Menu Plan Monday Nov 17th

How closely o you follow your meal plan?

I would say most weeks I follow it with the exception of Sundays.  Although sometimes I end up switching days, but I still make all the meals I had planned for that week.  Sometimes things don’t go according to the plan though.

Last Wednesday I planned on making this baked chicken and Mac & Cheese.  As it turned out I ended up with a migraine that afternoon.  However, the kids still need to be feed.  I looked at the baked chicken recipe and it was sooo easy! So I was still able to make it, even though I was dying.  I did change the recipe from using yogurt to a mix of cream cheese and sour cream.  Everyone agreed the chicken was wonderful.  Instead of making mac & cheese from scratch, my husband made some from a box.  I know, I know, Kraft isn’t the same, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

Seriously though, the chicken was so easy and very yummy!


Here’s the boys in our ice storm last week.
