Menu for the Week

Does anyone else have days when they just don’t want to be the “mom” anymore? Those days when we don’t have to be the responsible one and take care of everyone else? I’m having one of those days today. Today is one of those days when I don’t want to be the mom. I’m not feeling the best and would love nothing more than to crawl into a warm bed and hibernate.

Unfortunately instead I need to make sure my mom hat is on tight and plan my menu, grocery shop and run errands this evening. My son now has school on Monday nights and my husband is working tonight so I guess I’ll put my big girl pants on and stop whining.

As far as the menu, I’m taking it pretty easy this week with the exception of Saturday. On Saturday we are having some friends over for a turkey dinner so that will be a little bit more work. Typically I start my menu on Sunday, but yesterday we were at a football party so I didn’t need to plan anything for dinner. That’s why you’ll only see six items on the menu.

  • Fend for yourself night  
  • Lasagna, salad, corn, garlic bread 
  • Leftovers 
  • Baked Chicken, strawberry salad, mashed potatoes, glazed carrots, biscuits 
  • Dinner out 
  • Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry relish, corn, dinner rolls

 Typically I wouldn’t serve chicken and turkey in the same week but I just need easy this week and nothing is easier than baked chicken!

That’s what is on my non-eventful menu. What’s on yours?

I’ll be posting this at I’m an Organizing Junkie.



  1. When you said you were having a day where you just didn't want to be a mom anymore... then asked if any of us ever had those days?... Did you see me jumpin' up & down & waving both hands in the air? ... ummm, yeah... that's me.... still jumpin' & wavin'...

    I haven't been menu planning... but I have been menu recording... does that count? I'm hoping that by keeping track of what we have been eating will help make it easier to plan what to make for menus. Does that make sense? Eventually I hope to get there.

  2. I so had one of those days this week - thanks for making me feel less guilty about it.
