Keeping Up With...Food (Menu Plan 11/17 - 11/23)

Yikes!  Yet again last week went by in a blur of activity.  Between volunteering at the school, overtime for Adrian, watching a friend's son after school now and our normal schedule the days are flying by!  Throw in a little sickness and it's the weekend before I know what happened!  I hope to have more time to blog this week, lots of things to catch up on, other than just what we're eating.

I'm going to split my workouts out again starting this week because I want to talk about the 90 day TerraFit challenge that I'm doing so check back for that this week.

Last week I was doing pretty well following my meal plan until the end of the week.  I don't know what was going on in this area but every store was sold out of tortellini.  I am one of those crazy people that shop at 4-6 stores each week to get my groceries.  I went to Kroger & Giant Eagle early in the week and both were sold out.  I planned to go to Meijer, but that was hard because I had to start "Santa" shopping there this week so I had to go alone.  I just couldn't do it before dinner on Friday so we had left overs and bumped that meal to today.

This week is scheduled to be a little calmer than the past few weeks have been, but who knows how it will actually pan out.  We're already looking at a possible schedule change tomorrow due to a winter storm.  At least if what they say is coming actually comes & school is postponed or delayed, the boys will finally be able to play in the snow.

Here's what we're planning on eating this week.  I'm trying to do stuff I have on hand and freezer meals to keep the grocery bill low since it will be higher next week with Thanksgiving.  Plus I will need the room in my fridges and freezers!

Monday - Tequila Lime Turkey Chili - didn't get made this week
Tuesday - Asian Short Rib Tacos with Sriracha Grean Beans
Wednesday - Brinner!  Chicken Hashbrowns with eggs and grapefruit (Relish recipe)
Thursday - Bean Tortilla Soup (Relish recipe)
Friday - Leftovers/Freezer Meal - Adrian & AJ are going to a Blue Jackets game so I'm assuming they will eat there.
Saturday - Freezer Meal - I am gone all afternoon at a Zumba event
Sunday -  Pork Meatloaf (Relish recipe) - didn't get made this week

As always, I'm linking up with Laura at Mommy, Run Fast & Jill at Fitness, Health and Happiness.  Go check them out for some more yummy recipes!
