Oh, I am just not feeling creative!! I made up my menu but I reserve every right to go visit all the creative ladies posting their menus at Laura’s I Am an Organizing Junkie blogsite. When I go visit them I know I will find many more creative ideas for this week. But this is where the menu sits as of this morning:
Grilled Chicken steamed rice and carrots
Grilled hamburgers chips and veg
Rotisserie chicken from Sams
Chicken strips and salad and rice
Enchilada casserole both chicken and beef
The weather is supposed to warm back up and as long as it is not pouring I am sure I can convince DCG DarlingCaveGeek to grill for me. That will be a bonus—grilled food just tastes so wonderful. And he always mans the grill. What a guy.
Ballet is back in session so our time in the evenings is limited and that would be why I am stopping at Sam’s for a rotisserie chicken. I have to say I cannot buy an uncooked chicken for what I pay for a finished one there. They are under $5 and everyone eats it. Therefore no waste. I am pretty insistent on the fact that I don’t care how inexpensive/cheap a meal is—if half gets thrown in the trash it is wasteful and expensive. So if it is gone, gone, gone my conscience is clear.
Apparently I am not the only one lacking in creativity when it comes to menu planning as shown by this article. I think perhaps I should suggest they go visit Laura’s Menu Plan Monday and get some new ideas with me!!
