Meal Planning Can Be Boring

Happy Friday Everyone! the rain is clearing out but it's on the windy side today. Looks like some decent weather in the days to come and some pretty nice temperatures. Is it safe to put away the winter clothes yet? My daughter is working today so it's just me and the pups. Both are sleeping side by side on the loveseat and look perfectly content. I just finished looking at the local supermarket ad to see what's on sale this week. Sadly, nothing much. I'm trying to make a menu for the weeks dinners but they didn't have anything on sale that struck my fancy so I'm at a loss. I go through cycles where I get tired of almost everything. Actually my goal this week should be to make meals out of what I have in the freezer instead of adding more and spending money I really don't need to spend. It should be just a quick trip to the store for milk, bread and eggs. Maybe I'll make a game of it and see what I can come up with! Other than meal planning and some daily household chores there isn't much going on here today. I actually read some of my book this morning while I had my first cup of coffee. Now I'm caffeinated and can sit here for awhile and chat while I work on cup #2. What's new and exciting with you today?

I will be running some errands this morning and that will be the extent of my excitement.

I'm glad the rain has cleared out. Your pups sound precious sleeping side by side. I get that way with food too. Nothing appeals. It's time to find new ways to make old meals.

@playertwo I hope you found something good to eat. You know Mountain Dew will rot out your gut, don't you? My psych professor told me that. I never drank it.

Making a game of those meal ideas sounds like a good way to go. It is sunny and warmer here, so that is nice.

Mom and i tried to meal plan yesterday, for last night and tonight.and we bought what we needed. But then she wasnt hungry for dinner last night, so it got switched and last nights is now tonights.. even though we both already ate after she got home from work. Lol. We almost always have to go shop for meats. As we buy as we go, since we dont always know what we want or know who's going to be here for dinner besides us too. Etc.

Happy Friday!!! I always try to use up everything in my freezer before buying new. I won't mention our weather, but we did play tennis, am in the process of doing laundry (it never ends), and going out to a French restaurant in Boca Raton tonight for our Friday date night. I can't decide what to wear!!!

It's Friday, It's bright and sunny out. I had a weird dream, but when do I not? Hmm, let's see. Oh, well it's dinner out night so that's something to look forward to. I got cashout on one of my sites, which is always nice. Otherwise? Nope, not much new.

I hope to get a list done and shop late today, Saturday. I like looking at the posts others make to come up with yummy ideas. When in doubt we do a breakfast meal or some frozen food. Not the healthiest, but fast. As for clothes, I have been wearing capris this week.

Nothing excited me today too hot here, lazy to move.

Staying inside mostly as it is windy and chilly here. I would hang onto those winter clothes a little longer to be safe.
