Meals this Week

Sadly, I have been far too embarrassed to post my "meal plans" the last several weeks. Honestly, there hasn't been much meal planning going on and instead a whole lot of eating out. I don't really want you all to know how often Chipotle provides dinner for our household.

Going back to work full-time has derailed much of the little home organization I had. And, it's most obvious the weeks that we are really busy on the weekends. Wow. Unfortunately, for our budget and waistlines, there have been a lot of busy weekends lately.

Hopefully, though, we're moving back in the right direction. I actually went to the grocery store over the weekend (we didn't want to go hungry if a tornado hit) and made some things for the freezer and fixed a couple meals at home. Revolutionary, I know. (It was also how I coped with the looming storm threat).

So, here's what meals are looking like around our house this week (and it is nothing fancy, but at least it's not Chipotle).
Sunday - Pot roast, mashed potatoes, green beans, orange jello salad, fruit
Monday - shredded beef taquitos (from the leftover roast), fruit, chips & homemade salsa
Tuesday - sandwiches, fruit, chips, cucumber (baseball game on this night)
Wednesday - Chicken, broccoli and cheese casserole, rice, strawberries/kiwi
Thursday - leftovers
Friday - We are hosting our monthly card night. Not quite sure what is on the menu yet...

What are you eating? Any suggestions for quick and simple weeknight meals?

We liked this one a few weeks ago, and I thought of you guys actually. Pretty easy, especially if you have the chicken precooked.
