Our February 2021 Menu Plan

In my last blog post I talked about occupying myself during this year of quarantine.  I also mentioned how easily my husband entertains himself.  He is working on my eighth blog book.  That is what I thought he was doing on his computer.  Apparently he was working on something else.  I guess he was tired of me asking him what he wanted for dinner.  This is what he came up with.

He even made a grocery list to correspond.  This is his 2nd month doing this.  I guess it's my fault.  I told him if he chose the meals, I would clean up.  Coming up with meals everyday has gotten very old after 53 years.  The part of the contract which was vague was who would cook.  I guess that was one of those unwritten things.  He did make up some meatballs and meatloaf for the freezer.  He has also cooked a few of these recipes, and I do appreciate that.  The hard part is the planning ahead part so meat is not still frozen and any thing else which needs to be prepared ahead of time.

Looking at this menu reminds me of a story.  When we had our first child, I knew less than a little about babies.  She turned out awesome, no thanks to me.  When she cried, I would feed her.  The more she cried, the more I fed her.  On one of her doctor appointments we discussed the fact that she cried a lot.  He asked me how I would feel if I ate Thanksgiving dinner for every meal.  He said she was crying because she was too full.  I think following this menu exactly will make us both cry from being too full, it will be a lot of cooking everyday and also will provide a lot of leftovers.  I also noticed there is no Culvers or Dominoes built into this menu.  

So, I appreciate the effort but perhaps a little modification is in order.  We aren't royalty.  Oh yes, I forgot.  He is royalty.  His 23andme account says he is a descendant of King Louis XVI.  The guy who got beheaded.  Hopefully it wasn't for working his cook staff too hard.
