Menu Plan Monday 6/13

So, I told you last week was going to be crazy.  It was.

We made it up the mountain for a week end camping trip, took the dirt bikes for some riding.  My favorite trail was totally impassable due to the wild winter they had up there.  It wasn't so much a fierce winter as it was an unusually wet winter.  The rain and snow made for lots of trees and falling over, large branches breaking off, big rocks sliding down hillsides and great big deep ruts from run off.  The other trail, we call it the big loop, had a few mud holes, but was able to ride it with out problem.  On the second day however, my youngest daughter J. was bound and determined to keep up with her father and had a wee mishap.  They were riding my favorite trail to see if my quad could make it.  When they found that the trail was in really bad shape they turned around to head back.  Her foot got caught by a fallen tree and the force split her skin open, which caused the foot to swell up as well.  Thankfully, after a trip to urgent care on Sunday, nothing is broken.   This does cause her great discomfort, she is on crutches for a week to keep weight off the wound.  Biggest problem with this is, she is in the middle of trying to make the school volleyball team.  Was supposed to start the next session of ice skate lessons as well.  The lessons have been put on hold until the next session, but she is still determined to make the volleyball team.  We will see how it heals.  I think she likes being on crutches just a little too much.

I finally got my last stack of loose recipes filed in proper categories while on the camping trip.  I did not get a bit of progress made on any of my planning though.  While at the doctor's office, I did make a bit of progress on creating a chore list and to do list for myself.  Will be working on that a bit today as I do some work in the house.  I need to do laundry in the worst way and the little bit of help I was planning on is not going to be able to help now that she is hurt.  Also, the clean up in the house has not taken center stage, so to speak, as I found out yesterday that the grand sons will be coming in a week instead of August and that their mom, my oldest daughter C. will be coming with them.  That will also throw in another week that menu planning will be impossible as we will have no idea until we wake up what we will be doing.

I will post my progress as it happens.

Here at our house this week, the plan is:

Mon. - Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, salad
Tue. - Cheese enchiladas, rice
Wed. - Italian sausage penne bake
Thu. - Chicken strips, rice casserole
Fri. - Baked steak, oven baked potatoes, carrots
Sat. - Pizza

Kind of simple fare this week, if you need some inspiration pop over to I'm an Organizing Junkie and check out Meal Plan Monday.  Hundreds of cooks link their blogs with their menu plan for the week.
