Happy Monday, y’all.
And it is most definitely Monday today. My poor babies did not want to go to bed last night and really did not want to get up this morning – stupid time change really messes with their little body clocks. This morning was a lot of non-verbal communication – I felt like I was living with some Neanderthal girls – lots of grunts and moans and such. Oh well, hopefully we will all adjust soon.
Thankfully, I have a menu plan for the week. I think this is going to be one of those weeks where I will be really glad I am prepared and know what I need to do on each day – SuperMan has some evening plans and I am sure the kids are going to be tired until their little bodies adjust to the time change. Having dinner sorted out will make it easier for me to focus on them when they need it – and not on a panic about what to cook for supper.
Cooking up some comfort food this week:
- Meatloaf on Monday
- Creamy chicken & noodles with vegetables on Tuesday
- Salmon croquettes and grits on Wednesday
- Spaghetti on Thursday – we’re taking dinner to a friend whose daughter just got out of the hospital on Saturday. Poor darling has mito and has had some recent challenges. We’re all praying for a miracle for her – but I’m doing what I can by feeding them with love and food this week.
- my new favorite Asian chicken lettuce wraps on Friday
(I may try to make the girls some homemade sweet & sour chicken for their dinner)
What about you? Have your menu planned?
I’ll be sharing my menu planning tips later this week – and some recipes!

One thought on “Menu Plan Monday ~ 14 March”
Ah Lois, you’re sooooo organised! I just “wing it” most days, though I usually shop with an idea of what I will cook “at some point” in the week! We have a fixed menu for a Friday, when we always eat Spaghetti Carbonara (actually, we eat our own version of this, with cheddar cheese and ham, rather than parmesan and pancetta!). Other than that… hmmm… We play it by ear. Yet we don’t starve, so I guess it works for us!
I’m off to “investigate the possibilities” for this evening’s dinner now (it’s 5:15pm here). Enjoy your Meatloaf!
