Menu Plan Monday ~ January 19th
Hey all, how are you?
There were some problems last week with Mr. Linky disappearing and then reappearing only to disappear again. Hopefully all those kinks have been worked out now. If you don’t see the links it just means their site is down but hopefully not for long.
Last week I got a few questions about my Leftover Buffet and Simple Supper Sunday nights so I thought I’d explain a little bit about what those mean for us.
Leftover Buffet night (usually Thursday night for us) simply means I go through the fridge, arrange all the leftovers on the counter and then everyone helps themselves to a little of this or a little of that. Everyone heats up their own plates and digs in. I get a little crazy if the leftovers pile up too much in the fridge so having a mid-week leftover day scheduled keeps me from doing the funky chicken dance.
Sundays we like to keep pretty easy around here and because we usually eat a late lunch no one wants a big dinner. So for us it usually means grilled cheese and soup or my husband’s yummy omelets. He really does make the best omelets which is amazing considering he’s allergic to eggs and has never ever tried one (isn’t that sweet!). Having a simple supper on Sunday also means we don’t start the next week off with leftovers in the fridge. I do like starting the week with a clean slate so that when I get groceries on Monday morning there is room for them in my fridge.
Okay last week was a great tasting week for us and I enjoyed it all. Not a dud in the batch which always makes me happy :) We haven’t made the Lemon and Garlic Roast Chicken yet though because we ended up being invited out for dinner on Saturday and since I hadn’t taken the chicken out of the freezer yet it was easy to move that meal to this week. I love the flexibility of menu planning!
Have a great week everyone!
