MPM or Saturday...whatever (4/26-5/3) I went on hiatus.

Was it a good idea?

Um...NO! We spent way too much money eating out because of my lack of planning.

But I won't lie - I did enjoy not cooking for a while.

Then I logged into the bank account and nearly died from a coronary. It wasn't a pretty sight, and I'm still mad at myself for it.

It is what it is. I can't go back. I just have to fix things now and move forward. It's the only way. Live and learn (and remember the nights I didn't cook!)

My vacation is over...back to reality. So, here is my menu for the next week. I'm starting with tomorrow's meal instead of Monday simply because I needed to get started ASAP!

Monday ~ Spaghetti and garlic bread

Tuesday ~ Mostaccioli Casserole (from my freezer) (If that link doesn't work correctly for you, try this one instead)

Wednesday ~ Breaded Chicken Tenders and wild rice

Thursday ~ Meatloaf and mashed potatoes

Friday ~ Homemade Pizza

Sunday ~ Leftovers or Chili (from the freezer) with rice

  1. Your menu looks great! I always hate when I don't stick to my plan and we eat out. We spend so much money doing that! It is good at the time, until you see the bill!! Oh well, like you said live and learn and move on!

    Have a great week.

  2. Ok why do I read these menu plans at lunch, it makes me sooo hungry. Great menu!
