So, last week’s meal plan was a TOTAL bust. My BFF is still in the hospital, so lots of time was spent in the actual building at the beginning of the week and later in the week on the computer communicating things about her health.
My father-in-law’s quadruple bypass got postponed to until Friday (from Tuesday) so my sweet hubby was gone ALL WEEK. With just me and the girl to cook for, it became a let’s eat what’s there and easy kind of week.
Then, a friend emailed that they had read the blog and would like to make my BBQ for me for Sunday (it was on my menu). How sweet was that!? It was super yummy and we have leftovers. I’ve had lots of good friends dropping notes, little gifts. It’s awesome to be surrounded by the Body of Christ. Thank you so much for loving me this week.
So, with things hopefully returning to somewhat normal, here’s the menu.
Monday: Small Group Night – not my night to cook. Wahoo….
Tuesday: Leftovers – the yummy BBQ mentioned above plus a few other things hanging out.
Wednesday: Chicken Quesadillas (from last week)
Thursday: Meatloaf (see below), Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans
Friday: Beef Stew
Saturday: Leftovers (did I mention there is only 3 of us – we never finish anything)
Sunday: Stufffed Shells (already in freezer from a “Big Cook” I did last week)
This if from a Kraft mini-cookbook I bought YEARS ago.
