Menu Challenge Monday – November 11 (A Tuesday Edition)

Sorry this is a day late. We ended up having to take the little ones to urgent care last night as both have pink eye and today they’ve been sick with cold/flu symptoms. It’s been a rather crazy busy weekend and start to the week.

I have to admit I am pretty ashamed to even post this week. In my defense though, I was sick for several days. Not REALLY sick, but the no energy and weak, achy feeling kind of sick. I failed big time this past week. I guess I can look at it as there is only room for improvement, right!?  Ugh.

Last week…

Monday: Eat Out – I have to work late…my work schedule is crazy between now and the end of the year so some nights I don’t really have a choice but to get something super quick. – This happened. I didn’t cook.

Tuesday: Chicken & Noodles – This did not happen because I forgot to get the chicken out of the freezer before I left for work. I ended up cooking smoked sausage with noodles, peppers and onions. It actually turned out decent. 😉 We’ll count this as a success since I cooked. lol 

Wednesday: Left overs from Tuesday – Well, we had no left overs but I did cook chicken and noodles! woohoo!!! Success.

Thursday: Lasagna Roll Ups – Here ends my successes for the week. This did not happen and we ate out. #Fail

Friday: Eat out – This did happen.

Saturday: Roast with Potatoes, Carrots and Mushrooms – This did not happen. I was craving pizza so we ordered pizza. #Fail

Sunday: Left overs from Saturday- This did not happen. We didn’t have left overs and Sunday seemed to fly by…before we knew it, it was getting late and we needed to eat so we went out for subs. 🙁 #Fail

So yea…we did really bad this week. Two meals in..that’s all. Whoa.

Here’s the plan for this week:

Monday: Since it’s Tuesday when I am writing this, I’ll admit it was a failure. I had planned on Lasagna Roll Ups but when we got home from work we noticed the kids had pink eye. We had to get them something to eat and take them to urgent care to get medicine. There was no time to cook. 🙁

Tuesday: Lasagna Roll Ups (still have the ingredients since I planned on this last week)

Wednesday: Chicken and Biscuit Casserole

Thursday: Eat out – we are going to the circus so I am pretty sure there won’t be time to cook and eat. We’ll use this as our eat out day this week.

Friday: Homemade Sloppy Joe Sandwiches, Cole Slaw and tator tots

Saturday: Frozen Pizza and Cole Slaw

Sunday: Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, Corn and Biscuits

I am again hoping this will be a better week.

Do you meal plan? What’s the hardest part in keeping to the menu for you? Do you have as many issues as I do?
