Last week went well in part because I stood in front of the open fridge and thought for a bit about how the week would go. I realize it’s not optimal for this thinking to be done in front of an open refrigerator, but given that it got me from a 4 to a 7, I’m going to stick with it. So give me a minute, here… Ok. Here’s my week, after looking at both the fridge and the pantry, and then remembering to ALSO check my calendar.
- Mon: salmon croquettes, rice, steamed spinach, sliced apples, carrot sticks
- Tue: soup & salad
- Wed: Prince Spaghetti Day! spaghetti and meatballs. possibly homemade tortellini if I feel ambitious. caesar salad. peas. fruit.
- Thur: Breakfast for Dinner. Pancakes and scrambled eggs, cinnamon toast and English muffins, berries and sliced tomatoes (those are for me)(yes, I’m going to slice them, put them on a plate like everyone will help themselves to some, and then eat them all myself with a bit of salt)(it’s not a crime)(at least not yet)(it’s ‘misrepresenting familial interest in vegetables’, at best, and I don’t think they’ve got that one on the books yet).
- Fri: Movie Night! I will supplement cheeseburgers/chicken strips/fried cheese with fruit and veg. Enjoy a chuckle with me here, as we imagine me re-packing the cucumber rounds and cuties.
I think this is practical, and do-able, but I always think that on Sunday night. Apparently, Sunday night is when I dream big, and somewhere about Wednesday my Dream Engine gives up and it’s all frito pie and P. Terry’s from there. So here’s hoping, my friends. Cheep Cheep!
