Weekly Menu Planning - Take 2!

So I'm still trucking along with this weekly menu planning - although I'm not very good at it.  I think last week, I actually stuck to my "plan" 1 time.  Maybe 2.  Here's a go for this week (based on what we have in the house):

Wed (tonight) - Pork Tenderloin, starch, veggie

We ate Pork, potatoes and brocolli!  Woohoo!  We're little piggies and ate the entire 1.23 lbs of pork tenderloin.  Tuna Helper tomorrow!

Thurs - Leftover Pork, starch, veggie

Mac and Cheese.  Husband found some leftovers in the fridge (who knows how long they were there!).

Fri - Possibly pizza.  If not, Spaghetti with ground Sausage

Spaghetti with ground sausage!

Sat - Leftovers (if Spaghetti)

Pizza from Papa John's!!  Used coupon code VISA06 to score free cheesy bread with a purchase of a Large Specialty pizza (thanks Retail Me Not!)

Sun - Pork Tips, starch veggie

Mon - Leftovers?

Tues - Tuna Helper with added frozen peas

This is last week's fiasco HERE.  Even though I didn't stick to my plan, I'm using the stuff up in my cabinets and being nourished!  

Also, my husband is not home Tuesday and Thursday nights.  So I'm never going to make a "good dinner" those nights.  For the most part, our kids eat what we eat and if they don't want to - then they don't eat.  A lot of Tuesdays and Thursdays, I'll make them their own thing and eat cereal - just because I don't want to cook or wash dishes if I don't have to.  June Cleaver I am not.

I never make proper dinners when my hubby is working late/out of town either...

When my husband is out of town, forget about it. I'll still usually make something for the girls, but for me, it's a pb&j with a big ole' glass of wine!

I know this isn't some brilliant idea - but over the weekend I discovered that if I take my apple corer and punch little circles out of the PB sandwiches, my kids eat them all! If I just slice them, they'll both eat maybe half a sandwich - with my apple corer method, they eat 3 sandwiches between them!!!!
