Meal Plan for the Week of June 23, 2018

You may have noticed I didn’t post a Meal Plan last week, and for that I apologize.  There were two reasons: 1) I created a Meal Plan knowing I was developing a cold, and promptly went to bed for about a week, and 2) when I finally got up and around my laptop had decided to stop recognizing that the Internet is a thing and wouldn’t acknowledge it, so even though I wanted to post, I couldn’t.  As a result of the first issue, even though I had developed the Plan with my impending sickness in mind and therefore easy-to-make meals, it didn’t get followed.  Those boys ate whatever they felt like making (cereal and sandwiches, I’m guessing).  As for the second reason, after a good 6 hours of playing and searching for the issue with the laptop, my husband found the problem and was able to rectify it.  This week we are repeating last week’s Lost Meal Plan, since it was a good one, and every now and then you want easy.

Meal Plan for the Week of May 12, 2018

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms following the blog!  This weekend I am celebrating on Saturday and Sunday with two things I love that just don’t go on sale very often but are this week: rack of lamb and lobster.  I’m not bothered about being taken out for dinner.  We can eat well at home and enjoy the nice weather in the backyard.  Wednesday night I’m babysitting for friends so they can go out and enjoy a birthday dinner and a movie, so as has become traditional, the boys have pizza when I’m out.  Finally, Friday is my husband’s birthday, so he gets to choose dinner.  Since every time I ask him what he wants for dinner he says “Burritos”, it’s no surprise to me that we are having burritos.
