It’s been a little while since I’ve posted a Menu Plan post … not that I haven’t been planning, somewhat, but, man, life has been busy as heck around here … but I did make time to hit up the grocery store on Sunday morning, do a little prep (salad stuff, made regular mayo and basil mayo and divied up the chicken thighs for lunches) and I also have a few blog post set up for the week …
This is my morning view Monday through Friday as I drive to work … it’s a great way to start the morning, see those lovely palm trees (and the ocean behind them) and then when I get to work, the next 8 to 10 hours are consumed and just make my mind frazzled … then I come home, Hubby has cooked dinner 75% of the time, eat, change clothes and then hop on the laptop for an hour or three of my new side gig I’ve been doing … which honestly, I LOVE as I’m averaging $20 to $25 an hour which is pretty sweet for a work at home job (before you hound me for details, let me just say that this is what I do for a living those 8 to 10 hours per day at the office) … but the whole goal with that additional side gig is to pay down debt AND set myself up for a work from home gig when 2016 ends since that is my end date at the office … I want to be able to enjoy those palm trees for more than just a few minutes each day as I wait in traffic …
Anyways … what I was saying is that life is zipping past. Like, seriously, it’s MID-MAY!? AND with all that above mentioned stuff, in addition to trying to sell our house, buy a new house and deal with day to day family crisis stuff, I’ve really been a hot mess 😉 SO this week, I’m planning the menu and giving it to Hubby to execute … let’s see how he does?
We are both tired and will just be eating leftovers (I ate a super late lunch so I will probably just have a small snack of berries or something) Hubby is looking at the fried rice and chicken he made on Friday 😉
Steak Bites and roasted fingerlings … will also offer a salad along side
Taco Tuesday … been a while since we’ve done this and I have a bit of ground beef in the freezer that’s too lean for burgers so Hubby said
Cracklin Chicken from Nom Nom Paleo … first time making this and it’s up to Hubby to perform! I will suggest that he do it outside on the grill to reduce the cleanup factor!
BLT Boats … just because it’s been a little while!
Turkey burgers on the grill since we have a whole sleeve of them still 😉 Guess you could say we’ve been avoiding them!
Hubby’s choice and fingers crossed it’s something healthy with no retaliation for the past week! 😉
What are YOU making this week? I’m sharing over at Organized Junkie’s Menu Plan Monday party … go check it out!
