I'm not going to lie, it's been a trying week. Physical and mental exhaustion combined with a 16 month old who just can't seem to be well at all during the winter have reduced me to some sort of sub-human species unable to control what she eats, her temper, or her general outlook on life. I am determined to crawl out from under this rock and recenter, organize, get back to my sewing machine where life seems to work itself out, get back on the elliptical where my butt seems to work itself out and just get back to myself in general.
Not a crafty conversation but that's some real conversation for ya.
And so, with my optimism cup refilled here is my menu plan for this week:
Monday - Chicken fingers, mashed potatoes, green beans, gravy (didn't eat this last week as planned)
Tuesday - Pasta with mushroom alfredo
Wednesday - sausage, rice, peppers and onions
Thursday - sandwiches and soup
Friday - chicken tacos
Saturday - pizza (homemade)
Sunday - hamburgers and fries
After evaluating last week's meal plan I was sort of horrified by the thought of having red meat four times in a week. Now I've resolved to cut that back to once a week and start working meatless options into the rotation at least once every week, hopefully twice. Unfortunately while the boys and I love beans, Drew is not a fan. So if you have any meatless ideas that don't involve beans I could really use some!
