Menu Plan Monday
Well, so far, today has been half suck and half totally AWESOMESAUCE.
Sucky? I spent ninety minutes and four hundred dollars at the commissary. Awesome? When I was leaving, the preschool we signed up for back in September, the one who told me Scott was first on the list but that they didn't think anyone was leaving any time soon, called and said he can start as soon as I finish the paperwork!!!
Sucky? We were pretty late to Ava's first day and I found out that when I pick her up in the afternoons, she can't just head for the carpool line. I have to unload everyone and walk in and get her. After I find a parking spot. Awesome? I think I might be able to work it out with my friend Laura to take her kids and she'll take care of pickups!!!
Sucky? Those groceries are all over the table and counters. I don't feel like putting them away. Awesome? Uh, I'm blogging instead of putting away groceries.
Sigh. Anyway. I plan on going thru at least a few pictures tonight, so hopefully my next post won't be so...picture-less.
Here's my menu for the week. It's time to try and start feeling a little more settled here. Apparently, that means we need to stop living at the Panda Express. We'll see how long that lasts.
Monday: taco cups. I'll post the link if they're any good. In other news, I'll be making this with leftover taco soup. Doesn't that seem economical? You're supposed to brown meat and taco seasoning and beans and all that...but I'm using taco soup. I am!
Tuesday: chicken lo mein. Trying to wean ourselves off Panda Express. I have a feeling that home made lo mein is NOT going to cut it as methadone.
Thursday: beef and broccoli. And noodles I guess, since my damn rice cooker is in my express shipment.
Friday: we're either meeting Jen at Chuck E Cheese, or ordering Papa John's. Or driving thru the Panda Express. WHATEVER.
Saturday: fish and tortellini. Because we can't have rice.
Sunday: grilled chicken leg quarters. And not rice.
What's on your menu this week?
