Menu Plan Monday

Hello Hello! It's Monday again and I hope that all of you US'ers had a lovely Thanksgiving and for those of you not in the US, I hope you had a lovely weekend. Mine was pretty good, I'd have to say. Like I mentioned way back on Wednesday, I had weekend company and I went to my family's for Thanksgiving.

Jim got here late on Wednesday night. This time I didn't make a bunch of food for him because last time he ate on the way and this time was no different. Yay, me for thinking of that! On Thursday, we went over to my Grandma's house and spent the day. It was really nice except for my poor niece Caitlyn came down with some sort of stomach bug right during dinner. Poor girl. I need to call and see if she's feeling any better. After dinner, we hung out for a while but left around 8 because Jim wanted to make sure we hit Michael's so he could get his Cricuit. That reminds me, I have to go back to Michael's to see if they got any more of the cute reindeer notebooks in stock. I wanted to get one, but Jim snatched it out of my hand and got it for his new girlfriend. Meaniehead. :P

Friday was good. We got up early and went and did a bunch of shopping. Walmart really sucked this year. They didn't have a good chunk of what they were supposed to and we were there less than 2 hours after the sales started. I don't know if they just didn't have it or they just didn't figure people would shop this year. I know a bunch of people were really disappointed at that. I did score some good deals though. Menards had to be the best this year. I got 2 dvd/movie/cd/what have you storage racks for $8.99 each. They're usually $24.99 so go me! After hitting 4 different stores, we called it quits and grabbed some food at Denny's before going to my favorite new thrift store out in Charlottte. Sadly, they didn't have what I was hoping to find but I did get a few things.

Let's see...then, we came back here and took naps. I didn't sleep basically at all the night before and well, he's old and 6 hours of sleep wasn't enough for him, I guess. He was falling asleep at the wheel and nearly got me killed at least once. Naps are good. Then, we got up and went back to Lansing to go see The Blind Side. Fantastic, wonderful movie. I highly recommend it as your feel good movie of the season if you haven't seen it yet. While we were there, Jim got the boys and I a $20 gift card and popcorn bucket so I can take them to the movies over Christmas break. Yay, Jim! I can't wait to surprise the boys with it.

Saturday I tried to sleep in a little because once again, I didn't sleep well the night before. When I did get up, Jim was in a big rush to get out the door and head back to his house. He'd already loaded all of his things into his car. So, after a quick lunch at Swede's, he dropped me off and after helping me put the feet on my current movie rack, he took off. He said it was because he wanted to avoid holiday traffic and all but I think he really had a date yesterday afternoon. Either that or he was just in a big hurry to be away from me and with another woman. ;)

So, where does that all leave me? Well, with a menu I need to plan! Actually, I already had it planned though I did have to tweak it. Jim never wants me too cook...I honestly think that he thinks I don't know how or something, so my weekend meals never happened. No worries, it just means more yummies for me this week.

Monday - Ground Beef Stroganoff
Tuesday - Taco Chicken Packets
Wednesday - Chicken Cacciatore
Thursday - Horseradish Burgers
Friday - Possibly @ Grandma's
Saturday - Possibly @ Grandma's
Sunday - Taco Chicken Wrap

So, how did all of you spend your weekend and what deliciousness is on your menus? I wanna know!

HI just your old mom. I was hoping you would stop by, but Grandma said you were rushed out. I stayed on the puter between making dinner and listening to you dad and Uncle Cliff holler at the football game.
Cliff went home at 4 and all was quiet afterwards. I hope to see you this weekend if you come in town.
