Menu Plans may not be for everyone. If you are one of those lucky few who can stop after a full day of activity and throw together a nutritious and balanced meal for your family, you have my respect. Please share your secret with me! Menu plans must happen for me. Otherwise, we our meals look like what happened last week:
Domino’s Pizza on Monday (by the way, I think I ate too much of this in college because I could barely eat my dinner)
Roast (BBQ sandwiches) on Tuesday
Leftover pizza or roast on Wednesday
Chik-Fil-A on Thursday (except for the kid who doesn’t like it and wasn’t hungry until later and ate popcorn for dinner)
I’m not sure anyone ate a proper dinner on Friday (G ate at Sam’s Club with his dad and J and I had Chex Mix)
Pretty sure my menu plan the week of Halloween wasn’t as scary as the non-plan listed. I know my informal menu plans aren’t always quite that bad but I can feel us slipping and so I need to get back to making proper menu plans. Of course, this upcoming week is not without a few challenges (I work late on Monday, the boys have school activities on Tuesday, and my husband will be out hunting so not here for dinner several days) but I determined to feed to my family a bit better than last week.
TUESDAY: Frozen Pizza (lots of school activities)
WEDNESDAY: Soup with baked potato or grilled cheese
FRIDAY: Sweet and Spicy Bacon Chicken
The plan this week may not be the healthiest but hopefully it will get us back into a healthier routine and eating out a little less. Other random items that I plan to fix this week include banana bread and puppy chow (J discovered this on Halloween and I refuse to pay the store price for that stuff so the plan is to make our own). As usual, I’m linking up over at Menu Plan Monday hosted by Laura from I’m An Organizing Junkie. Be sure to go check it out for menu ideas that are a lot better than the one I have listed here!
