Our Weekly Meal Plan – November 22, 2015

Weekly Menu Plan May 2013

Using Plan To Eat has really helped streamline the meal planning process.  It has also save me so much time and frustration.  I have said before and will say it again, this is one ‘servant’ I am so glad I have employed. Their 30-day trial offer is a great way to test out the program while using it for a few weeks.  It may take some time to enter your recipes (though you do not have to do that right away), but once they are in, there is no need to do it over again.  After 2.5 years of using Plan To Eat most of my recipes are ones that were up in a long time ago, or automatically loaded by providing the internet address to a source of the recipe.

Simple Meal Planning - Plan to Eat

 

Yesterday we went over the river and through the woods, though not quite to Grandmother’s house.  The snow was even falling fairly well, though not drifting as it was too wet.  We met my parents in a town that is a bit over half-way for them so they could pick up Jack and take him home with them till Thanksgiving.  He was shaking with such excitement I was pretty sure he was levitating off the ground at certain points.

The reason he went to his Grandparent’s house is due to George having some oral surgery work done early in the week.  I was all prepared to take Jack with me, which would have been a test of my Supermom skills to keep his hands out of trouble and deal with an anxious/drugged-up George, or find a babysitter for that morning when my mom offered to keep him for a few days.  That may not seem so unusual of an offer except that they live several hours away and already have a house full of people at the moment.  We asked Jack what he thought … and the levitating began.  The smile on his face and the visible shaking with excitement were answer enough.

This morning I awoke thinking about the meal plan.  I made up our plan a few weeks ago, knowing that what I entered was not really what we were going to be eating.  However, I also knew that it is super easy to rearrange the meals to fit what would end up being our final plans for this week.  It took me longer the write the last two paragraphs than it did to rearrange the meals for this week.  Have I mentioned how easy Plan To Eat is?

With George having work in his mouth, he will not be able to chew or suck.  It also means us being gone from very early, with him not being able to eat breakfast, till after lunch.  That day is pretty well shot meal wise.  Soup it is.

Then comes the Thanksgiving Holiday.  There will be a lot of visiting family taking place.  I will make a few dishes in there for pitch-in, though nothing that I am going to plan out.  I am thinking of trying chocolate cherry brownies.  They sound really good in my head and I am pretty sure I can create a recipe for them.  Since it is good to test a recipe before offering it to others, I think I will try some Double Chocolate Cherry Zucchini Muffins for breakfast on Wednesday.  I will let you know how they go.
