This Week on the Dining Table

It's the "Roller Coaster Ride Week" Edition--

It was a week of highs and then a week of really low lows.
A great time was had at Chez Sluggy mid week when company arrived.  Meeting people you have known for years only online is 'da bomb!
Then another blogger friend took his own life which sent me crashing to the depths of despair.
Then to add to my agony I have temporary lost the use of my foot.
And yesterday my Daughter flew into PA for a visit and that has lifted me back up.

 A few more highs and less lows is all I am asking for, for this coming week.

Onward to the meal planning!
Here's what was planned last week.......

1. Sunday--Collards, leftover zuke in sauce, fried Flounder
2. Monday--Spaghetti and Meatballs, Zuke w/Tomato sauce, Garlic Bread
3. Tuesday--Mixed veggie Stir-fry, Garlic Soy chicken(using grilled chicken leftovers), Rice(for Hubs)
4. Wednesday--Chili(Hubs will have rice too)
5. Thursday--?
6. Friday--?
7. Saturday--?
And this is what actually happened--

1. Sunday--Collards, leftover zuke in sauce, fried Flounder
2. Monday--Spaghetti and Meatballs, Zuke w/Tomato sauce, Garlic Bread
3. Tuesday--6" Subway sandwich
4. Wednesday--Steak dinner out w/friends
5. Thursday--Chili(I don't eat chili, I had a Hamburger and leftover Collards)
6. Friday--Denny's(I had fish and chips and a salad)
7. Saturday--Stromboli take-out
As for my grocery spending last week......Hubs bought a pack of hamburger rolls, 2 containers of panko(we were out and they were on sale) and half gallon of milk(also out of this).
I did not go to the grocery stores last week.
$6.92 spent.
Here is this week's food plan--

1. Sunday--Chinese take-out
2. Monday--cook-out foods(burgers, dogs, corn, etc.)
3. Tuesday--?
4. Wednesday--?
5. Thursday--?
6. Friday--?
7. Saturday--?

I am bedridden at the moment due to my foot.  My daughter is here visiting so either she will be cooking for us or we will survive the week on more take-out meals Hubs brings home, at least until I am able to walk around again and get downstairs.  It's at times like these when I wish our house was all on one level.....
I have no plan this week so far.  If I improve enough I'll come up with a plan then.
Otherwise, I am at the whim of Hubs and Daughter. ;-)

What I need to buy for this menu? clue. It depends on what Daughter wants to cook.
What is getting fixed and served at your house this week?    

Was last week's plan successful, did you go off plan or did you not even plan what was going to be eaten that week?

Any great deals on food at your stores this week? 



  1. I wish I could package and mail a few meals to you to get you perked up. I am sorry for your sad events. Life likes to throw things at us sometimes. Enjoy your visit with your daughter. My older will be visiting a few days next weekend before she move to new digs.

  2. I hope your foot gets better, it's no fun being in bed. At least you don't have to cook(ha ha)! I'm glad your daughter is there to help. i hate those weeks of highs and lows. this whole year has been like that for me. im looking forward to the end of 2015! hopefully next year is better.

  3. Can't you hop around on your one good foot? LOL! Just kidding of course. I hope you heal up quickly and hope you have lots of good fast food venues nearby. Is you daughter a good cook? If it were Kazi cooking I'd be fed a constant diet of guacamole!

  4. Glad you're posting.. I truly hope you feel better. My little girl in collage, who does not drive, came home last night and told me her friend got in a car accident. Jeese Louise, I'm waiting for her to wake up to see if see hurts.

  5. I wish you better and I hope you get to have some fun and even go to the casino!! Now how did I know that!?!?!?

  6. I'm not eating much this week but protein shakes
    As for the foot, peg legs are quite fashionable these days.

  7. Can you slide down the stairs the way little kids do for fun, on your butt?
    We made some "holiday food" to keep the kids happy (which means lots of things that bother my stomach and nose) so I'll be eating leftovers all week and complaining about my nose.

  8. Hope you are feeling better. I am sure your daughter was glad to cook for you on her visit.
