Menu Plan Monday

Happy Monday, all! Yes, it's Monday and I am officially back from my self imposed internet sabbatical. It was a well needed break but I am very glad to be back. I missed my blog world and popping into some of your blogs to see how y'all are doing. How are all of you doing? Are those of you who were doing the 28 day challenge still making good progress? I bet some of you are done. I'm going to take some time tonight to do some popping around. I can't wait to see what's happening with folks.

As for me, well not much is happening. The Dell representative still hasn't gotten back to me as to how they're going to handle one of their other reps admitting they goofed up. Keep you fingers crossed folks. I really need them to take responsibility and fix my laptop. While I love this one, it's just not capable of doing some of what I need a computer to do. Thank goodness Jim gave her to me though. She's been a real trooper while I've needed to use her.

Let's see, what else? The van now has a shiney new tie rod. I can't get the alignment done until a week from Friday but that's going to get scheduled and done. Then, as my mechanic said, we wait for the next thing to break and we see about handling that. I have no doubt that something will need replacing. In fact, I'm fairly certain that the brakes need to be done soon. Oh, and it needs an oil change. Don't forget folks, the van fund is always accepting donations. *grins*

I guess that's about all the excitement in my life. I've been working on "The Wall" and have pictures for you. It is Monday, after all and y'all are my accountability force. I'll be posting them in a separate post right after this one so you can see my progress. I still don't know if it will be done in time to submit for the prizes, but it sure is a heck of a lot better!

Now, for this week's menu...I've been in a bit of a cooking funk lately. I just don't feel like doing it. So, keeping in that mode, this week is going for quick and simple and mostly brainless. So, here we go:

Monday- Mac n Cheese
Tuesday- Chicken and Rice
Wednesday- Spaghetti w/ hamburger
Thursday- Sizzle steak sandwiches
Friday- Pizza
Saturday- Chili
Sunday- Leftovers

One menu! Tada! Hopefully next week I'll be back in cooking mode and have made a trip to Family Fare for some real amounts/qualities of groceries. I think that's part of the problem. IGA is convenient but unless you want Kraut juice or Sauerkraut, the selection just isn't there. I bought 3 boxes of mac n cheese from them the other day and that was their entire stock of that sort. Anywhos, I'm off to post my photos. Your daily challenge will be cleverly (or not so cleverly) added to that post!
