Menu Plan Monday Aug 11th

When things go astray I often like to say “oh the best laid plans of mice and men…

I actually had no meal plan last week and so I didn’t do a post about it.  But on Sunday I had sat down and started looking for new recipes for this week’s dinners.  I had to take a break to attend a birthday party.  By the time we got home it was time to feed the boys, start re-heating our leftovers, get the boys cleaned and in bed.  After which I would sit down and write my post for our meal plan.

About the time Sid was falling asleep the power goes out.  In the whole house.  On the whole street. In the whole neighborhood and zip code.

This completely stressed Ian out and gave Sid his second wind.  I had to sit outside in the hall with the doors open to both rooms until they fell asleep.  Or I could have let them get up five hundred times and put them back to bed 501 times.

They are finally asleep and I figure I can start writing.  I go to my computer and the battery has died.  So I just went to bed.  No big deal I will write when I get to work on Monday.  Because I just know you are all waiting on the balls of your feet to hear what I plan to eat for dinner.

That pesky thing called work got in the way.  So here it is on Tuesday and I am just getting around to tell you what we will be having to eat.

Better late than never.  Something else I always say…

These are all new recipes that I wanted to try, so we will be having a lot of chicken this week.  Which I try to mix it up, but they all sounded good.
