Weekly Menu – Week of August 14th

weekly menu planning

The summer continues to fly by!  We’ve been doing a pretty good job of making the most of it but it just never fails to amaze me when it’s over.  Yesterday I was at the store buying some stuff for my mom and I got behind a bunch of “back to school” moms.  Every lane had them.  If I was buying stuff for myself I’d have put it down and walked out, but alas I needed to stand in that line.

Ugh!  I’m so glad those days are over for me.  I think my blood pressure raised with each item they put on the belt.  Not that I was frustrated they had so much (although that was a tiny bit stressful), it was the remembering the outlay of money for school supplies, classroom fees, yearbooks, clothes.  And the list goes on….

I ended up eating out a few more times than I planned last week.  A couple of friends I haven’t seen in a while (one of them was over 2 years) reached out to me.  Both nights were amazing, I couldn’t believe what a good time I had.  Definitely worth going off the menu.

Yesterday, at Mike’s request,  I went to make our weekly chicken on the grill instead of baking it.  When I grill it I usually go inside since it takes almost as long as baking it does.  As I was putzing in the kitchen, I start smelling this horrible smell.  Figuring something was going on in the grill I went out to check the meat only to be met with flames coming out of the grill.  The whole thing, including my chicken was on fire!  I’m not a novice griller and had the chicken on indirect heat so I’m going to chalk this one up to the grill is definitely on it’s last legs.

So much for $10 worth of chicken and my prep for the week.  Needless to say, last night was a fend for yourself night.  I guess even the best cooks have an off night 🙂


Weekly Menu

This week pretty much all of our meals will be from Plated.com


Mediterranean Chicken

Mediterranean Chicken

Shrimp Tacos

Balsamic Steak sandwiches

I have a work dinner tonight so I’ll order Mike a dinner to go (on my own dime) so he has dinner tonight.

We’ll had at least one fend for yourself night and we’ll be going out for dinner Friday and possibly Saturday.  I’ll also probably stop at the deli and pick up some rotisserie chicken so that there’s some kind of protein in the house.

How about you, what’s on your menu for the week?
