Alright, Tracey, pull yourself together. You can do this.
Is it me or has my life gotten extremely crazy? Like more so than ever before. I mean, I have felt that way ever since becoming a mom 5 (almost) years ago but lately it seems like I really can't keep up. It's insane.
Although I manage to pull together some sort of meal most nights, I certainly need to meal plan. Again. I get that. But even the task of meal planning sometimes can take too long that I just don't do it. Here I am on a Tuesday realizing that there is NOTHING in our refrigerator to pull together a decent meal from. I need to make a trip to the grocery store ASAP so I figured I throw together a quick (uh huh, yeah right) meal plan.
Individual pizza play date. We are having some friends over to make individual pizzas. I think that I might just roast up some veggies and throw them on a mcmuffin and call it a day for myself. We ordered regular pizza last night (I totally forgot we were making pizzas for our play date today) since a friend was over from out of town. I regret every cheesy bite I took. I feel gross and bloated and like I need to detox myself. Crazy how cows milk cheese affects me so much now. Blech. I see a lot green juice in my near future today.
Eggplant Parmesan. I like to make up a bunch of eggplant to freeze left overs and throw on a sandwich for easy go to meals.
Vegan Pumpkin Mac N Cheese. I hope this is a hit, cause I have really been trying to find a vegan alternative to regular mac and cheese that my kids will like. Fingers crossed.
Block party. I'm bringing a side dish of hummus topped with cucumber, bell peppers, carrot shavings and goat cheese with pita chips.
I also want to make this summer hemp power salad to go along with something we are having or just for a lunch idea. Oh, it looks DIVINE!
Phew. I instantly feel better knowing I have some sort of plan in place for the next few days. At least for dinners. I'll be back on Sunday for next weeks plan!
