So, I realize it’s a little silly, doing a menu plan–typically done at the beginning of the week–at the end of the week. But hey–I have an excuse. It’s finals week. Over the weekend, I spent about a million hours working on a paper. Then Monday I worked on it from 8:00 am until 3:50 pm, a mere 10 minutes before it was due. However… it was turned in on time. Then, it was a mad rush to work on the next assignment for five hours that night, a website for a nonprofit. Tuesday had me staring at the same. stinking. computer screen in the library for 11 hours–yes, you read that right–until I was done. My sweet husband picked me up and took me to dinner to celebrate being done with my SECOND TO LAST semester of grad school!! Yay!
The rest of the week has been a blur of working a bit, watching tv, cooking, reading, and generally doing whatever sounds fun at the time. But now it’s time to get on track. I want to have fun this Christmas break, but I also need to be somewhat productive. For me… that starts with making a menu plan so I can get what we need at the grocery store and not buying everything that looks yummy. So… here we go. 🙂
Monday: well let’s see, that was a tasty dinner of leftovers in the library. awesome.
Tuesday: gotta love some tilapia at Red Lobster
Wednesday: real cooking! Chipotle Sweet Potato Soup and Pomegranate Kale Orzo. amazing.
Thursday: Christmas group party! woohoo.
Friday: Asian Turkey Burgers and Thai Veggie Burgers. Burger overload. can’t wait. 🙂
Saturday: Chinese food feast with friends! bringing sweet & sour chicken.
Sunday: Mom’s lasagna. always the best!
