I have never been so happy to see a Monday roll around on the calendar. Last week will be here by known as: The Stomach Virus That Wouldn’t Quit. All week either someone was sick, or someone was recovering. It was a looooong week! The other reason I am so jazzed, with the glorious day off next Monday, this is the last Monday of the school year!! With all the craziness of last week I have created this weeks meal plan on the fly, so we will see how it goes; but first, let’s take a look at last week, and see how we did.
Monday: Slow cooker pasta, sauce & cheese. Okay, I know there is a way to cook pasta in the crock pot so it turns out correctly, but I can’t seem to figure it out. All the more reason why I need to look into the Instant Pot. The favor was great on this dish, but the pasta did not hold up.
Tuesday: Taco Salad Tuesday. I was so excited about this, especially with the nacho cheese tortilla chips I was planning to use. Unfortunately, about 30 minutes before dinner (while we were at swim practice) someone asked what we were having, when I told them, husband went pale and he asked if I was planning to use the chips in the pantry…that he ate Saturday. So, we have a new house policy: the DO NOT EAT sticky note. There were enough chips for the kids, and they loved it so we will do this again.
Wednesday: This was scrapped for a Mother’s Day re-do, cause this mama was in bed with the dreaded stomach virus.
Thursday: Sloppy cheese burgers didn’t happen. I was completely burnt out, so the kids had waffles, hubs had an omelet, and I had a turkey sandwich.
Friday: Pizza Night. Our favorite pizza restaurant was sold! What’s worse, we are not huge fans of the new pizza. So we had burgers instead.
Our Meal Plan Grade Overall: D. We do get an B- for effort, and a B+ for flexibility.
So, here is this week:
Monday: BBQ chicken skillet pizza . I am using the 4 ingredient no knead dough floating around Pinterest and my big cast iron pan. I’m pretty excited about this one. Pina colada salad (oranges, pineapple, and coconut flakes) and a tossed garden salad.
Tuesday: Spaghetti and Meatballs. It’s Taco Tuesday, but I need to get my homemade meatballs stocked back up in the freezer.
Wednesday: Soyaki marinated chicken, sautéed green beans, and Mac & Cheese.
Thursday: Salsa poached eggs, cheesy garlic grits, fruit salad, and Power Cake Waffles for the kiddos. I am going to make all of this ahead and keep it warm in the Crock Pot.
Friday: For the love of Pete, I don’t care as long as I don’t have to cook. So take out it is!
What’s on your menu this week? I’d love you to drop me a comment below!
