Menu Plan Monday - Desperation Dinners
Ok, I said I was busy last week, but this week is a tad bit out of control. I won't rant and rave about my ridiculous schedule, but instead, I will use it as an opportunity to share with you how I avoid eating out on a week when cooking is almost impossible unless you like to eat really late at night (which I do not). This is a week of what I call "desperation dinners". When I know that I am going to have zero time to cook, I rely on convenience foods from the grocery store or items that I might have stocked up in my freezer (which, unfortunately for me this week, is running a bit low). Here's this week's menu of desperation dinners. For more menu ideas that might not be so desperate, visit orgjunkie.com. I should have a more "normal" menu next week, but hopefully you can see how convenience items can keep you away from McDonalds. :) Have a great week!
Sunday - ate at my mom's (who happened to send home some leftovers - thanks, Mom!)
Monday - Stouffer's Chicken Alfredo (my favorite go-to frozen entree), broccoli, peaches
Tuesday - Red Beans and Rice with Sausage (Zatarans low sodium w/ lowfat smoked sausage), salad
Wednesday - BBQ Pork Sandwiches (from freezer), leftover cheesy potatoes from my mom, leftover baked beans from my mom
Thursday - Mac & Cheese with Tuna (yes, the kind in the box, mixed with a can of tuna - the boys love it for some reason); Green beans
Friday - Beenie Weenies (I had a coupon for free hot dogs this week); Salad, Applesauce
Saturday - out to eat for my anniversary!
