What is that saying about best laid plans……….
The best laid plans of Mice and Men often go awry.
That should nicely explain things. I had the best of meal planning plans this week. I try and make dinners that transfer well into lunches. My plan, as good as it sounded, was to make Pad Thai last night and use that in lunches for today. Cold Pad Thai is pretty darn good. Pad Thai was an EPIC FAIL. Sigh! I tried a pre-packaged Pad Thai sauce, followed the recipe on the container, and YUCK! I've made better Pad Thai with a jar of peanut butter (will do next time). Everyone choked it down, but it was agreed not to make it again. I really hate wasting food, and typically do a darn good job of making food go far, and using leftovers. This dinner is dog food! Literally, we are going to have some happy dogs tonight.
So, this morning, I had to rearrange my meals for the rest of the week. The leftover chicken salad was GOING TO BE dinner tonight, but is becoming lunch. I have a family favorite Bean and Cheese Burrito dinner that is a go to last minute meal, and it is taking the place of Chicken Salad tonight. Phew!
How do you handle meal planning mix ups? Do you meal plan? Do you have favorite last minute meals?
Wednesday's are half days at M1's school, so I only need to pack 1 snack….I still pack two. Whatever is leftover becomes her after school snack.
