Menu Plan Monday
Can I go off on a tangent right quick about the laundry? I used to be SO smug about my laundry skillZ. My blog friends would bitch about how they always have mounds and mounds of either clean or dirty laundry, waiting to be washed or put away, and I'd be all like "those losers, I do my laundry every day and hang it up THAT NIGHT and I'm the winner and everyone else sucks and LOOK AT ME!!!" Well out of nowhere (not out of 'nowhere', out of 'moving across the globe for the second time in twenty months' but whatever) I can't keep up anymore. I still wash a load every day, but now, instead of hanging it up, I just pile it in my bedroom and ignore it.
I blame the fact that Ava gets home from school almost as soon as I put the boys down for a nap, so I don't really have any 'sit in front of the tv and fold clothes in peace' time. And my washer is upstairs, which apparently everyone else on the planet LOVES, but I am HATING it. Because I used to always fold clothes while I watch tv in peace!!!
Anyway. Not the point. The point is the menu. Baby steps.
We're doing new recipes almost every night, except Thursday. Nick wanted his favorite. I'm just sick of all my regulars. Well that's not true, I want to have PW's meatballs, but I don't want to MAKE them. So there's that. Anyway.
Monday: Filipino BBQ skewers with cilantro lime rice
Tuesday: Chicken Fajitas
Wednesday: Duty Day- eat out or breakfast
Thursday: spicy fatboy sausage pasta. Only not spicy. And not very fat because we use turkey sausage and fat free evaporated milk instead of heavy cream. Nick will be in charge of this, coincidently, because he always wants to make it when it's on the menu, and I have weight watchers. I didn't even plan it this way. Life is so awesome.
Friday: Thai Steak Tacos or something I have yet to figure out.
Saturday: something I have year to figure out, or Thai Steak Tacos.
Sunday: Chicken and Dumplings. I've never made this, and I'm currently on the hunt for an easy recipe, so if you know one, drop me a line. Do people still say drop me a line? I think so.
