Meal plans are wonderful, but life happens. Here is a review of last week's eats and how it all turned out.
Previous Week (Meal Plan 7/19-7/25)
Monday, I made balsamic chicken with white rice. The leftovers were eaten on Wednesday. Tuesday, we ate ground beef tacos with homemade flour tortillas and tomato salsa. I was going to make guacamole, but when I cut into the avocados they were spoiled. Betty Crapper should have refrigerated them when they were ready a few days before. Lesson learned. Thursday and Sunday, we had spaghetti and salad. Betty Crapper will never, ever tire of spaghetti. She has tired of pizza. Last week I ate more pizza than I did as a freshman in college many years ago. I had pizza for lunch Tuesday, dinner Friday, dinner Saturday, lunch Sunday. NO MORE PIZZA (at least in the next week). Only Friday's pizza was homemade. Unfortunately I never made the peach chicken and it will be carried over to this week.
Meal Plan 7/26-8/1
Monday: four cheese baked penne
Tuesday: peach chicken with white rice
Wednesday: ham fried rice
Thursday: chicken parmesan
Friday: mini meat loaves with buttermilk mashed potatoes
Saturday: grilled pork tenderloin
Baking/Sweets Wish List
Last week we finished eating the Tiramisu cake and I made lemon sorbet and raspberry granita (look for upcoming post). I still have a good amount in the freezer. If I have time I may make chocolate chip cookies.
I reserve the right to make substitutions and deletions due to laziness!
