Good Morning and Welcome to a new week and a beautiful Fall Day
I hope it is as nice where you are as it is here.
Fall is a Glorious time in Texas!
Today I am sharing my Menu plans for the week and a few thoughts about Menus for our family.
Lately I have been a bit discouraged on this topic because for the last 3 or so weeks the Cowboy has had no appetite for food. He has been eating but very little. The last few days though he has been a bit closer to normal. Although at this point it is hard to say or know what normal is. Anyway with that said Menu Planning has been a challenge.
I seem to have to try new things or ways to accomplish this task and it seems to change weekly. My life is a Roller Coaster at least our meals are.
After that Fun ride let's get to it and plan a Menu!
I begin my Menu Planning on Saturday when I do my Happy Homemaker post. By Monday morning sometimes I've changed my mind. LOL . . .
Monday Kielbasa, L/O Pinto's Fried Potato's and something a bit O Green maybe a Spinach w/ Ranch appetizer
Taco Tuesday Always easy and a Family Favorite. Why do I stress about this?
Wednesday Chicken Pot Pie and hopefully a Salad
Thursday Spaghetti with Meat Sauce from L/O Taco meat, Salad and Garlic Bread
Friday Beef? Maybe I can find Steak on sale this week. If not I have Mussels and Soft Shell Crab in the freezer.
Sometimes my plans to do change. Sometimes by Monday I've tweeked it.
Today I think we are keeping with the plan.
Sometimes my plans change because I happen on a good Meat buy at the store or find some really good fresh veggies and so I change things to accommodate good buys.
But lately I have had to be flexible and change my plans based on what I can talk the Cowboy into eating.
I guess you might wonder why I even mess with a Menu.
I am a planner.
Normally making a plan keeps me on track and helps me to remember to use leftovers. And keeps me from spending as much at the grocery story.
And so I plan. I need a plan. It keeps me centered.
I'll let you know how it goes!
Do you plan a Menu?
I would love to visit you.
Do you have suggestions for me on managing The Cowboys meals?
I'd love your input.
