Menu Plan 1•27•19

Happy Monday Everyone!!  To much?  I know, it's like Mondays just sneak up on us.  One minute it's Friday and then BOOM!  Monday...  Le sigh!  I'll bring it down a notch. 

Menu Plan Monday

Guess what though.  David always laughs at how serious I take my menu plans.  It is kinda ridiculous.  Some weeks it takes me days to figure out what I want.  And then I have to figure out what else I'm adding to the list.  Then make sure its in our budget and add or subtract more things.  Then the boys will hit me with all their last minute additions and I am back to moving things around.  This week I literally picked 5 recipes and didn't even think about how many dinners would be served with rice or tortillas.   And I rolled with it.  Of course David came home and told me he enjoyed the "light" week.  Yeah, about that.  Here is what landed on the menu this week.

Arroz con Pollo

Roast Chicken

Taco Night

Baked Pork Chops

Chicken Tetrazinni

Chicken Tacos
Tacos anyone?
Not at all light.  Oops.  But all favorites.  As much as I love having another income, I cant say I miss David having to leave again so soon.  It's such a rush after school between kid duty and getting dinner done on time, so I try to have it done before them or close to it.  Some days dinners are perfectly put together and some days not so much.  For the most part we manage to all gather around the table and that is what really matters.  There's just something about family dinners that makes my world go round.  Even with all the crazy conversations and questions that the boys like to drop on us.

Do y'all eat dinner together?  David grew up just grabbing a plate and eating where ever.  Dinner was pretty much the most normal thing we did as growing up.  As crazy as it could get, I loved that we were all together.  Hopefully the boys will have as many dinner stories to tell when they are all grown up!?
Menu Plan Monday

Whats cooking in your kitchen this week?  Are you still cooking up warm food to fight cold weather.  Not to brag, but its looking like we will be close to the 80s.  Maybe next week I will break out the grill and keep that heat outside. Guess I better start planning next weeks menu!

Happy Monday Y'all!
