Menu Plan Monday 10-12-09

Another week has flown by for me and it’s already time to be thinking menu again. Thankfully when Lindsay and Rachel planned, they planned for two weeks. This will be a great help to me, because 4 of the girls are suffering from respiratory ailments. Having a menu already planned will give me just one less thing to think about and will make dinner so much easier.

I did learn a hard lesson last week. If you think you may forget to do something, write yourself a noteĀ  and place it in a prominent place. I often do this and even have a dry erase board in my master bath for just such things. Last Thursday I thawed my pork roast and then cooked it in the crock pot. I didn’t get it in the crockpot until about 3pm and let it cook into the evening. I didn’t want to put it in the fridge until it had cooled down some, so I left it to cool in the crockpot. Wanna guess what I forgot to do? You guessed it; I never put it in the fridge. I ruined a whole pork roast! I started to write myself a note, but thought, “Nah, I’ll remember to put it away. I walk right past it on the way to my room.” That should have been the first hint that I needed to write myself a note. I remembered it just as I was waking the next morning. As I awake I usually begin running through a mental list of what I have to do that day. I got to, “Put pork roast in crock pot with bar-b-que sauce…” and I stopped. Panic ensued and I ran to the crockpot. I was utterly dejected when I looked inside and saw the cold, lifeless, ruined pork roast. I am blessed that I have a very understanding husband to doesn’t get flustered over such mistakes.

Right now my menu only goes through Friday, because that is when my next shopping trip will be. I hope my menu sparks some ideas for you. Make sure that you drop by Laura’s blog to get other great menu ideas.
