Meal Plan Monday!

Sharing is caring!

Well, this week, the Mama has to have oral surgery….again. Last Tuesday, we had a scare where Hubby and Sonny had to rush me to the hospital at 2 in the morning. The pain was unbearable and my whole mouth felt like I was on fire. Turns out, I have a gum infection and after the dramatics at the dentist on Friday, I have to get a root canal to boot! Boy, that was a fun birthday week! Well, I have to make a meal plan where I can basically make most of it monday(my surgery is Tuesday) and just heat it up in the oven or microwave. I think by Thursday or Friday I should be back to normal, so the meals will reflect that.

Monday: Chicken fried rice
Tuesday: Baked Macaroni and Cheese with side of green peas
Wednesday: Erin’s crockpot stuffed cabbage
Thursday: Mashed potato buffet: beef gravy, shredded cheese, caramelized onions, etc.
Friday: Mexican Pizza! Yum!
Saturday: Leftovers night
Sunday: Dinner out! My mouth should feel better by then :o)

Soup of the week: egg drop soup(again)
Bread of the week: Wheat
Dessert of the Week: Angel food cake with macerated strawberries

    I hope you feel better, but that mashed potato buffet sounds heavenly – and should be easy on your mouth, too!

    If I were a good cook, I’d offer to come help out! However, my ‘specialities’ are baked ziti and new to my specialty list, crockpot pot roast. DH loves my pot roast and his mom had some on Saturday and loved it too! I had to toot my own horn there LOL

    MamaMilty, thank you! I know if I stay organized, we’ll avoid DH ordering pizza for the rest of the week(and me being angry I can’t have any lol).

    Chi-town, i’m a little excited about the mashed potato buffet lol. We’ve done it with baked potatoes, but I have so many boxes of mashed potatoes that I knew I should use some of those up, along with cheese and gravy lol.

    Spaghetti, aren’t you a sweetie pie! Way to go on the pot roast…it’s a great “mother-in-law” meal! Mine is applesauce chicken…MIL doesn’t eat read meat, so I served that to her when she came to visit and she was in heaven!
