Weekly Menu

So, the truth.  We've ate out a lot this past week - some planned; some not.  It started last Friday where my husband understand what a busy day I had and stopped to pick up some Fish and Chips at  a Fry Food take out place.  Saturday we ate at church; Sunday we ate out for Darryl's birthday; Monday night we ate out at after Gymnastics and Tuesday we grabbed fast food inbetween picking the truck up at the shop and running some errands.  Wednesday night I made dinner but Darryl didn't get home until almost 9:00 so he had already eaten.  Thursday night we ordered pizza thanks to a great promo from the local pizza place.  Get this - I cooked on Friday.  The chicken was raw so we couldn't eat it OR the veggies I had roasted in the same pan and then placed the raw, bloody chicken on top of.  I have no idea why it didn't cook either - it was in the oven at a high temp and I cooked it 15 minutes longer than the recipe called for UUUGG!

It gets better, I went to the grocery store on Friday but as I was driving I realized that I did not really look at the calendar before writing the menu/grocery list.  For one, I had planned corn dogs for Monday but realized we ate them for lunch on Thursday when everyone was home with a snow day.  I also forgot that we have a field trip on Tuesday AND I have a meeting that evening so I really need a crock pot meal.  Needless to say, I crossed off half the list and only bought what I need for Saturday and Sunday; I'll regroup based on what is in the freezer/cupboards and make a second run to the store on Sunday.  Or maybe we'll just eat out all week again ;-) HA!

Saturday - Today is a family birthday party so I just have to supply some party food - nothing big.  Keeping it simple.  I'm in charge of the cake and then I'm going to bring some Mexican Dip/Chips too.

Sunday - Lunch at church today so I'm just supplying green beans and a salad.  I'm not sure what we'll do for dinner. 

Monday-Friday - right now, I have no idea.  Some weeks!
