Weekly Menu 5/20 - 5/25

Well, since you are reading this it means I survived the move. However, you know those Life Alert commercials where the elderly person falls and yells "Help, I've fallen and I can't get up?"

Yeah, that's me today. Moving from the second floor to a third floor apartment is no easy task and a constant reminder of just how out of shape I apparently am. But honestly, my legs are so stiff that if I sit or lay too long, I have to crawl to get up. I'm also sporting a nice variety of bruises up and down my arms and legs from carrying boxes and bumping into stuff. Needless to say, I'm a bit of mess over here.

However, practically everything is done. My mom is coming over today to hang pictures and curtains and then all will be complete. At least until I find something else that could be better organized. But if I don't see another box for the next 6 months, it will still be too soon.

I am rather impressed to admit that Friday amidst unpacking my car, hauling our crap up three flights of steps, organizing and unpacking it, waiting for Comcast, driving back to the old apartment, loading my car again to include two crying cats and coming back down to the new place to unload and unpack, I also made it to the grocery store. Which, believe me, come Saturday morning when I woke up in pain after only 5 hours of sleep, it was much appreciated to have food in the house.

I didn't get meats or anything we needed in bulk though so while you're reading this I'm probably limping into Costco to pick up those items. I honestly didn't think I'd be cooking too much this week, but I planned out a menu just in case and it seems like I'll be able pull it off. Getting used to my new kitchen is another story though.

Sunday - Maryland Crab Cakes, Corn on the Cob, French Fries, Salad

Monday - Chicken Enchiladas

Tuesday - Pierogi 

Wednesday - Spicy Thai Noodles

Thursday - Sriracha Burgers and Fries

Friday  - my Noodle Dish for the Recipe Swap 

The television is calling my name so I'm going to go crawl to the couch now. Happy Sunday!
