Menu Plan Monday

Usually I am a creature of habit. This weekend I ventured from my norm. I spent Saturday with a girlfriend doing some shopping and then went to the KSU volleyball game on Saturday night with Lawman, B3 and several of her teammates. I enjoyed the entire day. What I don't enjoy is how off-track one day of fun can make me.

Knowing I would need to go get groceries today, I quickly planned my menu and threw together my shopping list. What I didn't do was check the cupboards for what I already had. I discovered that when I got home I had duplicate and in some cases triple items. I found this to be very frustrating as I spent a lot of money at the grocery store, some of which wasn't necessary. I know that in the long run it will all even out but it still irritates me that I just made unnecessary purchases. That's what happens when I get in a rush and don't do a thorough job of planning. And, because I was tired when I did the menu, there's no new recipes to be tried this week.

Here's our weekly menu.

Sunday - Pork Stir-fry with Rice and Eggrolls

Monday - Tuna Patties, Seasoned Microwaved Potatoes, Veggies

Tuesday - Spaghetti, Salad, Bread

Wednesday - Breakfast Casserole, Applesauce, Toast

Thursday - Chili (crockpot) w/crackers, Cinnamon Rolls

Friday - Mexican Pizza, Chips w/Queso

Saturday - To be determined.
