There was way too much activity going on around the pool on Sunday that I didn’t even think of posting the Weekly Menu Plan until 10pm … and quite honestly, I was in bed, ready to watch Mad Men … and promptly fell asleep.
That’s what happens when your kids decide to host an impromptu Craft Beer Tasting, poolside.
It was fun, but whoa, some of them beers are just a little too much for me to deal with! Who would have thought a beer could have a 13% alcohol content? Tasted horrible too so not a big deal in the end!
Hubby was a good guy and made BBQ Sauce (summer time is HERE!! Recipe coming soon, promise!) along with some marinara sauce to go with my planned dinner for the evening … which he followed perfectly! My bad in that I forgot to grab the watermelon and pineapple I had cut up that morning to remember to eat it before it went bad!
Saturday afternoon, I cleared out the produce drawers. What a disappointment that was … I DO have a tendency to overbuy produce and then forget about what I bought exactly IF I don’t prep it within the day of buying … 😦 Was very sad to toss out as much as I did but at least now I know exactly WHAT I have in the fridge!
Ok, enough of that … here’s what we are planning for the week!
Sunday – Meatball Subs (with Hubby’s marinara sauce) along with a couple of beef kabobs that I had picked up at Whole Foods. Was afraid I wouldn’t have enough food (a lot of kids were around) but we did! Even though I forgot to pull the fresh fruit out! Meatballs from freezer (Costco), sub rolls from Publix (freezer), sauce ingredients from pantry. I also served up the rest of the salad from the night before with the dressing (OG style) … good stuff!
Monday – LEFTOVERS from Saturday and Sunday nights! (grilled chicken breast, crashed taters and beef kabobs)
Tuesday – Taco Tuesday …. tacos with all the fixins (make mine a salad!) (using ground chicken from freezer, fixins in fridge, including cheese)
Wednesday – Philly Cheese steak Stuffed Peppers. Peppers are in fridge (they are red, I might stop and get greens instead), roast beef, cheese, etc. are all in the fridge. Will use a can of mushrooms.
Thursday – BLT Inspired Chicken Salad. We actually made the chicken in this marinade Saturday night with the crashed taters. It was so yummy I decided I wanted to make the salad this week! All salad stuff in fridge, chicken in freezer (may want to get some fresh basil?)
Friday – Soup and Sandwiches (for an easy Friday night) … looking at grilled ham and cheese (both in fridge and freezer) and maybe an impromptu French Onion Soup …
Saturday – Bone In BBQ Chicken! Using Hubby’s sauce that he made … so excited! Will need to buy more chicken thighs as I’ve only got a package or two in the freezer I think. Most likely, Hubby will make a batch of baked beans. I will probably also toss together a cabbage salad (or maybe slaw?) and will need to buy all the stuff for that!
As I will need to go to the store for a weekend BBQ I’m going to stay very focused on what we need specifically for the weekend ONLY! 🙂 Wish me luck!
