Menu Challenge Monday – November 25

I think I did much better this past week in terms of not eating out as much. I’m also super excited about the meal planning this week because there isn’t much of it with the holiday! That means less thinking, planning, shopping and cooking! I get a legitimate lazy week! haha!

Last week…

Monday: It’s after dinner Monday so I can admit again that we didn’t cook. #Fail – admitting last week this was a fail.

Tuesday: Chili – #Fail….well, in a way. My back started hurting REALLY bad last week and I couldn’t stand up long enough to cook. We DID eat at home though but it was just stuff like cereal for hubby and I and mac n cheese, corn, banana and crackers for the kids. 🙂 

Wednesday: Left overs- Needless to say, we didn’t have leftovers. We did the same as Tuesday, ate quick and easy at home. 

Thursday: Chicken Pot Pie – #Fail – again, my back had not eased up so I couldn’t stand and cook. It was another eat at home quick and easy night. 

Friday: Eat out night! – This happened.

Saturday: Hoping to have a family movie night so something in but quick and easy…possible a frozen pizza night!? — This did not happen. I cooked the Chicken Pot Pie planned for earlier this week. It was yum-o! I look cooking chicken pot pie because the kids actually eat all of the veggies in it! Woohoo!

Sunday: I’m not sure yet and I can’t think because I’m too tired. I will update later this week when I decide. It’s an eat IN day though for sure! 😉 – #Fail We ate out. 🙁  I did cook, but my preggo cravings won and because I really didn’t want what I cooked.

So really, we only ate out two extra days this week. I think that’s a better outcome than in the past few weeks!

Here’s the plan for this week:

Monday: Crock Pot Roast

Tuesday: Leftover Crock Pot Roast

Wednesday: Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki

Thursday: THANKSGIVING DAY!!!! Eat with family, no cooking for me! 😉  Happy Thanksgiving to you all!! 

Friday: Eat out day – traditionally we eat out at my favorite Chinese restaurant the day after Thanksgiving! I’m excited!

Saturday: Another family Thanksgiving!! WooHoo!!!

Sunday: Left Overs

This week should be pretty easy to stick to…now to start planning for next week’s menu. It’s going to be hard to get back into it! haha!

How do the holidays affect your meal plans?
