A Meal Plan & A Confession

Sunday Meal Plan and a Confession

Confession Time

Hi guys! I have a confession to make – I’ve been super lazy with my posting lately, I’m not saying that I don’t enjoy posting or that I don’t want to post, just that I’ve been lazy. Lately, every time I’ve sat down to type, I’ve gotten distracted by one thing or another, time passes, and nothing has been written. For whatever reason, I haven’t been able to keep my head in the game.

Last month, I thought the reason was because I hadn’t made my usual monthly editorial planner. When that happens I tend to get overwhelmed with ideas (not a problem for some), and when I get overwhelmed and have no plan, I end up essentially throwing in the towel and wandering Facebook (feel free to like me on my Baby Doodah! FB page) or going through my email. Both pretty easy tasks, but nothing that helps get me closer to accomplishing my goals.

So,if you’ve been wondering why you haven’t seen a lot of new, fresh content, this is why. I’m sorry about that! I haven’t been absent, I login to Baby Doodah! several times a day, adjusting things behind the scenes, just haven’t been as great about sharing new posts. I’m hoping that by coming here, confessing to all of you, that I will get my head on straight and WORK.

I hope you’ll all be coming along for the ride!! I have some new and fresh ideas brewing and I want to get more professional and focused with my writing. It feels really good to come clean to all of you! Thanks for listening (reading)!

Now for that Meal Plan

We’re traveling out to Syracuse on Friday to go see The Tenderloins (yay! CANNOT wait! We love their show, Impractical Jokers and are stoked to see them live) and spending the night. We likely won’t return until late Saturday, so we won’t need meals for those two days. Hopefully, this will lend itself to a cheaper grocery week.

Sunday: Chicken Shawarma (this is a carry-over)

Monday: Mexican Beef Bowl (crock-pot meal)

Tuesday: Burgers on Romaine & Corn on the Cobb

Wednesday: Spaghetti Squash Bake

Thursday: Chicken Spanakopita Meatballs (this is a new one, and we’re so excited to try it)

Friday: Traveling

Saturday: Traveling

    I struggle with cooking meals for the family and tend to cook for the babies while my husband and I graze. I always get the same things at the store and make weekly! So tired of the same old stuff. This post has me thinking to try to recipes and make meal plans and shopping lists to go with!

      Hi Amy! We definitely couldn’t cook the same things over and over again in our house – my husband is too picky. I’ll be honest, though… I wish that we COULD do that on some weeks.

      When we sit down to make a meal plan, and aren’t rushed… we actually enjoy doing it together and coming up with new, fun recipes. Thanks so much for visiting!

    Ooh Mexican beef bowls sounds delicious!! Do you have a recipe? I hope you have a lovely trip!

    I have a confession to make, I don’t make Meal Plans. I admire those who do and dream of being that organized. I can totally relate to being distracted and the next thing I know, I have gotten nothing done!
    So glad you shared with us at Merry Monday!

      Hi Shirley! Distraction is the bane of my existence. lol Super dramatic, but true. Yeah, making a meal plan can take a little organization, but it’d definitely worth it, for me. Keeps me sane! 🙂 Thank you for stopping by!
