Menu Plan Monday Feb 15 - 19
Menu planning is not so much fun for me today! I need to get it done, in the midst of a lot of other things, and I really need to get out and get groceries in time to do some banking for the business at the same time. Charlotte had her needles this morning and didn't have a long enough nap, so everything is a bit crazy today. Anyway, I think I need to post that menu planning is supposed to make life easier! And it does... sometimes it's just a pain to do the planning part. (Just being honest!!) But during the week, flexibility is key, don't feel like you need to stick to your exact plan to succeed. As long as you have ideas and the groceries in the fridge, make what works for your family at the time. Don't be too hard on yourself!!
Monday: Whatever's in the fridge (Charlotte was really fussy from her needles and we ended up having baked sausage and leftovers... Tim also is working REALLY late tonight, so with no help with the babe or the food, we just made do. That's where the flexibility comes in!!)
Tuesday: Chicken Marsala
Wednesday: Mashed Potatoes with a veg and steak
Thursday: Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
