This week meals almost echoed last week. I just had had no desire to cook and was not bothered that I had a bad case of the end of summer laziness.
What I thought might happen:
Smoked sausage skillet meal with peppers, onions, tomatoes and mushrooms
Grilled steak, baked potato, tossed salad
Veggie meal (depends on what the produce stand has when I go Tuesday)
Out to eat
Grilled chicken, caulitato salad, green beans
Some sandwich meal (TBD)
Cobb salad, with rolls
What really did:
Monday: I had already taken the sausage out of the freezer to thaw so I was committed to this meal. It also used vegetables that needed to be used pronto.
Smoked sausage skillet dinner with onions, peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes and potatoes
Tuesday: What can I say? Lazy man's dinner.
Bologna sandwich, coleslaw
Wednesday: I had planned to serve Cobb salad for dinner but that is what TheHub had for lunch. Glad I called him in time to punt. Then he reminded me we were going out for dinner to break up the week.
Out to eat at the new to us Halal place. Falafel, hummus, rice, cucumber salad
Thursday: I had been to Independence Place for a few hours, stopped for some light shopping, came home and wanted a quick dinner. This is one of the quickest meals I can make, especially with fresh scallops already in the fridge.
Sautéed scallops, baked potato, tossed salad
Friday: Date night with a little lightweight shopping and dinner
Out to eat Pita cafe, Racer and tabouli
Saturday: TheHub went to the football game. He and Son2 had a heavy lunch meal (meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans etc) and he was not particularly hungry. I was dinner apathetic so we had another lazy man's dinner.
Bologna sandwich with/without chips
Sunday: Best Sunday dinner in a while thanks to my butcher at ThePig who showed me the reduced for quick sale stash.
NY strip steak, baked potato, tossed salad
What's next? Uninspired this week which means this probably won't happen*
1. Veggie meal (TBD)
2. Grilled ham and Swiss sandwich, chopped cauliflower salad
3. BLT salad, dinner rolls
4. Stuffed bell peppers, mashed potatoes w/gravy, coleslaw
5. Out to eat
6. Pasta dish TBD, tossed salad
7. Grilled tuna steaks, coleslaw, dinner rolls
Have a great week staying on plan, going off plan or with no plan at all.
*Do I remotely care if the meal plan happens or not? Nope!
