Meal Plan

Once again last week’s plan did not go as planned. First of all I forgot to defrost the turkey breast I had planned on making. So, I had to figure out another dinner for that night. Secondly, we ate dinner one night at my in laws house. So, two of the meals never got made.

I also had planned on making several desserts and only one got made and it was a cinnamon roll recipe that I have made many times before. I just did not have much time for extra baking and cooking. 

The whole idea of a menu plan is it is just a plan. It gives me an idea and plan for each night and usually I stick to it.  But some days life happens and we need to adjust. Last week, I adjusted.

I thought about moving the turkey to a dinner this week, but when I looked at my week I realized it would not be a good week to fit that in. I am trying several new recipes and tweaking a few others to make them a little healthier. 

Once again I hope to get a few desserts made and also make some cookies to freeze, but I will have to see how my week goes.
