Well, last week was kind of a bust. I ended up spending the second half of it sick. Sick enough to call into work one day. Meh. Yes, there’s a pandemic, but regular bugs still make the rounds, especially when you have a toddler who hasn’t quite mastered washing their hands yet.
I didn’t get much done and spent the weekend resting. We did finally smoke wings as we planned this Sunday and my teens and husband were quite happy. As for me,I was having flashbacks to when I worked in a bar in the 90s (I made so many wings I couldn’t look at them) and just wasn’t feeling it by the time they were done and I was still off from earlier in the week. We’ll do them again in the future and I’ll give them an honest try instead of just side-eye. I generally like wings; it happens.
I had a bowl of cereal. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
How did your week go? Did you stick to your menu or did your plans go awry, like ours?
What’s on your menu this week? Do you need a printable to help you plan? Here you go!
Here’s what we’ll be having this week:
Monday: Chicken Soup and salad (those of us who are having carbs will have noodles)
Tuesday: Burrito Bowls yep, using that Aldi’s carnitas (cauliflower rice for the low-carbers)
Wednesday: Clean Out Refrigerator Night
Thursday: Chicken Cordon Bleu Bake with braised cabbage
Friday: That not quite chicken schwarma that I plan on writing up soon, green beans with grape tomatoes, and rice /cauliflower rice.
Saturday: Homemade Pizza – the low-carbers will get chicken breasts pounded thin and cooked as their “crusts” they might tolerate cauliflower rice, but the crusts are another story. Here are the recipes for our homemade crust and our sauce
Sunday: Pulled Pork over salads (back to smoking Sundays) I spray it with a mixture of 1/2 apple cider vinegar and 1/2 apple cider every hour for the first 3 hours to help form a nice bark. (Also, I’m in the best unspoken, socially-distant “food off” with my neighbors, I send over smoked meat and they send over dessert). I figure if I’m going to be running the the smoker, I might as well fill it, right? Also, I’m not on that low-carb train, so more for me and the little ones.
