I hope everyone had a great weekend. I slept late all weekend. I woke up around 9am yesterday and it threw me off completely. I'm an early to bed, early to rise kinda person. The only time I sleep so much is when I'm sick or totally exhausted. I'm definitely not sick, but I think all those sleepless nights have finally caught up with me. I've been living on coffee & stress for too long.
DS had a runny nose all weekend (he's much better today), so no dinner out for us. I got carry out for him & I ate some leftover roti & curry. I know he's not sick (probably allergies), because he's been nagging me about vacation for days now...lol. He doesn't know that there won't be any more vacations with the ex. I'm hoping that we can move soon, so I can hopefully figure out vacation before summer's over. We're very easy to please when it comes to vacation. Just take us to the beach 🏖 🏊🩱🍹(vacation isn't complete without a drinkie poo 😉😂). It's my happy place!
On to the menu planning. We're eating light this week, so here goes:
Monday : Pesto chicken casserole, baked potatoes & salad
Tuesday : Grilled chicken, potato salad, baked beans salad, carrot pineapple salad and BYO (build your own) greens salad.
Wednesday : Same as Monday
Thursday : Same as Tuesday
Friday : Carry out for DS and I'll eat leftovers
Breakfasts : Breakfast sausage, omelets, bagels, carrot gingerbread muffins, toast, cereal or oatmeal
Lunch : Salad with protein from the freezer
Dessert : Haagen Dasz ice cream (I bought a box at Sams. I couldn't resist😁)
There's always a variety of fresh fruit, veggies & salad fixings available
My muffins didn't turn out too well. They're a bit too dense, but fine otherwise. I was out of sync from sleeping so late.
I bought 3 packages of Johnsonville (our preferred brand) breakfast sausage when Kroger had it on sale last week. Then cooked it with onions & peppers when I got home. I always do this, then freeze portions for easy consumption.
I don't know about anyone else, but I don't care much for cooking when it's hot. I'm thinking of having a grilling menu next week. Grilled Chicken, Italian sausage and maybe beef foil pockets. Then just add salads on the side. Easy peasy. Ice cream's on sale everywhere, so we could probably have banana splits and milkshakes for dessert.
I need to go some errands in a little while.
Have a wonderful week peeps!
