Monday Menu







Good morning everyone!  I explained earlier why my posts have not been as consistent as they had been, but I'm going to try and get better.  Let's start by getting back on track with the menu post!


I will readily admit that I did NOT do well on the menu this week - with it being my first week back at work (and Mountain Man didn't help this week) we did not eat off the menu much at all.  I think we ate out three days - had hot dogs one night and a frozen dinner the other.  There were a couple of days that we had to go into town to get things for the shower and Friday afternoon I was at the Town Hall (where we had the shower) until after eight getting everything decorated - so, no dinner at home.  Saturday night we ate left overs from the shower and Sunday was more left overs (after the birthday lunch).  Let's see IF I can get back on track this week, with planning a little better, and knowing that I'm tired when I get home from work.  


So, what's on the menu for this week?


Monday, April 23 - Ham Steak, Mac & Cheese, Green Beans, Biscuits
Tuesday, April 24 - Chicken Italiano, Pasta, Salad
Wednesday, April 25 - Southwest Taco Pie
Thursday, April 26 - Steak & Rice
Friday, April 27 - Movie Night - Pizza (don't know about homemade)
Saturday, April 28 - Chef's Choice
Sunday, April 29 - Country Ribs, Potato Salad, Baked Beans

I'll be honest right off the bat - I'm not sure about two meals here.  I guess I'll have to see how things go - but I may be changing things up on Tuesday and Wednesday - but we shall see.

So, how have you done on your family menu plan?  I know that many of you work full time and have families, so you don't know why I should be complaining when it is just MM and I - and I will get better as the weeks go by.  Stick with me and see how well I do.

I hope you guys have a fabulous week!

Hugs -

Carol

  1. I'm sure you will get used to working full time again, it is a big change when it comes to all the household "stuff" and only MM around to help. At least I get to delegate it to more people (for now, will change after the summer).
    Have a great week,
    Sue

    1. Thanks Sue for the great comment - yep, it's going to take some getting used to for MM and me, but it's only for six weeks - I think we will survive, even if we do get off the menu sometimes!
      You have a great week too!

  2. I love that you plan out your dinner menu. I need to start doing that. I wake up every morning stumped on what's for dinner that night.

    1. Theresa - I love my menu plan - I only have to think about "what's for dinner" one day a month (since I really do a monthly plan, I just post it one week at at time!). All I have to do is look at the calendar and pull what I need out of the freezer in the morning - with me working now, I'm thinking about pulling a couple of days out on Sunday, so I don't forget! LOL.
      Have a super week -

    1. Hi Lindsey - Thanks for joining the craziness that goes on here at Are We There Yet - Mountain Man says that everyday is an adventure, and he sure does make it that way! BTW - making a plan isn't that difficult, it just takes a few minutes once a month! Believe me, IF I can do it ANYONE can do it!
