I am writing this post not because I think you want to know everything we eat....because I don’t. I am writing this post to de-stress my life.
You see, I’m a Stress-er (yes, I meant to use the capitol “S”). I stress about anything and everything. Other people will use the word “Perfectionist” (which I am as well), but really my attempt to make everything perfect is what causes stress.
For instance, if Harrison says “What’s for dinner?”, my response might be, “Oh, I don’t know, I forgot to thaw anything out, and we don’t have any lettuce and the tea pitcher is empty....” I mean we would probably starve before I stopped listing the problems I had created. On the other hand, Harrison would walk into the kitchen and pull something out, throw some spices on it, cook it, and we would have something to eat in fifteen minutes. And it would be REALLY GOOD.
So to avoid this whole dilemma that occurs in the particular areas of food and clothing, I have been inspired by Family, Stamping and Food to post my weekly menu.
I’m a little late today...even though I did plan this yesterday I thought the weekend update would be more appropriate.
Here is our weekly Menu:
Lunch: Left over chicken dish
Dinner: Fish, Rice, Asparagus
Breakfast: Pancakes and Canadian Bacon
Dinner: Hot dogs at the ball park
Breakfast: Special K Cereal
Lunch: Tomato Sandwich (His) Tuna salad and Wheat Thins (Hers)
Dinner: Hawaiian Chicken, Rice, Green Beans and Pineapple
Breakfast: Eggs and Toast
Lunch: Leftover Hawaiian Chicken
Dinner: Tacos with all the fixings
Breakfast: Special K
Let’s hope we stick to it! (So far so good....)
Are you a perfectionist too? Or more like my easy-going husband? What stresses you out?
And how do you go about your meal planning?
