Well last week I managed to make 3 dinners from the 5 I had planned (accounting for 2 already planned for eating out events). One of those missed nights turned into a leftovers and blue box mac n cheese night since I had forgotten to pull chicken out early enough in the day to get it thawed and prepped before we had to be at scouts. The other ended up a drive thru night after church (we go to our church’s 5pm Saturday service so we can leave the more popular Sunday mornings open for all the new comers) and a full day of scouting activities and house projects that left me too zapped. We all LOVED those pumpkin stuffed shells from last week– totally give them a try!
So on a positive note I already had 2 meals for this weeks plan (the 2 that fell off last week) which made it nice and easy.
It seems chicken is on sale everywhere this week so I will stock up, but try to use it sparingly this week since we will have a stockpile to dip into in the coming weeks and I don’t want to tire of it.
Here is what we will eat
