Menu Plan Monday

Wow, Monday again and life continues ticking along. The only thing I can say is thank goodness last week's crazy running around is done and this week is nice and quiet. Well, if you don't count the insane amount of baking I have to do, holiday activities with the boys and Christmas with my family which will almost certainly turn into an overnight trip. Luckily, I have 95% of my wrapping all done. I have a few things that should either bit sitting in my mailbox right now or that should be here in the next couple of days. I'm having a bit of a hard time with the holidays this year. Usually it's totally my favorite time of year, but this year I just don't feel like it's happening. I didn't even get enough boxes out of the laundry room to access the Christmas decorations or tree. When I look around all I see is boxes of stuff and it's driving me insane. I keep coming up with "plans" on how to tackle it, but my accountability partner seems to have vanished and well, I'm using that as an excuse, I guess. The truth is that I know only I can fix this/make changes and really procrastinating is just me being passive-aggressive with myself.

Well, step 1 is figuring out the meal plan for this week instead of "winging it." So, here we go:

Monday- BBQ Burgers (WW)
Tuesday- Mac & Cheese w/ Hamburger
Wednesday- Beef Stroganoff
Thursday- Quesadillas
Friday- Dinner w/ Family
Saturday- Pizza
Sunday- Chicken Taco Packets

So, there's our plan. I don't know how well we'll stick to it, but I'm sure going to try.

You're not alone in not "feeling it" this year. Due to my husband and I losing our jobs, apartment and our dog he just hasn't been in the mood. I still decided to decorate and I did manage to buy our teen a couple of things.
You have a delicious menu planned!
I’m so glad that my husband isn’t working on Christmas Eve and Christmas. He really needs the days off.
Here’s wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas!
