Ever have one of those weeks? *sigh*
The Plan: Turkey & Dumplings
What We Had: Spaghetti with homemade sauce from the freezer
Why?: We had some unexpected (but happy they came by!!) company. I was more interested in spending time with them than worrying about dinner. So after they left to go home and get their own dinner, I realized it was already 6:00 p.m. It was faster to grab some spaghetti sauce from the freezer, thaw it out and heat it up while some noodles boiled on the stove, than to make turkey & dumplings. First time recipes take me longer.
The Plan: Waffles & Oranges
What We Had: Cereal
Why?: I had a migraine. I get pretty frequent migraines, but most are mild and OTC meds work just fine. My dr & I are on the same page about keeping me OFF prescription meds as long as OTC meds continue to work. I also go through periods of time where migraines can be more or less frequent. I suppose I had one coming. I didn't get hardly any in December despite hosting dinner for my husband's entire family. The particular migraine I had last night was not mild. I was in bed before 7:00 p.m. and couldn't walk without excruciating pain. Good news though: I'm starting to feel better!
So, here's to Wednesday! May it be bright and productive even though we are not having Wednesday's meal either. LOL I already have out the stuff from Monday's original dinner and I don't want it to waste, so I'm making turkey & dumplings tonight. I find that a meal plan is a great tool, one of the best you can have in a kitchen, but it helps when it's flexible and contains a few easy meals that can be manipulated to suit the cook's personal needs for the day.
