What's on my menu?-Week 3


When I planned out the meals for the month I looked at this week in particular and thought, "How in the world am I going to have time to fix dinner?"  This week is one of those weeks that is over booked.  This week looked stressful before I even got to it.  Then to top it off my little family has been sick the last 5 days.  So my house is a disaster.  Needless to say I am glad I planned for a week that was a bit hectic.

It is so hectic that I thought it was a good idea to plan everything that I would eat, even down to the snacks.  You see when I get overwhelmed or stressed I tend to not eat.  I am not a stress eater.  I am a stress "starver".  (If that is a word)

So I thought I could make my stressful week benefit my readers!  How do you ask?  Well I am going to share my meal plan this week.  Now don't judge.  There will be some eating out and all of the meals are SUPER easy.  Also, there are going to be repeats.  I did this on purpose for two reasons.  Number 1: I like to utilize my leftovers (if they are good as leftovers).  Number 2: I did not want to spend a lot this month on groceries because we are trying to be frugal for Christmas coming up and this way it kept the grocery list done by utilizing the same foods just on different days.

So here you go!  Enjoy!  Hopefully this will take care of the question, "What's for dinner?"

I feel so much more prepared for the the week by planning out everything that I will eat.  So if you feel overwhelmed by the week or even if it is a day then plan it out.  I am much less overwhelmed because I did so.  Have a great week!

This post is by far the worst for you, but at the same time sometimes realistic for certain weeks. :)
