This week's menu plan

I'm off my game this week. The holiday threw me off completely. I actually thought that today was Thursday too. I knew that we'd be out for Easter, so I decided to cook & bake on Saturday. I had this grand plan to make a chicken roll & chicken caprese, but we all know about those best laid plans. I got the chicken cooked for the roll, diced the butternut and discovered it was no good. Ugh, I can't make chicken roll without butternut and I didn't have any more left. So I decided to just keep the cooked chicken in the fridge until I could buy another butternut. I then decided not the make the caprese chicken either. I just wasn't feeling it. I did make pumpkin muffins though. So here's what happened this week: 

Monday : Easter leftovers - I just added some veggies

Tuesday : I made a big pot of fajita chicken (can't believe we were out), refried beans & pico and we made nachos with it. Easy peasy. I also made gingerbread waffles last night

Wednesday : Finally made it to the produce market, so chicken roll and leftover veggies. 

Thursday : Leftovers buffet. 

Friday : Italian sausage with onions & peppers on a roll/bun, potato salad, baked beans OR I might just eat more leftovers (there's plenty) and DS can have a burger & fries. 

Saturday/Sunday : Dine out 

The falafel was a huge hit. We still have some left over. The downside. I normally buy the pita pockets at Meijer, but since I was already at Sams last week, I decided to just buy pita there. Big mistake. When I tried to use the pita a few days later, it was all moldy. I was so upset. Thankfully, I always keep tortillas, so I just make falafel wraps. 

We have lots of food to eat, so it's an eating down the freezer & leftovers kinda week for me. I have a good menu plan for next week and already have all the ingredients. I'll move the caprese to next week. 

I'm in a slump. I have lots of blog posts written in my but just not in the mood to type. I still need to type my numbers post. I have the numbers all ready, but I just can't bring myself to get it done. I don't know why. I think I need a 'pick me up'. Maybe some chocolate 

Have a great evening everyone!


  1. I was relating to all your thoughts and some of your actions. Then, I got to the last sentence and realized we are alike, down to the chocolate thoughts.

    1. Chocolate makes everything better I hope your week gets better.

  2. Sounds like a delicious menu. Fajita chicken is one of my favorites. That's frustrating on the pita bread. Have a great day!!

    1. Thank you Lori! I make my fajita chicken in the instant pot & use it for all things mexican - one of our favorite cuisines. I'll be buying pita pockets at Meijer again in future. No Sams pita for me.

  5. Could you give us the fajita chicken recipe, please. Tuesday is Mexican night for us and I haven't found a great fajita chicken recipe yet. Thanks.
    PS I love reading about all your deals.


Meal Plan Monday

I'm so not in the mood to figure out meals for the week, so I've made an easy menu. Besides, who feels like cooking during summer.  ...
