Monday Menu Planning
Do you ever get to the end the day and wonder where it went? I certainly felt like that at the end of recess and lunch time. Where did that break go? I haven't finished my tea yet. And I need to finish my tea. I don't drink coffee and days with no release time are full on. Tea is essential! And sugar of some description.
The good thing is that I managed to get my menu plan and grocery shopping done. On Sunday. Sadness. I so enjoyed not having to do that last Sunday, but you can't be at work all afternoon on Saturday and expect to get the grocery shopping done, now can you?
In any case, we have a menu, and one meal has been prepared, consumed and cleaned up.
Monday: Thai chicken curry, rice, roti bread
Tuesday: Chicken Kiev (pre-prepared from Aldi), vegetables
Wednesday: Oven Friend Chicken, vegetables
Thursday: Mum & Dad are bringing dinner with them (Hallelujah!)
Friday: Fend for Yourself Friday
Saturday: Homemade pizza (using Aldi pizza bases from the bread section)
Sunday: Veggie Plate (a plate filled with roasted & steamed veggies)
We're exactly half way through Term 3, and you can tell that things are starting to slide, in the food department. Pre-prepared, pretend chicken is evidence. You know what? I don't have the wherewithal to care that much. And yet I do, but other things seem to get in the way of the time it takes to prepare the kind of dinner I really yearn to eat.
