Menu Plan Monday
Did you miss knowing what we eat every night? I've missed writing about it. During my blog-absence I did write weekly menus but in the last couple of weeks I've just gotten out of the habit and it shows. We have weird, mis-matching food stuff around the house. Enough to make a feast but not the right foods to make a dinner. Know what I mean? Enough of that. I'm back to what works for me. Menu planning.
Here's what we're having.
Tonight, for Mother's Day we're having Carolyn Kebabs per my request. yum!!
Monday: Tacos, salad, rice
Tuesday: chicken, roasted broccoli, noodles, alfredo sauce
Wednesday: Fried chicken, salad, french fries, cauliflower
Friday: breakfast for dinner
Saturday: Spaghetti with meat sauce, garlic bread, salad
Sunday: burgers and fries.
The tricky part about menu planning these days is that I'm not able to eat "processed carbs" in the way of bread, noodles, taco shells, french fries, or really even rice. All of our dinners need to be complete with and without the starchy component. The good news is: when I eliminate those starches I feel amazing. It's worth the expense and effort to keep those out of my system.
