monday morning I sat down with some cookbooks and decided our dinners for the week. my grocery list was then based off the menu.
monday: grilled chicken breast, baked potato, salad
tuesday: spaghetti with meatballs
wednesday: corny chicken wraps
thursday: pancakes and sausage
friday: black bean burgers with chips and hummus
we got through wednesday and then my wonderful father in law arrived to stay through the weekend and help on the house. I couldn't serve him pancakes, and I definitely couldn't serve him meatless burgers. so instead we grilled out pork chops on thursday, went to firehouse pizza on friday and I learned that I need to think about WHO I'm feeding when I'm doing my meal planning. as in, while I can force my husband to eat anything he may be skeptical about (and, to his credit, he does and usually likes it), I need to be a good hostess. especially to a kind man who has taken off 2 days of work to help hang siding.
