So my menu plan is going up today because I was simply not in the mood to menu plan yesterday. I confess I had a rough outline in my mind but then the weather changed and so did my plan. I realized I had back to back PTA planning type meetings in the afternoon. I also decided baked ham didn’t go well on a 65 degree January day. That was yesterday. Today we have rain and winter weather advisory with a chance for blowing snow by this afternoon. Has anyone coined the term weather whiplash yet? I’d much rather talk about that than how I didn’t manage to run ALL my errands yesterday in the great weather and have to go out in the yuck today. Hopefully, I’ll finish this post and get out while it is just rain and still somewhat warm. I’m still not in the mood to menu plan but life does go much smoother when I have a plan even if I don’t follow much of it. Forgive me if this week’s menu plan seems a bit uninspired or better yet, help me out by telling me about something exciting on your menu this week!
Yesterday, we ended up eating pork chops, corn, green beans, and chopped jicama. Do you like jicama? My boys do but neither my husband or myself really care for it. Of course, they eat it raw. Maybe I need to look into jicama recipes?
Spiral ham baked in the oven and potatoes along with leftover corn and green beans from yesterday. I think I will also make Old-Fashioned biscuits from last week again. They were a hit! I’m making Jello for dessert because I have a couple of boxes in the pantry and I’ve been craving it.
OUT! We’ll be attending a family birthday celebration at a Chinese restaurant.
Grilled Mozzarella sandwiches I’m planning on making these as pizza grilled cheese and maybe adding some pepperoni to the sandwiches and serving with pizza sauce. I look for my husband to eat leftover chili but I think these will be a fun Friday night dinner.
I’m curious what do you do when you are not in the mood to menu plan? Do you take a day and then go ahead like I did just now or do you take a break for the week?
