Menu Planning Monday

Last week I had grand plans to prepare 4 home cooked meals for M and I. However, last week was one of those weeks where everything that could conspire against me did. On Monday, M had to be on site for one of the two projects he is managing which meant I would be eating alone. Tuesday was a birthday dinner out for me. Wednesday was a long/late work day which left little time prior to church for cooking. And on Thursday, I was just too tired to attempt to cook. Thankfully, I have amazing in-laws who love to cook for their family.

Therefore on Monday night, I joined my MIL, FIL, SIL and two nieces for a delicious meal of grilled chicken breasts, home made mac and cheese, and lots of fresh veggies. Wednesday night, my in-law's once again saved the day with hamburgers and french fries for a quick meal. And on Thursday my FIL prepared his signature stir-fry. I loved eating all the veggies.....yum-o!

This week is looking like it will be a much easier one in terms of work responsibilities, so M and I should both make it home at a decent hour. Therefore, we are returning the favor to the in-law's and cooking for them. I will be using the same menu as I had last week.

So often weeks do get jumbled up! That's why I have such a hard time planning meals. Instead I end up making a few big meals at some point during the week and eating those some nights and leftovers/whatever the others.
