Last week, I semi planned and we got through the week. However this week I knew I needed to plan, for realz. I was away Saturday night and stopped at the food store to pick up some chicken and rice for dinner. Travey bbqed it, I had him do an extra piece so I could have it on my salad this week for lunch.
After dinner I grabbed a pen and paper and told Travey we were meal planning and I needed ideas. He said Shepherd's pie, I said chicken fajitas, he said brats and French fries, I said lasagna, he said meatloaf and I said pizza. I then looked at the calendar to see what we had going on this week and arranged the menu.
Monday-brats, french fries and salad
Tuesday-chicken fajitas (chicken from the big package I bought Sunday)
Wednesday-lasagna and garlic bread (I have one in the freezer I made last month when I was making one for Travey's injured co-worker) and it's chemo night
Thursday- Shepherds Pie (I forgot I have Open House at work, I'll have to make it ahead of time)
Friday-meatloaf, salad and sweet corn
And here we are on Monday and Travey is working late, good thing brats are easy to cook, I ate early!
