Looking over the list of what I had planned vs. what I actually made means I cooked about half of what I thought I might. Even though eating out was not cooking, it was technically a planned meal! That makes me slightly over 50%
We are headed to the beach at the end of the week and I am making zero plans for then. Who knows what will happen. I am just looking forward to being in Paradise, the salt air, the sun, the water, and some delicious food.
No way I will actually eat a burger at the beach. Scallops, grouper, and snapper all day!
What was supposed to happen:
Hamburgers with fixings, chips or keto cheese curls (not particularly good but crunchy)
Chicken divan, cucumber onion and tomato salad
Veggie meal TBD
Greek chicken, greek green beans, tomato slices
Grilled steak, tossed salad, dinner rolls or keto rolls
Take out or dining out
What did happen:
Monday: We worked outside again and were hot, tired and dirty. After we got nicely cleaned up and looked somewhat human again, we decided to give ourselves a bit of grace and just order some take out BBQ .
Chopped pork, baked beans or coleslaw
Tuesday: After the long weekend, TheHub went back to work and I worked around the house. We decided to go to Costco at about 7 and had not eaten. We always seem to find the simplest solution to dinner when it gets late.
Pimento cheese sandwiches or pimento cheese stuffed celery.
Wednesday: Got rid of some items from the freezer. Yay!
Chicken divan, coleslaw
Thursday: Oh no! I found some cooked ground chuck in the fridge I had forgotten about, and had to use it immediately
Open face Vesuvian (My sister's somewhat made up concoction of ground beef, onions, peppers and mushrooms on garlic toast), green beans
Friday: My SIL came to spend the night and we went out to dinner
Out to eat, wedge Salad or flatbreads
Saturday: We went to the produce stand so it was only natural to have a veggie dinner.
Veggie Dinner, squash, okra, cornbread, sliced tomatoes
Sunday: Perfect weather means it is the perfect time for a cookout.
Hamburgers and all the fixings, corn on the cob (or none)
What might happen:
1. Stuffed bell peppers, new potatoes, coleslaw
2. Chicken, rice, green beans, mixed greens
3. Taco salad
4. Toasted cheese, tomato and onion sandwiches, mixed greens
5. Grilled steak, potatoes, tossed salad
6. Beach meal (no idea yet)
7. Beach meal (no idea yet)
Have a great week staying on plan, going off plan, or with no plan at all.
