Hi guys. I feel like such a failure. That list I made last week? Didn’t happen. Not a bit of it. Unfortunately, my bronchitis took a turn for the worse and I had to get some codeine to open up my bronchial tubes. Luckily, three nights of that (and no coughing!) worked like a charm and I’m all better. Unfortunately, those three days made for a mom who didn’t want t cook. The hubby cooked Monday. Tuesday I picked up pizza. And Wednesday…honestly, I don’t remember. Wow. Glad my head finally cleared! After trying to cook several of these meals for weeks, I am throwing them into the backup meal plan and creating a whole new one. Maybe a fresh start will get me excited to be in the kitchen again.
Today – I don’t usually cook on Saturdays, but, we’ll be home and I feel like making it happen. Maybe this is a good sign? Plus, Amanda from Fig and Thistle posted her meal plan for the week and made mention of something called Cider Roasted Chicken. My mouth salivated. Then I remembered finding The Food Lab’s recipe for Ultra-Gooey Stovetop Mac and Cheese and a meal plan was begun.
Sunday – Most likely leftovers! I’m saving the chicken for Tuesday, but I expect we’ll have mac and cheese left over. I may cook that kielbasa from last week to go with it. I don’t want it to go bad.
Monday – Next week promises to be absolutely crazy at work. And most Monday’s I’m too tired to cook anyway. So I plan to make these French Bread Pizzas for the fam and a regular gluten free pizza for myself. Yay easy!
Tuesday – We’re looking at cold temperatures and another weekend of rain, so I thought a A Proper Pot of Chicken Stew sounded perfect. Yum, yum, give me some.
Wednesday – I figure by Wednesday, my busy week will be starting to catch up on me. We have 38,000 packets to print for the Alumni department at my university and we have to get it done fast. I’m really hoping I’m not late getting home all week! I plan to have a simple Spinach, Mushroom, and Feta Crustless Quiche Wednesday. Perhaps with a salad on the side? Does that even make sense?
Thursday – Tacos with my family. Yay. (I hate home cooked taco meat because everyone in my family uses taco seasoning packets instead of making their own. It makes me irrationally angry. It’s so easy and much healthier to make! *end rant*)
Friday – Just me! Break time!
Let’s hope making this list will help me stay organized, focuses, and get it done quickly! How do you plan for the week?
