meal plan monday: feb 25.

im on week 3 with my meal planning board and i have discovered its tragic flaw: as quick as it makes meal planning, it still doesnt just do it all for me. i had every intention yesterday of taking 15 or 20 minutes to throw together a plan and a grocery list, but instead i finished mark's quilt and washed dried and folded 4 loads of laundry and did 90 minutes of yoga and made dinner and watched three whole movies and parts of a fourth.

the chicken noodle soup that we survived on for most of last week.

on a normal week, this would make me feel like a failure. but i had the pleasure of having an extra unpleasant monday morning to give me a little bit of perspective about the whole thing. you see, in the 7 short minutes that i spent in the kitchen this morning to make coffee and pack my lunch, i somehow managed to fall off the stool and punch myself in the head with a bowl. so really its kind of impressive that i ever actually accomplish anything in the kitchen ever. so there. compared to the complete mess i am very capable of being, even this fail of a meal plan is still really a win.

Monday: lazy lasagna. (didnt eat it last week)
Tuesday: soup from a can.
Wednesday: crock pot chicken enchilada soup. (recipe)
Thursday: frozen raviolis. (also from last weeks plan)
Friday: burgers. (recipe)
Saturday: i declare a date night.
Sunday: fish, rice, and a veggie.
