Menu Plan Monday: August 5th

Its already past 11 pm and I am only now getting this up.  Its been one of those days.   We started the Fall Soccer season, I decided to be brave and signed up to co manage the team, its my birthday and I'm just might cry if I want to!  All jokes aside, its been a great day.

This week is like every other week this summer!  Quick and easy.  Its a short week as we head out on a road trip and vacation on Thursday.  And tonight I didn't feel like cooking so we grabbed some Whataburger on the way home from practice.  I felt horrible logging it into my calorie tracker, but according to my new fitbit that the hubby got me, I am still good on calories. I have to admit though, I never deny myself something I want.  I may eat smart all day and endulge at dinner.  Or have half of dessert.  Ok maybe not dessert, but you know what I mean. Everything in moderation!  That's the key.  So here is what we have going on this week!

Menu August 5th

Enchiladas are super easy.  And its the only day that I will have time to cook a whole meal.  The spaghetti sauce is frozen left overs from a few weeks ago. I always try to double the recipe and put some in the freezer for quick meals.  This comes in very handy on practice nights.  Dad taught me how to make chicken roll ups before he left for TTY the summer before 8th grade.  It was the only way my little brother and sister would eat bell peppers too. Same thing holds true for my boys now.

  1. Great idea doubling the recipe for the spaghetti sauce to freeze for a later meal. Have a nice vacation!

    1. Same thing goes for casseroles and any other sauces I can double and freeze. That way if you need something in a pinch you have a back up plan :) And thank you. Im so excited to actually get away for a little bit!

  2. Thats a great idea! I will have to use it! :) I cant wait to keep exploring your blog! New follower!
