Menu Plan Monday ~ August 18th

Things are going to be interesting this week. Daniel is closing at work Wednesday through Saturday so I'll be on my own. I guess I'll be doing a lot of frozen/canned meals or something quick and easy for one person. I've been making a lot of egg based things. I tried french toast for the first time in a long time yesterday. It was yummy! What do you call your toast with the egg in the center? I believe I've always heard it as a Bull's Eye. Or a Bird's Nest... What do you call it? Regardless, I made those and it turned out really well. Then of course there's the old standbys of egg sandwiches and eggs and toast.
It's been interesting. Since we have started buying groceries versus picking up fast food, not only have I lost weight, but I also don't have a desire for fast food as much any more. Instead of wondering what I'm going to pick up, I'm thinking about what I'm going to eat. The structure has been really nice. I'm liking it. Though, I have to be honest, the plans that you see aren't necessarily what we have. We follow for the most part, but sometimes, it's on a different day. Oh well. One of the nicest things is that we have food in the house! When I get hungry, I don't have to get up and leave! Saturday, I wanted something sweet and for the first time in my adult life, I had the ingredients for cookies, without making a run to the store! It was wonderful! Made me right proud of myself! Anyway, without further ado.... my menu.
Monday:
Tacos! My parents, brother, and niece will be joining us! I'm excited!
Tuesday:
A Home style Bake. I forget which kind, chicken something.
Wednesday-Saturday:
I'm going to wing it... We have Ramen noodles, Ravioli, sandwich meat, eggs, frozen pizza. And the list continues. Who knows, maybe I'll join my parents or in-laws for dinner one night.
Do you menu plan? If so, join us here!

When all else fails, breakfast is a GREAT dinner. I love my griddle, there are only the 3 of us, so you can cook fairly fast!
