Menu Monday

Here's my attempt at a menu plan:

Monday ~ Pork Medallions Alfredo / Green Beans / Pear Salad

Tuesday ~ Creamy Broccoli -Stuffed Chicken Breast / Veggies / Rolls

Wednesday ~ whatever is provided at church

Thursday ~ Bacon cheeseburger roll-up / chips

Friday ~ We're packing up mid-afternoon and heading for Charleston, SC for the weekend, so there is no plan for Friday

Saturday ~ Hyman's Seafood Restaurant

Sunday ~ No meal plans / we plan to spend most of the day at the beach and the open air market.

We're off to a pretty good start on our menu, I followed thru with Monday's new recipe!!

That Kind of Week

I decided 2 weeks ago that we really needed to start menu planning again in an effort to save money. That worked great for 2 weeks... This week I planned my menu using what we had at home because I knew I would not have time for a grocery run until Friday afternoon. Well, my week didn't quite turn out like I'd planned. We've had SO much going on with Jay's softball games, extra hours at work and the rest of life that our menu didn't quite turn out like I'd planned this week. I thought I'd take this time to share my PLANNED menu and our ACTUAL menu... Enjoy!

Monday: Chicken sandwiches and chips (before Jay's game)
Tuesday: Grilled Chicken, rice and green beans
Wednesday: whatever was provided at church
Thursday: Breakfast
Friday: Grilled Hamburgers
Saturday: no plan
Sunday: eat out as usual

Monday: Jay ~ chicken tenders and chips (we had no bread for a sandwich)
Michelle ~ soda crackers with melted cheese - this was all I had the energy to make
Tuesday: Chinese Take out
Wednesday: at church ~ pork roast, mashed potatoes, black eyed peas and peach cobbler
Thursday: Jay is picking up hot wings as I type
Friday: Maybe that grilled chicken from Tuesday???
Saturday: Maybe I'll actually cook a meal
Sunday: out with the gang

AND there you have it. Our crappy diet for the week, but tomorrow is grocery day and we'll be eating on a menu plan next week... NO EXCUSES!!!

I've been trying something new with my hair this week. I've been wearing it "natural", that's a bit misleading, but I'm using my natural curl and just enhancing it a little. Here are a few picts. so that you can tell me what you like better... Please be kind.

This is my "straight" hair. It's much longer now though.

This is a more recent "straight" hair picture.

This is the curly version... What do you think?

I know what you're thinking -- she really needs to do something about those roots. I agree, but our entire budget is going to gas and groceries now so there's no extra money for color...

Go figure!!!
