I was really not in the mood over the weekend to menu plan. We had a couple of unexpected expenses pop up last week and our grocery budget suffered. We’ve got plenty, but I wasn’t really up for an “eat from our pantry/freezer” challenge quite yet.
So, here’s what I came up with for this week. Not bad stuff, we’re actually having some of our favorites in spite of my unpreparedness.
Breakfast for dinner, eggs with fried potatoes and fruit.
Beef stew with Kate’s pull-apart rolls and leftover green salad.
Corn-flake and parmasan crusted chicken with carrots and mashed potatoes.
Cheese enchiladas and rice.
Our last box of Hamburger Helper which traveled from our California pantry to Alabama.
BBQ chicken, corn on the cob, and Pioneer Woman’s crash hot potatoes.
TBD. I have absolutely nothing planned for Sunday.
The fabulous dinner I had planned for the weekend before last when we thought friends were coming to dinner wound up being turned into a basic family meal because Jason never actually confirmed the plans with his work buddy. Major oops on his part. Well, he’s re-upped the invitation and this weekend is a possibility.
