Menu Monday (on Tuesday)

Here I am, late again! Spring has almost sprung around here and my mind is going in a million different directions. It's so exciting, but so busy at the same time. Should I just resign myself to the fact that I'm an intermittent blogger, or keep beating myself up over it every time I realize I've been remiss in my duties? I'll let you know what I decide. In the meantime, here's my menu for this week.

Monday - leftover night!
Tuesday - Beef and broccoli stirfry
Wednesday - bbq chicken in the crockpot & spaghetti squash
Thursday - pork chops with creamy dijon sauce (spaghetti squash)
Friday - dinner at our neighbors
Saturday - ham roast
Sunday - homemade pizza

I'm a little at a loss for sides this week. The veggies in my fridge/pantry pretty much consist of broccoli and a few squash. There's plenty of yummy corn in the freezer...but that's not exactly on the low-carb plan. But then again, I'm not sure if I'm exactly on the low-carb plan still...so we'll see. Life's a jumble right now!

I've got water kefir brewing (I LOVE the stuff!!), sourdough going and a freezer stocked with homemade burritos for Hubby. He wanted them for when he gets home from work (about 3:30) and he's hungry (he doesn't always get to take a lunch). He says they're better than the frozen ones he wanted me to buy :) Progress!! He also said I could make PB&J sandwiches for him to take for lunch, as long as I used white bread. He's doing me a favor and using all the jam I have in the freezer :) Even more progress! Bit-by-bit I will clean up his diet.

Anyway, that's my menu. For more Menu Monday posts, visit OrgJunkie.

Oh what a week. I really need to change some things in my life. I'm increasingly stressed out and really want to spend my time at home...but I can't yet! Ugh.

Anyway, on to the menu!

Monday - homemade pizza (we didn't eat it this weekend)
Tuesday - pulled pork (from the freezer) on homemade buns with rutabaga french fries.
Wednesday - crockpot sausage soup
Thursday - homemade beef-a-roni
Friday - dinner at our friends house
Saturday - oven fried chicken with rutabaga/turnip au gratin & roasted asparagus
Sunday - stir fried chicken and fried "rice" (really cauliflower :)

I'm hoping to have a few minutes to get my act together and get the rest of the 28-Day Challenge update out to you guys. Happy Wednesday!
