This was a banner week for me. I actually stayed very close to what was planned, so yea me. In truth, I just did not want to go to the grocery store and I had everything planned for the week's menu on hand anyway. The substitutions I made were pretty small leaving something off or changing side items. (Except for swapping tacos for spaghetti) This week was the best!
1. Chicken yakisoba
2. Squash casserole, green beans, coleslaw, cornbread
3. Black and blue salad (had some leftover steak from Sunday's dinner)
4.Grilled hamburger patty, tossed salad saffron rice
5. Spaghetti w/ meat sauce, tossed salad
6. Out to eat or takeout
7 Grilled tuna, avocado rice, cucumber tomato onion salad
What we really ate:
Monday: Squash from the produce stand decided what the meal would be.
Squash casserole, coleslaw, cornbread
Tuesday: We still had leftover steak from Sunday's grill that I had planned to use
Black and blue salad, dinner rolls
Wednesday: Finally! Even better, when I did my pantry inventory recently I found a package of forgotten buckwheat soba noodles.
Chicken yakisoba (This dish was so veggie intense that it did not require salad or slaw. We even decided next time to leave the chicken out entirely)
Thursday: I had volunteered at IP and was just not feeling like cooking. TheHub never minds eating out or doing take out.
Zaxby's chicken tenders, coleslaw
Friday: Neither of us wanted a huge meal and I was happy to accommodate that, especially because there was seasoned taco beef in the freezer.
Tacos with lots of veggie fixings, coleslaw
Saturday: The plan was to grill the patties, but the weather decided otherwise
Hamburger patty, saffron rice, green beans
Sunday: Nothing like having a traditional Easter meal. 😁
Grilled tuna steaks, tossed salad, toast (I was lazy and the toast replaced the rice. Neither of us cared)
Next Up (Possibilities)
1. Spaghetti with meat sauce, salad
2. Veggie dinner (tbd based on what is available at the produce stand)
3. Tamale Pie (Using up the rest of the taco meat), tossed salad
4. Teriyaki chicken, rice, broccoli, coleslaw
5. Pulled pork, baked beans, caulitato salad
6. Out to eat or take out
7. Grilled steak, tossed salad
I guess I will see if I can keep the staying on plan trend going or not! No matter, we always eat!
Have a great week staying on plan, going off plan, or with no plan at all!
