A Non-Plan

 There was no point in planning our meals  last week. TheHub was supposed to be gone for 3 nights, and I had planned on doing no cooking at all at that time. A bowl of cereal or some popcorn is perfectly fine for a dinner by myself. 

What actually happened (instead of cooking)

Sunday and Monday: Sunday I ate a bowl of cereal, Monday a tomato sandwich

Tuesday: TheHub came home early. I had nothing thawed, so we went out to eat instead.
Wednesday: He wanted to go out Wednesday night also. 

Thursday: I did actually cook veggies, only because we were covered up with okra and it had to be 
Squash, okra, green beans

 Friday: This was the Hocus Pocus party with a hot dog themed dinner.
Dogs with all the fixings, chips, baked beans, cupcakes

Saturday: I did not feel well while we watched ball games all day (or TheHub watched while I slept on the couch off and on). Instead of cooking we grabbed some tacos.

Sunday: The day was beautiful, perfect for grilling, but I still did not feel great. TheHub and I split a steak, mashed potatoes, and tossed salad. 

I am not really planning much for this week either. I will be having some blog guests arriving Thursday night then we are leaving for the beach on Saturday. Whatever happens then just happens and will have no plan. So that only leaves me three dinners to actually plan, plus one crockpot dinner (possibly chili, but that is weather dependent).

Somewhat planned for this week:

1. Sloppy Joe's, coleslaw, corn on the cob
2. Chicken broccoli casserole, sliced tomatoes and cucumbers
3. Veggie dinner TBD later.
4. Some crockpot meal TBD later

That's all folks!

Have a great week staying on plan, going off plan, or with no plan at all!


  1. You know, one of my very favorite dinners is a bowl of cereal. Have a cozy afternoon!

  2. I hope you are feeling much better now.
    I am MUCH more likely to have a bowl of cereal at night than I am in the morning. Enjoy your guests and your time at the beach.

  3. Hope you are feeling better, Anne.
    There are some weeks when minimal planning works just fine. :)

  4. Not a very exciting week, but I hope by now that you are feeling better, Anne.

  5. Hope you're feeling better! And, that you have a fabulous time with the fellow bloggers. Sounds lovely.

  6. Hope you've gotten past what ailed you. Enjoy your company this week!

  10. Cereal for dinner cannot be beat some nights!

  11. Sometimes no plan is the best plan! I am also team cereal for dinner! I hope you have a great weekend with friends! : )

  12. I'm very partial to a toasted sandwich if I can't be bothered with dinner and cereal for dessert.
    I hope you're feeling better and have a wonderful time with friends :)

  13. Roll Tide… whew! I had heartburn… lol. Cindy in the South
