Menu Plan 9•20

I joke about how David and my menu plan are the two only things I can commit to in life.  But I have a small confession, I have cheated on my menu plan one to many times the last few months and it is time to get my self right with Cheesus. Y'all its hard.  I guess David is my only commitment after all.  Not that hes complaining.  HA!   I really do love that man!  But today let's talk about food!

Hope Whispers Menu Plan

But its a new week.  And here I am with yet another menu plan that hopefully will go as planned.  The guys picked out their dinners.  I added a few in for me.  I also plan on eating a few dinners with them by swapping out a few things.  This seems to be the easiest way to make make things work.  I have always said I will not be a short order cook.  I make one meal at dinner not something for everyone.  And here I am making my own separate dinners.  Le Sigh.  Trying to make it all work has been a struggle.  And if I don't make something for myself, I just end up not eating.  And then when we are getting in bed, David will be like "Wait, what did you eat for dinner?"  And I pretend to be sleeping but it never works.  So.  This week I will eat dinner all week and I will be tracking my food as well.

Menu Plan 9•6•21

New week, new menu.  Anyone else get all sorts of lost when holidays fall on a Monday.  Like, do we have to go with the usual routine or can we just take the day off?  Le sigh.  If only it was that easy right?  I will say that I have milked about all the rest I could out of this weekend and I finally ended up getting out of the comfy bubble that is my bed and joined the living.  Even left the house to get stuff to make dinner.  No one was liking my hot pockets for dinner suggestion.  Yeah, thats how checked out I was earlier.  We ended up grabbing things to make burgers instead.  Impossible burgers for me and probably Anthony too.  He ate mine last time and didn't even know until I realized it was gone.  I should have figured it out when he said it was more "meatloafy" that usual.

So since I was running on energy saving mode pretty much all weekend, I have to admit that I have yet to order groceries or even have any sort of menu planned.  It happens.  I do have a few ideas and thankfully the freezer is pretty full of meat options.   So I can pretty much figure it all out as I type.  Let's see how that works out for me.

Life Update

I kinda feel like Im falling behind here.  Its been quiet around here for way to long and I need to just jump back in and get back to it.  And probably share something other than a damned menu.  I have been more active on IG but even there, I have been laying low and trying to process life.  Lots of things here.

So let me tell you a little story and catch everyone up with the craziness I am so lucky to call life.  Most of it I have shared over the weeks but there are a few pieces of the puzzle to plug in.  So let's see.

Menu Plan 8•23

You guys.  Eating healthy is hard.  Ok not really hard but its hard when eating for you health means trying to listen to multiple doctors different restrictions.  The struggle is real.  Sigh.  I know I should be thankful for the health I have, and I am but damn if it sucks sometimes.  Its a challenge and something to overcome.  Thats what I keep telling myself anyways.  I got this!

Hope Whispers Menu Plan

This weeks menu was a collective effort.  I love the weeks when everyone puts in their suggestions and helps me plan the menu.  Its so much easier than trying to figure it all out myself.  Especially when 1, I have zero appetite and 2, Im not going to be eating any of it anyways.  So Im glad they all pitched in. 

Want to see what they chose?  Here is this weeks menu!

Menu Plan 8•16•21

Happy Monday! 

I heard someone the other day say something about wanting school to start up again so she could get more things done, but I kinda feel like things just keep getting crazier.  When does it let up?  Is this really what its like to be an adult.  Always saying "OK after this, things will calm down."  Like every week?   Le sigh.

Hope Whispers Menu Plan

We are one week into school and our routine is slowly figuring itself out.  The early wake ups.  Busses, bells and class schedules.  Trying to work around the boys getting home and having dinner ready at a decent time.  Thankfully David is around to pick them up so I can do my thing in the kitchen.  Last Friday, I may have fallen asleep when he left and slept until dinner time.  My bad!  This week I have planned a quick and easy menu that should help things run smoother than last week.

Planning, Playing and Pool time

The weekends are just not long enough.  The weeks go by fast enough!  And Im starting to fee a little rushed here.  Le sigh.  I guess I can't life this vacation life forever.  NO?  Okay fine.  At least I have one week left before it all hits the fan.  I will try to just enjoy it while I can.

This week we a healthy balance of chilling on the couch and getting things done.  A little work and little play.  I like it when weeks balance themselves out like that but then this weekend we just kinda had so much fun time disappeared. But it full of so many fun and happy moments that we will remember always.  Thats what really matters.  What made you happy this week?  Here are a few things that made me smile.
