Okay. There are some weeks (and months) when the meal plan doesn’t happen according to plan. For those times, it’s nice to have that list (even though it wasn’t followed) because it makes planning successive lists easier.
My mind was literally a blank when I sat down to plan the menu. Then, I remembered the We Plan Wednesday post when I planned out the June menu. Yup. I didn’t touch a lot of those. So, two of them have been re-featured in this week’s meal plan.
And, as our Fourth of July plans changed (with July 4 not being the statutory holiday and Josh having to work it, rather than just be on call), the menu plan for last week changed. Our “Fourth of July hamburger bash” was pushed back a week, and there was no way that I could make red beans and rice for Sunday (since we would still be gone) or even Monday (because I need to soak the beans). So, I had to call on some reserves that I had.
Saturday: at my sister’s; Josh is on his own
Sunday: at my sister’s; Josh is on his own
Monday: turkey (ground) tacos, chips, salsa
Tuesday: Chicken French (Ducks N a Row), salad, rolls
Wednesday: Muffaletta Casserole (Miz Helen’s Country Cottage), green veg
Thursday: leftovers or big salad
Friday: French bread pizza, corn
Saturday: Fourth of July hamburger bash re-do, beans, potato salad, ice cream
Sunday: Southern Buttermilk Fried Chicken (adapted from A Bountiful Kitchen), mashed potatoes, peas
What is on your meal plan this week?
