  1. Sounds like it all went well and I'm sure it will this week too :)

    1. Thank you, Martha. No one will go hungry and that's what is important, isn't it? :)

  2. I get the "How/what I feel like cooking" thing. Currently I wish we could live on apple slices and popcorn.

    1. Make it apple slices and peanut butter and I think that's just what I'll have for my lunch, today!

  3. What we eat definitely relates to what we feel like and how much we feel like cooking. A plan is good, however. At least then you have something to fall back on when you're not sure what to do. Now if we only had a plan. No matter how many times I plan meals, I never keep it up for very long. But I guess what we're doing is working okay.

    1. As long as what you are doing is working for you, that's all that matters, isn't it? My meal plan is only a suggestion, at this point!

  4. You are eating such a variety of foods. That's wonderful!

    1. Thank you, Stephenie. I already went off the meal plan, today, and made a fish curry for lunch!

  5. Looks good!

    I found something in the freezer with pork pieces and mixed beans and it smells good so I'm going to go with that tonight!

    1. Sounds good - a different version of "pork and beans" I guess. :)

  6. Your planned and actual, meals sound so delicious. Your daughter's drawings are fantastic. She's quite talented xxx

  7. You have a nice variety of meal ideas, which is what I'm trying to do this time. It's definitely soup weather over here so I will be cooking up pot loads as soon as I get my next delivery.

    1. Thank you, Eileen. Nothing like a bowl of hot soup to warm one up, is there? Hope you get your delivery, soon.
