Menu Plan Monday

Well, spring break is over, Grandpa Kenny and Uncle Matt are gone, I'm on my own during the days once again.  Gag me.  Back to the grind.  And to say I have a case of the Mondays would be a HUGE understatement.  So instead of doing anything productive (like washing the bath mat that my boys have apparently peed ALL OVER) I decided to menu plan and blog.  And play on pinterest.  And Facebook stalk this girl who dresses and poses for self pics with her phone like she maybe thinks she's WAAAAY cuter than she really is.  It's sort of an obsession.

If we happen to be Facebook friends, I'm TOTALLY not talking about you.  This girl doesn't read my blog.  Seriously.  Although if you are taking pics of yourself with your phone and making weird faces...we might need to talk.

Anyway.  Here's my menu.  Doubt I'll stick to it because I'm not in the mood to cook...

Monday: we have gymnastics till five thirty, so from now on, Mondays will be crockpot days.  Tonight, I picked up this yummy looking chicken alfredo bake from Costco (or is it Cosco, no T?) and we're going to just heat that sucker up.  Wish I had a salad to go with it.  I gained three pounds while they were here.  But more on that later.

Tuesday: chicken taquitos.  I pinned this months ago, and I'm finally going to just do it already.  I also got a seven layer dip from Costco (or Cosco) and I plan on tearing that mother up.  About those three pounds...

Wednesday: fish tacos.  Nick doesn't have duty (HOORAY!!) so he just has to pick one of the many recipes I've pinned...and then make it.  Easy peasy.  For me.

Thursday: I have weight watchers, so spaghetti and meat sauce in the crockpot.  I tore out a recipe for semi homemade meat sauce in the Good Housekeeping so I might try that.  Or I might throw a jar of Prego in the crockpot with some hamburger.  OR I might pick up a fancy sauce at Whole Foods tomorrow...hmmm...

Friday: HUNGER GAMES!!!! Kids are on their own, I'm leaving at five.  So leftover spaghetti anyone? And probably PF Chang's for me and Nick.  Seriously, no idea how I gained three pounds.  It's weird!

And I don't plan on weekends anymore.  Just don't feel like it.

  1. So jealous you have a Whole Foods! The co-cop below the yoga studio I did teacher training at in NC was like a mini WF...I wanted to pack it up and take it back with me! I'm with you on busyness and not wanting to cook. I had no idea when I started adding things to my plate just how heavy the days would get...and we only have TWO kids! Must check out this site you linked, need all the help I can find.
