Menu Plan

Hubby heads out of town today for a week or so. Probably 2 weeks or so.

I'm actually looking forward to a little quiet time! Whee!!!  My first thought was to have a girls night but then I thought NO because I really want to just ditch the booze while he's out of town. I won't drink alone so I might as well embrace the time, right? Right!

This is actually good for my eating habits in that I can make WHAT I want, the way I want! And if I should happen to eat something that makes me not so very happy (in other words, a bad food choice!) then it's no one's fault but mine.

Stop playing the blame game!

I anticipate that IF I cook as much as I'd like to be doing, I'll be able to meal prep and freeze some future meals in the process which would make me a very happy camper!

I'm hoping to hit up Costco at some point this week for a few things such as chicken thighs, chicken breast and a small amount of veggies but I might just hold out til next weekend. We'll see how the week plays out! If I go, I'd like to keep the bill under $100 (eggs, chicken, chicken, guac, lettuce, tomatoes, mushrooms, etc.)

Saturday - Hubby and I hit up our favorite Italian restaurant for a date night. Uhm, we had date night on Friday too but that didn't include food. We skipped the usual rounds of cocktails and actually shaved about $25 to $30 off the bill and still had leftovers to bring home.

Sunday - them frozen pizzas I had picked up on Saturday ... I just don't want them hanging around the freezers for long!

Monday - single girl status! BLT Inspired Chicken Salad! Wheee!

Tuesday - Taco Tuesday - not that anyone would really play along with me but I'm planning on making a Taco Bowl and freezing the rest of the taco meat for future meals ... riced cauliflower will be the base of the bowl ... providing the lighting is good, I'll be sharing the recipe!

Wednesday - Shallot Chicken! With green beans! Or broccoli! And again, I think I'm going to freeze the rest for future meals ... will share as well! *I may have my son in law here for the night and possible tomorrow*

Thursday - I'm leaving this night open ... I have a few things I'd like to make and commit to, such as these BLT Boats or this Asian Chicken Salad. Or, I could just eat the leftovers 😆 Either way, I'm quite certain that I won't starve to death. The son in law, if he's here, just might!

Friday - I might see if one girlfriend wants to come over for dinner and enjoy a nice bottle of Saratoga Water with me ... fancy schmancy and all that ... looking to try a new recipe with BBQ Beef and Bacon stuffed in a baked tater ... we'll see ... and yes, that water is a little pricey BUT cheaper than WINE!

What are YOU planning this week?

Looking forward to sharing with some of these GREAT Parties ... go check them out!
