Menu Plan for the Week

Matt took the boys to camp this weekend for a Dads-n-Lads getaway. I cooked for no one, I did no laundry, I spent much needed, uninterrupted time with the Lord, and I ate a frozen pizza for dinner last night. Gross but true. Eh, it was a fun treat, and all I had to wash later was my plate. I’ll eat right the rest of the week. :)

I am happy to report that while all of my men were gone, this time I did not have to deal with any snakes.


Don’t know this story? Read about my Dads-n-Lads drama – 2009. {shudder}

‘Fess up! If you ever have any alone time and don’t have to feed anyone but yourself – what do you eat?  :)

    I abhor frozen pizza so it would not be that! I usually eat something that nobody else will eat like sauerkraut on a hot dog and potato salad.


  2. says

    Ugh, nothing terribly healthy here either. I’ll do a sandwich, cereal, maybe an egg or two (better than the others I suppose, though) or just whatever I can grab from the fridge. I’m so lazy like that!


  3. Rhonda says

    Definitely cold cereal (love Fiber One with Raisins)or canned soup and crackers. If I go out I bring home a Runza Salad:) The easier the better-very little wash up!

    Maybe the best part is no schedule also. Breakfast at 10:30, snack at 4 and supper at 8pm, it’s all good:) Glad you had a good weekend Laura!

    I cook a piece of wild-caught salmon in butter and cajun seasoning and lime juice and put it over lettuce and veggies from my garden. The salmon is so tasty and moist, no dressing needed, and no guilt.


  5. Jen says

    When cravings for my favorite junk foods of the past strike, I have been known to eat a frozen pizza or Dinty Moore beef stew. Yuck, I know. :)

    Hey, Laura, your link for Peanut butter honey toast takes you to the Italian pasta bake recipe. (I only clicked on it because I had to see if the ‘recipe’ was just peanut butter spread on toast and drizzled with honey) Apparently its more of an ‘Italian’ thing.

    Ha! What was I thinking when I linked that? Who knows. :)
