We have a pretty basic menu plan this week for a fairly average week. I’m pretty sure I don’t have one meal planned that isn’t a repeat from a previous week. However, I do NOT have tacos on the menu this week or any other variation of Mexican food. I just need a break from the tacos. Last week was a busy blur and so I’m excited for a bit of a calmer week ahead. Of course, we were supposed to have a fairly calm weekend this past weekend with 2 mostly clear calendar days that somehow ended up being more exhausting than when the days are super scheduled. Does that happen to anyone else? Here’s what’s cooking at our house this week:
Since last week was such a busy blur it meant that our meal plan went up in the air like a poof of smoke. The grilled chicken wasn’t too bad but of course, not everyone liked it. At the suggestion of my husband, I ended up simply serving tacos on Wednesday night instead of the soup. It was nice to have one night where everyone ate without complaint. HOWEVER, ONE DAY I WILL MAKE MY SOUP! By Thursday, we were letting a clown serve us dinner instead of anything happening here. Friday was another overwhelmingly busy day and since I felt under the weather with no soup to soothe myself, I did what was necessary. I ordered the kids (and myself) pizza! We mostly lived out of the freezer over the weekend until I made it to the store on Sunday afternoon.
How did your menu planning go last week? Was it Soup(er) unlike mine or did you have a few curves in your week as well? Either way, go check out Menu Plan Monday over at orgjunkie.com for lots of inspiration!
