Menu Plan with Whine List

This week's menu plan is based on 2 goals: keep it simple and eat from what we have in the pantry/ freezer.

Monday: Broiled Lemon Pepper Salmon, Steamed Carrots & Broccoli, Rice

Tuesday: Balsamic Chicken, Carrots, Broccoli, Onions, Rice

Wednesday: Seafood Chowder, Cheddar Bread

Thursday: BBQ Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Corn, Green Beans

Friday: Spaghetti, Green Beans, Corn, Cheddar Bread

Saturday: Unknown. :)

Sunday: (Lunch) Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches, (Supper) Pancakes & Sausage

Monday: Burgers, Hot Dogs, Popcorn, Cake, Ice Cream

That's my meal plan for the week. Here's my whine list of reasons why I need simple meals this week:
  1. Joel will be in a training class at work each day this week - translation - I don't know what time he'll be home each night. Might be early. Might be late.
  2. Will has decided cowboys are out and baseball is in so I need to rethink (and buy supplies for!) his party. It's small with only us and 2 invited families so it's not a big deal to re-plan at the last minute.
  3. I need to CLEAN my house for the party. I also need to clean my basement playroom in case it rains and we need to move the party indoors.
  4. I have a home school group meeting Friday afternoon.
  5. I have a bridal shower to attend Sunday afternoon.
That's my plan for this week. What's YOUR plan?

PS. This week's Family Fun Friday will be about our recent visit to McCoy Stadium. Any guesses what they play there?

Looks like a good menu plan! Hoping Joel's training isn't too bad--and looking forward to reading about Pawsox and Will's party! Huh, I wonder if we can come up with anything baseball related to wear or bring? Don't worry, I am NOT bringing any bats! :)

I think these menu plan posts serve just to make the rest of us horribly jealous! =)

Yummy stuff!

Amy, Joel's training is for a new system he is helping to put in at work. He always likes learning new things so it shouldn't be too bad. Except he has to be in E. Providence by 9 am each morning. That means fighting through Providence city traffic. ugh!

Carrie, Seriously? Jealous? The recipes are super simple. Well, the truth is I don't use a recipe most of the time. I just dump stuff together until it looks or smells right. Sometimes the results are good. Sometimes they aren't. And the BBQ and Spaghetti sauce? First step in the recipe is "open the jar." lol

I have to menu plan. When I don't have a plan I'm a crazy woman. Which is what it's been like around here for the last couple of months. I'm trying really heard to get my sanity back!!!

Feel free to use my "plans." ;)
