Menu Plan 6•14•21

Oh Monday.  I am happy to see you but I was not prepared at all.  Last week was a blur.  Who am I kidding.  My whole life right now is a blur.  But Im here.  And getting this week planned out.  Even if it is already pushing 2pm.

Last week we ended up having to run back down to San Antonio for a quick one night trip to grab medicine that got left behind.  Let me tell you, being a mom is a worry filled job.  But I having to worry about medication, for myself and now Anthony is the devil spawn of worry, fear and exhaustion.  I don't know how else to explain my feelings when I realized we brought Anthonys refrigerated medication but totally left all his other pills behind.  We were so focused on making sure we had the cold meds cold enough.  After all, they are the most expensive and hard to get. 

This week brings us a garage appointment, a vaccine appointment, and a couch!  I am so excited to have a couch.  Even if we forgot to measure it until after we bought it and will now have to figure that out too.  I also had to cancel appointments down in San Antonio because, that just not going to happen this week.  Instead we are going to stat home and continue getting things here situated.  There are still boxes everywhere.

And of course we are behind and haven't done our grocery shopping but we will get that done here shortly.  The dinners are planned though so we are half way there.  So much to do and all I want to do is lay in the sun and read a book.  Ohhh, I am adding "buy a hammock" to my to do list.  Back to the menu, here is what we came up with this week!

Monday:  Panko Crusted Cod and Salads

Tuesday:  Southwest Wraps

Wednesday:  Leftovers    

Thursday:  Korean Roasted Chicken 

Friday:  BLT Lettuce Wraps

And for me, I will have the fish as is.  My wraps will be meat free and I when I make the Korean chicken I will make a tofu and veggie stir fry for myself and they can have that for a side dish as well.  Less meat for me.  Ive been working to get back to my pre move mostly vegetarian diet.

Ive gone back to scheduling days to my meals as well because it might be the only thing I have control over these days.  Kidding.  Sort of.  Don't judge me!  Im also going back to leftover night because...I said so.  Shoot I want to enjoy summer too.  I love my new kitchen but I don't want to spend all my hours there.  Remember, hammock time!

A friend reached out for some help with getting her menu/shopping under control.  I get such a kick out of it when people tell me I look like I have it all under control.  I love to set people straight.  This is the only thing I have under control.  In case you havent caught on by now.  My life is some sort of beautiful disaster.  It love it but its never perfect.  I need to work on my transparency clearly.  Note to self, show more of the real!
