Happy Monday to you fab fans & followers!
I hope that you all had a fabulous weekend. It was absolutely beautiful here (mid-high 70′s all weekend), and I thoroughly enjoyed every second of the weather. Got a little workin’ at karate in on Saturday and just enjoyed our Sunday (instead of doing what we needed to do like meal plans, groceries and laundry). Justice met the Easter Bunny for the 1st time and she fell in love. We had a hard time getting her to part ways. (that pic will follow later this week or next)
So. Here we are on Monday and I have the meal plan for the week ready for you (oh yeah…and us too).
Sunday – Yesterday we hit up Applebee’s. We stayed away from them for years due to their incredibly limited selection but we’ve rejoined the ranks of diners at the restaurant thanks to their increase in delicious menu selections. (No, totally not paid or compensated for this endorsement at all-just impressed with their current menu and wanting to share )
Monday – Today we get to have what was originally planned for last Saturday. Salmon filets with a 7 vegetable couscous. I will be writing up a little post on this absolutely delicious couscous that we found-it’s well worth sharing.
Tuesday – It’s Meatball & Vegetable Stew for us tomorrow. Yummmm! I quite enjoy this Dump & Ditch. Different, tasty, hearty. Good combination!
Wednesday – We’ll be having Chicken Stroganoff on our plates for this midweek meal. It is, as per usual lately, another Dump & Ditch. I recommend this one if you’re looking for little different take on a ‘classic’. (Just be sure to remember to make the noodles-somehow I’ve managed to forget this step half the time… Hahaha)
Thursday – We’ll be having organic mac-n-cheese with some ground turkey tonight. I’m so sick of ingredient lists that are longer than my arm, but I also need some options for a quick meal when I don’t have the time, or opportunity, to make a meal in advance. This one is a suitable compromise.
Friday – Dump & Ditch Pizza baby! Soooo tasty! And how can you get better than D&D?!?! Woo!
Saturday – It’s the scheduled Scrounge day on this, the last day of the meal plan. Whether or not it stays here is up in the air, but…here it be. At least for now.
And there you have it. My highly uncreative and unoriginal meal plan for this week. No new recipes like I planned. I managed to get bronchitis from my sweet little girl being sick this last week and I’m just not feeling up to trying anything new right now. Well, trying-yes, making…that’s an entirely different story!
How does your family get by when you’re sick?? Do you suck it up and cook away or do you leave them to themselves to manage??
