I'm linking up with Laura @ orgjunkie.com to list my dinner menu for the week. I planned this out on Sunday before I started the blog - hence why it's...ahem...Tuesday. To help me keep track of my menu I'm using a free app for iPhone called "Pepper Plate." If you don't have an iPhone, you can visit their website and create an account for free!
My Menu for the Week:
Monday - Hormel(R) Beef Roast, Bob Evans(R) garlic mashed potatoes, sugar snap/carrot mix, mac 'n' cheese for the picky husband. I often have to modify meals for hubby as he eats about ten things.
Tuesday - Leftover Roast - I work late. I call these nights in which I work late "fend for yourself" nights.
Wednesday - Buitoni(R) Four CheeseTortelloni with Alfredo sauce, sugar snap peas (I was really craving those.)
Thursday - I work late again - Hubby will pick up a pizza
Friday - Teriyaki Chicken, Chow Mein Noodles, Asian Veggie Mix
Saturday - Shrimp & Cheddar Cheese grits - grilled cheese for Hubs.
Sunday - Leftover Shrimp & Cheddar Cheese Grits
So because I was starting this this week, I wanted to keep things really simple. Most things listed are pre-packaged foods that I can just heat up. I do normally like to cook from scratch and use our steamer whenever possible however, this week my work schedule is all over the place. I work part time and sometimes I "open", sometimes I work "midday", and sometimes I "close." Today I close, so I'll get home close to 9 pm only to open at work tomorrow and close on Thursday. Thankfully I'm off Friday. Sheesh. That's another constant struggle for me - keeping up with my work schedule and trying to work around it. I could make this an excuse, but everyone else has to function with funky schedules so I shouldn't be any different. Right?
