I really did NOT stay on the menu this week at all! Monday I had taken the steak out for our Monday night dinner when I got a call from my mom. To make a long story short (and I won't bore you with all the details) I made an emergency trip to Lakeland and my mom ended up in the hospital for the week. After driving back and forth every other day (staying with a friend one night and coming home the next) and too many tests to count, I was able to bring her home Saturday afternoon. To say that I was not on the "menu train" would be a major understatement!
I spent Sunday trying to recoup from the that two hour drive one way I made six times last week and the long hours of sitting in a hospital room - I don't think anything will wear you out more than sitting in a hospital waiting to find out results of tests! Anyway, I am back home now and will do my best to get caught up with all the housekeeping that was put on hold all last week.
Now, on to this month's menu - can you believe that it is already April??? Where is this year going?? It just seems to be flying by whether we are ready or not - in a little over two short months I'll be a first time grandmother (or, as I would like/hope to be called "Nana"). The kids (my sweet daughter and sil) are still working on getting the nursery ready and the baby shower will be in two weeks. Can't wait to show you all the craft projects that I have been working on and the shower - but that will be another post in the future.
I seem to be straying off topic today - maybe that is my SOT syndrome (Straying Off Topic) kicking in -
Focus Carol, Focus!
This Weeks Menu:
Monday, April 2 - Pork Chops w/Rice; Green Beans
Tuesday, April 3 - Chicken Alfredo; Pasta; Salad
Wednesday, April 4 - Skillet Macaroni & Beef
Thursday, April 5 - Steak & Pepper Fajitas; Black Beans
Friday, April 6 - MOVIE NIGHT - Homemade Pizza
Saturday, April 7 - Chef's Choice
Sunday, April 8 - Chicken & Yellow Rice; Salad
Now, I will give you a spoiler alert - I'm not on "menu" already. Mountain Man decided yesterday that he wanted smoked Bar-B-Que chicken tonight - so that is what we are having. After all, sometimes you just have to go with what the hubby wants (and IF he is cooking it - who's to argue, right?).
So, how did you do last week? Where you able to stay with the plan or did you get off schedule too? If you did, why? What is on your plan for the week- leave me a note or a link to your blog - I would love to see what's cooking at your house!
Well, I hope that you all have a good week - and remember that the name of the game is flexibility!
