Monday Menu

Well, last week did not go as well as I had hoped.  I was right on target Monday night fixing the Jambalaya.  Tuesday I got everything ready for the Asian Chicken and asked Mountain Man to put everything together and turn it on around noon.  Well, that was NOT a good idea - to make a long story short, however it was somewhat funny, the Asian Chicken was not edible.  It might have had something to with the half of a container of peppercorns that was dropped into the pot, and all over the kitchen.  Anyway - that started the downward turn.  The rest of the week was just hit and miss.  So, I will pick myself up and get back on target this week.

I know that it doesn't seem as though I stay with the menu very much - but I was really doing a pretty good job until I started working.  I'll get it back together - this just shows that everyone has trouble occasionally.   You just have to take it one step at a time and, if something happens and you don't fix what you had planned, just get back "with the program" as soon as you can.  Remember - stuff happens - that's life.  Don't sweat the small stuff.

That said - what is the plan for this week - I think it just might be something I can stick with.

Monday, May 7 - Black Beans & Rice w/ Sausage
Tuesday, May 8 - Chicken Burritos, Spanish Rice, Refried Beans
Wednesday, May 9 - Spaghetti, Salad, Garlic Bread
Thursday, May 10 - Not sure 
(it's my birthday - so we might go out or Mountain Man might cook)
Friday, May 11 - Movie Night, Pizza
Saturday, May 12 - Chef's Choice
Sunday, May 13 - Mother's Day - Grilled Chicken, Corn on the Cob, Tossed Salad

Next week has a few special things happening -  my birthday on Thursday and then Mother's Day on Sunday.  We might eat at home on Thursday night then eat out in Sebring on Saturday night for my birthday dinner.  Then Sunday we might will have everyone over to the house (meaning the kids and my mom) and just grill out - something simple and easy.  I think that will probably be the plan.

Hope that you all have a great week.

I'll see you Wednesday with a little update.

  1. I'm sure you'll do just fine. To keep it real like you do: I don't even get around to do up the plan, which is bad enough. Should know better in order to avoid the dreaded "what's for dinner?".
    Have a great week,

    1. Thanks Sue - I try to "keep it real" around here. I certainly don't 'put on airs' if you know what I mean! I really do try hard to stay with the plan - but sometimes life just gets in the way. You just have to stay flexible! (I'm so flexible you could tie me in knots!)

  2. Can I come to dinner tonight? Sounds delish!

    We are having spaghetti on Wednesday too :)

    1. Would love to have you for dinner anytime! Come on over!
