Meal plan vs. reality

This week mostly went according to the plan. I planned very simple things so that’s probably why. We ate dinner out Friday, Saturday and Sunday with Sunday being homemade food at my mom’s house. I feel lucky that I didn’t have to wash as much dishes.

I ordered groceries from InstaCart on Friday. I didn’t order any fresh meat this time for a few reasons. Last week I accidentally let some ground beef go bad because I didn’t get to cooking it in time. I didn’t want that to happen again.

I had a lot of meals in the freezer that I want to use, both homemade and store bought. Actually, there’s still a lot. I also tried to make a conscious effort to incorporate more vegetables and not have everything so meat focused because we ate a lot of meat last week.

Meal plan as written on Monday morning:

Monday: Boxed macaroni and cranberry pecan spinach salad

Tuesday: Falafel sandwiches

Wednesday: Chicken enchiladas from the freezer

Thursday: Spaghetti and chicken meatballs

Friday: Cheese board dinner

Saturday: Out for dinner

Sunday: Pancakes and eggs

What we actually ate:

Monday: Boxed macaroni and chicken Ceasar salad

Tuesday: Falafel sandwiches

Wednesday: Chicken enchiladas from the freezer

Thursday: Cranberry pecan spinach salad

Friday: Out for dinner, including Maggie. We had pizza at Blaze.

Saturday: Out for dinner, but Maggie stayed home with Paul’s mom. We had tacos.

Sunday: Dinner at my mom’s house. We’re having Italian meatballs, spaghetti and French bread.
