Menu Plan Monday

Woo-hoo, it’s Monday! Am I excited its Monday? Not really I just thought starting my day with a cheer would make me enjoy it more…um so far it’s not working.

I actually straightened up the kitchen & got a headstart on laundry (oh my laundry runneth over) yesterday, we had no evening worship at church last night. Every year around Valentine's Day we celebrate our wonderful Senior citizens and enjoy a yummy fellowship meal-yay for church dinners! I ONLY do housework on Sundays if I know my Monday will be busy or if the house is a real disaster. Um, it was a combination of those reasons yesterday that motivated me.

I’m hoping to fill up the cookie jar today, but I’ve got to get groceries and that honestly just wears me out. I don’t think it’s the shopping, I think it’s my partner—Jilly Bean. q (The ‘q’ is not a typo, Jill is helping me and she wanted to push the Q when I needed it…obviously I needed it now so she would go away.)

Here’s my Proposed Weekly Menu..I’m hoping to actually stick to it this week!

Monday – Lasagna, salad, bread q (Alas, my ploy of allowing her to do it earlier did not work, she’s still here.)

Tuesday - Leftovers

Wednesday – Pancake Supper

Thursday - Ranch Beef Stroganoff, Noodles or Mashed Potatoes, Broccoli, Corn, Rolls (forgot about dentist & hair appointments last week so this is back on the menu. We treated ourselves to dinner out and I spent the next couple of hours griping about how many homemade pizzas I could have made for the $50 it cost us to eat…grrr…)

Friday - Hoagies and chips, one of my kids fav meals

Saturday Is Pizza Night for the Mess Makers

Q – Oops, that was me, not Jill
