In an effort to be a whole lot more organized this year, and because everyone is always posting what delicious food they make, here is what I have been serving my family for the past week. I also envision this being a detailed account of how I fail miserably at meal planning when life gets too busy. But hey, it’s real life. Speaking of real life, I am not and never will be a food blogger. If I ever were to post food pictures for you, I apologize in advance for how awful they are.
- Sunday: Sundays are for slow-cooked meals, so I pulled mine out and made Shredded Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches. Holly made Easy Chocolate Eclair Squares for the family as well. There were no complaints from anyone. I love when that happens!
- Monday: Monday saw me laid up in bed with a nasty chest cold that had me sleeping for 20 out of the 24 hours. If the family ate, I have no idea what it was.
- Tuesday: Dance plus a cross-country meet plus still recovering from yesterday put a damper on what I was planning to cook. Leftovers all around!
- Wednesday: I did have every intention of cooking today, until I realized that Connor had a spaghetti dinner, and Jim would be at a business dinner. Holly ate before I got home, so it was more leftovers. Thank goodness the recipe makes a lot, and I doubled it.
- Thursday: Did I say thank goodness for leftovers? Not so much anymore after a nasty case of food poisoning made me regret eating those leftovers. I did not eat a thing and have no idea what anyone else ate.
- Friday: Rice. Tonight I had rice. It was about the only thing that sounded edible. The kids and Jim fended for themselves yet again. Good thing they enjoy cereal so much.
- Saturday: Since I made absolutely nothing I was planning to make throughout the week, the sky is the limit on what we have tonight. I imagine it will be fairly plain, as my stomach is still a bit tender from this week.
What was for dinner at your house this week?
Well, you had good intentions. You certainly can’t be expected to cook when you are sick. Kids and hub survived. There’s always next week.
Oh, my kids are great in that regard. Mom doesn’t want to cook or can’t cook? Cereal it is. Or sandwiches. It makes it a little too easy to skip out on making dinner.
I’m going to have to check out those eclairs! I hope this week is much better for you.
They were so good and so easy. Holly was able to make the entire recipe without any questions or help from me.
You did have bad week. A cold and then food poisoning. I’m impressed that you even took the time to list everything out. Hope you feel better this week in all ways. Take care of yourself!
I spent a LOT of time in bed this week. LOL! There wasn’t much else to do other than read and play on the computer.
Sounds like you had kind of a horrible week of health! Hope you’re feeling better now!
I’m definitely going to try those buffalo chicken sandwiches when I can cook again. My aunt bought me a slow cooker as a housewarming gift and I’ve been wondering what I could make with it that I’d *really* like. These sound like just the ticket!
They were good. Unfortunately, they were my last meal before I really got sick. I know it wasn’t that, but my stomach does twinge a bit at the thought of buffalo chicken right now. The family loved them though, so I say go for it!
