Menu Plan: 10/21 — Wait… I’m going away???


Were you to look at my menu plan posted on the side of my fridge, you would believe I was having a totally normal week chez moi. I have neat little meals printed in for every day of the week, just like always.


I totally forgot I’m going to Allume.


This Fall has been rough on our family. Don’t get me wrong; we’re fine and happy and all that good jazz. But, between the regular old colds and tummy bugs, the passing of what should have been our fourth baby‘s due date, and our son’s loss of consciousness that quickly spun into terrifying test results… well, my mind has not been on my own “stuff.”


I’ve seen all the excited chatter on Twitter. Witnessed people planning meet-ups and gushing what they’re buying, packing, planning.


I still haven’t quite wrapped my brain around the fact that I’m going.


But, as it stands, I sure am. And, so, just before I typed this post, I carefully erased the meals I’d pencilled in for Thursday through Saturday. We won’t be here to eat them!



B: Cheerios, Applesauce, Milk (for the littles, before 7:30am Mass)

Brunch: Breakfast Burritos

D: I think we have Sunday supper at Bama & Papa’s?



B: Tropical Delight Oatmeal, Milk

D: Stuffed Pork Chops, Rice & Veggies



B: Banana Muffins, Clementines, Milk


D: Mac & Cheese w/ Ham, Broccoli



B: Banana Muffins, Yogurt, Juice

D: Tortellini w/ Shrimp, Peas, and an Asiago Cream Sauce



B: Tea & Crumpets Oatmeal, Apples, Milk

D: Eggplant Parm, Garlic Toast



B: Cantaloupe Cucumber Smoothies, Toast

D: . . . WHAT AM I DOING??? I told you all we wouldn’t be here for any of this! Sigh… like I said– I totally had it planned.


. . . . . . .


Tell me I’m not the only one who is a creature of habit? :)
