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!

Planned:
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

ACTUAL:
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!!!

We had a similar week. I planned dinner but then the roast we were going to have on Tuesday took 2 days to cook and it was too rainy to grill yesterday (as we had planned)Go figure : )
