    I've been really bad about Menu planning this month. Last week:

    Roasted chicken with mashed potatoes and french cut green beans
    Waffles (which were horrible but I told Dh it wasn't a good recipe, he now believes me) and bacon
    New recipe with meatballs in a pan with sliced half cooked potatoes with a cream sauce. Excellent
    Leftover pizza from the freezer since I'm trying to use what we have
    Tonight was fried fish and a pack of frozen veggies since I was worn out from decorating cookies

    I'll work on this week's menu tomorrow

    Monday is my day to choose
    Tuesday is Dh day
    Thursday is DD day--she usually want Culver's (cheeseburgers) or Mexican. Once in a while Chinese
    Friday is usually fish or pizza night

    I have been awful about menu planning too! I have two things that have been lingering from past menus that I just haven't made: fajitas and steak. I've never cooked flank steak so it's still in the freezer intimidating me. haha

    I, too, will work on this week's menu tomorrow because my head hurts too much right now.

    Thanks Diedra!

    We had regular steak last night, NY strip, with potatoes and corn.

    I was buzzing around the house getting things organized or out of the house. Dh was going to the store early this evening so I had him pick up cheeseburgers for dinner. No cooking or clean up for me.

    No menu-planning this Week as I didn't have my usual Monday to cook.
    Monday was - spaghetti (had a sauce cooking in the crockpot)
    Tuesday was leftover chines fondue steak, so we made grilled cheese sandwiches out of that.
    No idea for the rest of the Week, maybe an omelet tonight.

    Finally sat down after looking into the freezer and then pulled out some recipes.

    M-Shredded Pork Salad
    W-Meatballs and Potato Casserole
    Th-Pizza (note to self not to forget to put french fries on top this time)
    F- Fried Chicken
    S Shrimp Pasta

    Next Week (because it's just as much work to do two weeks planning as it is one week. Might just as well get it done.)

    M-Egg Roll Stir Fry (or I might try a slow cooker recipe I was on Pinterest)
    W-Roast Chicken from Walmart
    Th-Teriyaki Beef Noodle Bowls
    F-Cheese Italian Alfredo Stuffed Shells (might have to make two batches since LC22 will be here and she isn't fond of Alfredo sauce, that's ok, she'll help)
    S-Steak and Hashbrowns
    Sun- (LC22 will help decide for the weekend)

    I was informed by DH that we had a visit from a mouse in the kitchen near the stove. Went to work and started cleaning everything. This was not what I wanted to do!!! Just a couple more things to clean and I will be done. Just really needed a break. Once I am done I will straighten the rest of the house to keep it maintained. If time permits I have a couple of bills to pay. DH and I are not having a good day together so we are staying out of each others way. He hears and interprets what I say as something I am not saying at all. grrrrr....bite my tongue and walk away.

    No problem about the mouse, he will not be stirring soon.
