Trust me, neither do I.
DH does the cooking because he has strict dietary restrictions and he weighs and measures everything he puts into his mouth so he has to control the cooking. (You don't hear me complaining though! Chat Icon)
But sometimes I read these menus and they sound like a 5 star restaurant.
And i'm here like- yeah we had a casserole. We had tacos. We got take out 2 times this week and went out to dinner once. LOL

I’ve been a mess this week. Last night we had takeout. I think I’ve made rigatoni with chicken sausage and spinach, tacos, jambalaya, and shrimp scampi this week. I can’t remember. Salmon burgers and sweet potato fries tonight. Tomorrow DH is going out so I’m making Trader Joe’s cauliflower and cheese ravioli which is my new obsession. It’s delicious.

Omg if this is your menu as a mess, how is it when you’re not? Everything sounds delicious.

When I’m a mess, my menu sounds like this: order Chinese, order pizza, mcds, order pasta from pizzeria to act like we are changing it up and then cry at the end of the week with the $$$ we spent Chat Icon

Re: Weekly Menus:

This is what I did so far and plans for the rest of the week.

Sunday: Skinnytaste Korean meatballs with fried rice

Monday: “Marry Me Chicken” (chicken in a sun dried tomato cream sauce— so yummy! Google it. It’s on Modern Honey Blog) with a side arugula salad.

Tuesday: Leftovers

Wednesday: Abendbrot. This time I did a grain bread, spread with some butter, topped with Tyrolean ham, Parmesan and olive oil. Basically open faced sandwiches.

Thursday- That tomato basil chicken recipe that Nell put up years ago.

Friday- Slow oven cooked salmon with spinach and chick peas

Saturday- a soup and sandwich night.

Tues: marinated baked chicken cutlets, baked potatoes and veggies
Wed: spaghetti and turkey meatballs w/ veggies
Thurs: probably leftover of whatever we have
Fri: Usually go out with friends for dinner or bring in

I don't ever cook on the weekends. Either we go out to dinner or friends, or bring in pizza.

Chat Icon they were all thrown together. The jamabyala wasn’t really jambalaya, it was frozen shrimp, andouille, diced tomatoes and Cajun seasoning over a bag of frozen cauliflower rice.

I made ST arroz con pollo on Sunday and had to throw it out because it was so bad. So we had Thai.

Last night I made wonton soup which was literally boiling broth and throwing in bok choy, soy sauce and frozen wontons.

Lol I don’t make interesting meals either. While I do think we have a lot of good chefs on here, I think the description is key. Example:

Maple glazed carrots - carrots baked in the oven with maple syrup & seasonings

Parmesan & herb roasted potatoes: potatoes baked in the oven with Parmesan and spices

I also found that prepping ahead & the crockpot has given me time to elevate my meals such as seasoning and freezing meat, pre-prep meatloaf the night before, throwing chili, chicken or steak in the crockpot.
