Menu Plan Monday

Getting back into the swing of things, after a horrible week of eating out, thank goodness we are getting back to normal and making dinners again. I mean don't get me wrong, eating out is pretty fantastic because it's no work at all, but after doing it a couple days in a row, it loses it's spark. We were eating out alot because I was recovering from bed rest and while I was actually on bed rest my parents were here cooking meals everyday. But when I started to get back to doing stuff on my own, my husband didn't want me to his solution, let's go out. hahah. Love him for trying.

So let's see, we're gonna go with a few favorites this week. My husband is kinda picky so I have to spring things on him by surprise otherwise he'll protest it. Which is al ot harder now, because he wants to be apart of the meal planning now. Can't say I don't enjoy that, but I see him wanting to pick the same things over and over. Is that a guy thing?

Monday : Taco Soup 
Tuesday : Rotisserie Chicken with mashed potatoes and veggies
Wednesday: Apricot Glazed Chicken Drumsticks with salad
