my sanity in these crazy times. It what keeps relatively meals showing up on our table, preventing us from eating out very much and helps me feel prepared instead of frazzled when I get home from work.

My new game plan is to share my meal plan for the upcoming week each Thursday/Friday. I usually put together my meal plan for Friday - Thursday on Thursday night. Then I go grocery shopping on Friday for the ingredients I need. I will share recipes for foods that I find from the internet. Up this week:

Hancock Mac-n-Cheese (post to come!)

Chicken Caesar Sandwiches on French Bread

Going to the inlaws for dinner!

No cook night - I'm teaching, husband works late.

Beef Tacos

Breakfast Sandwiches with pearsauce

Poppyseed Chicken with brown rice and broccoli.
