This was a SUPER quick picture snapped on the conveyer belt at Aldi. Here is what I bought, half and half, 3 half gallons of organic whole milk, 2 packages of goldfish, 4 bagged caesar salads, grapes, egg noodles, 2 packages of ground turkey, 1 package of organic chicken breasts, 1 package of frozen mixed vegetables, 1 can of cream of chicken soup, 2 packages of butter, grass fed ground beef, and taco shells I am sure I got a few other things, but I can’t remember them!
Dinner |linguini, tomato sauce and chicken
Dinner | tacos
Dinner | chicken noodle casserole *this was a new recipe, and I am not sure I loved it. I think I would make it again, and leave the mixed veggies out and serve a vegetable on the side. The creamy chicken and noodles were delicious! I just don’t always care for veggies mixed in with
Dinner |Rotisserie chicken, rice, salad and bread (provided by my in-laws!)
Dinner |take out pizza from a local coal fired pizza place (in-laws for the win again here!)
Dinner |Chinese delivery (I had planned on leftovers, but then had a hankering for some chinese food)
Dinner | ?? Maybe takeout, or something easy at home.
So this was a totally crazy week! Mr. Bird was out of town traveling for work monday-friday. His parents came in to help for 3 nights. With my new job and still adjusting to my schedule, this was not my finest meal planning week. But hey, I made an effort and packed a lunch every day. So that’s somewhat of a win!
What did you eat this week? Have you tried any new recipes?
How do you cope with a busy week and meal planning?
