Menu Plan Monday

How about this for a menu plan…

Monday - I don’t know

Tuesday – I don’t know

Wednesday – I don’t know

Thursday – I don’t know

Friday – I don’t know

Saturday – Easter Dinner with Family

Sunday - Easter Lunch/Dinner with Family

No I have not lost my mind! I am trying to regroup from being away this weekend…and I haven’t figured out the plan…YET!  But I will…I have a few more recipes from friends to share this week while I get my act back together.

I love this weeks menu that you have planned. It looks like mine does every week. I try to keep pantry and fridge loaded with things I can throw together quickly. It gives me some flexability when I am not feeling well. (I have a chronic disability) So when I see others who generally have this part of organization down to a science look like mine does, I don’t feel so lame. :->

Not that I don’t love your normal content, but this might be the most encouraging post I’ve seen here! Thanks for the Monday morning laugh. I’m sooo there with you this week!

Keeping it real! We all have THOSE weeks!

LOVE IT!! That is my plan all too often! Thank you for letting us know we are not alone!

I’m laughing with you, not at you! :) I always feel like the weeks leading up to holidays are tough to plan for… you don’t want your fridge to be so crammed full of leftovers that there’s no room for the holiday grub, but you also don’t want to find yourself with nothing to eat come next Monday! So far, I have fried chicken, quesadillas, and probably hamburgers on the grill on my menu this week… but I’m still missing a couple of days. :) Maybe a breakfast-for-dinner one night?

Thanks for the laugh this morning. :)


Beth March 29, 2010 at 10:22 am

LOL! I’m still working on my menu, too. Glad to know I’m not the only one who can’t always get it together by Monday morning!


Jen @ After The Alter March 29, 2010 at 11:30 am

Sounds like a menu plan I would come up with !!! ;)


Evelyn Cox March 29, 2010 at 12:15 pm

lol, that menu plan looks SO familiar. I just don’t know where I’ve seen it before…:-)

yeah!! you are human too. love the meal plan soooo much. it made my day to open up my computer and laugh that hard!! thanks


Larissa March 29, 2010 at 3:02 pm

well, I guess I’ll have to look at archived recipes for tonight. :) I don’t usually meal plan but when things look yummy on your blog (and they usually do) I make them for dinner. Maybe it’ll be a night to break out a tub of frozen soup.

Love the honesty…I’ve got a list of meals, just not assigned to days yet. I best get moving on it otherwise I’ll catch myself paralyzed with fear for not having things in order later this week. I just returned to my part-time work after 4.5 months on bedrest, having a new baby spend some time in the NICU, and 2 & 4 year old boys at home. Plans are necessary for our home to function, but I sometimes start out the week just like yours. Have a great week :)


Jenny March 29, 2010 at 5:20 pm

Your not the only one with out a plan. To think that Easter is almost here, I have no plan at all. Guess I better get to it.


Jennifer March 29, 2010 at 8:39 pm

I love your plan!!! : ) I was cracking up at the computer when I saw it, I tried to explain it to my husband but he just shook his head. : )

A friend and I did freezer sessions, cooking meals for the freezer. We would spend wonderful time together chopping, cooking, laughing, and wrapping. I noticed as she was marking her food to go in the freezer, she marked some ,whatever, some ,I don’t care, and some ,i don’t know. Being curious, I asked what that was all about when the meals were lasagna, caserole type dishes, and taco meat. She said this way she had whatever her husband wanted for dinner, which usually amounted to: I don’t know, I don’t care and whatever.
Was an interesting solution to an age old problem of what’s for dinner.


Michaela March 29, 2010 at 9:16 pm

ps i have to add that this was the same friend who taught me to wrap the girl scout cookies in butcher paper and marke them liver.

Stop copying my menu plan! LOL That’s what mine looks like for about 3 days and then I just pick eenie-meanie-miney-mo.

Always ask the question what do you recommend that we eat for…..
Sometimes I answer I recommend I get in the kitchen and make us something!
