Menu Plan 1•13•20

So, I'm popping in  day later than I usually do.  I usually have my menu ready to go on Sunday nights.  I also usually have my groceries by then too.  This week I had neither.  And Monday was just all sorts of busy.  If you happen to follow me on IG and caught a glimpse of my stories you know what I'm talking about.  I spend the morning at my appointments.  One which was a total fail.  Then I got home just in time to turn right back around and go with David to his appointment.  Got home in time to watch kids and then headed right back out to get groceries.   I got groceries put away and started dinner and before I knew it, I was in bed.  It's crazy that what seems like a normal day to many, just completely drains the life out of me.  My fellow spoonies get me. 

Sunday was Alex's birthday and David was unable to walk, so we pretty much stayed at home.  He played video games with his friends all day.  Then we ordered pizza and Grandma and Grandpa brought over cake and ice cream.  We all went to bed full of sugar.  I guess it was probably a good thing that I was unable to do my lab work for the transplant clinic.  I did manage to get my menu together before I went to bed.  I was feeling a little guilty for the birthday binge so we are sticking to a pretty simple menu this week. 

Buffalo Chicken Zucchini Boats

Asiago Peppercorn Pork Loin

Jalapeno Popper Chicken Breast

Sausage, Rice and Corn.


We ended up having the sausage yesterday because it was the quickest meal.  I think that's what makes it one of everyones favs.  While the rice cooks, sausage gets sliced and cooked.  Add some corn to the pan of sausage and cook through.  Then when the rice is done, mix it in and stir.  Sausage is not my friend so I had just a tiny bowl. Best part was there was just enough left for David to take to lunch.  Hell yeah for no leftovers.  While I love leftover night because I don't have to cook, we were throwing food away and that sucks.  So I have been trying really hard to make sure I am just cooking enough and not too much. 

I really need to be better about having my grocery list ready come Friday night.  Since I can't drive and am waiting for payday to come around, I try to be ready to do on Saturday so that its done and out of the way.  The days when I am getting them on Sunday or Monday even really mess everything up.  Menu planning is such a great way to make life easier when done on time.  Who else was running late this week trying to figure out what to eat?  I know I'm not the only one!

So what DID make it on your menu for the week.  Or what are you still planning to make?
