Being gone five nights a week is taking its toll on my usual plan of staring at the refrigerator and cabinets a few hours before supper and hoping for inspiration. Soooooooooo... (a year later) I'm back to Menu Plan Monday. It worked the first time. Don't know why I stopped, other than I'm lazy. Maybe I'll get it together. At least we'll be eating better while I try.
My honey's on the road this week, so I'm just feeding the boys and I. This is our last Monday night that we will be home by 7p.m. Starting next week we will get home near 9p.m. OUCH!! So it will be sandwiches in the van next week, I'm thinking.
Monday--Goulash and Doo Doo Bread.
Tuesday--Popcorn Chicken, green beans and rice
Wednesday--Nachos with trimmings, fresh fruit
Thursday--Breakfast for Dinner: pancakes, scrambled eggs and sausage
Friday--Lasagna, garlic bread and salad
Saturday--grilled steak, broccoli, mashed potatoes and salad
Sunday--Grilled chicken, mixed veggies in the grill wok, salad
Personally, I am struggling to eat a low carb diet, modifying a couple mainstream diets to fit my health needs. But the boys definitely don't need to eat that way so I cook for them and eat around what I can and substitute salad and low carb veggies a lot for me. So a couple of those nights, I'll be vicariously enjoying (especially those pancakes--I had one last week and need to not do that again!)
Eat well!! And visit Laura at I'm an Organizing Junkie for more menu ideas!
