Weekly Menu 10/28 - 11/1, Weather Permitting

Hurricane Sandy.

Frankenstorm.

The Perfect Storm.

The Storm of the Century.

If you live on the east coast, you're probably sick of hearing about it by now. Hell, even if you aren't on the east coast, I'm sure your local news is talking about it. I'm not a meteorologist and to be completely honest, I haven't paid much attention to the news, but I do know that this storm has the potential to be a monster, depending on where she makes landfall. So far, we're not really supposed to see the effects of Sandy until Monday night into Tuesday, but who knows.

I'm prepared-ish. We have two cases of water and enough canned goods to feed a small army. We have candles, flashlights, batteries and I even purchased a battery-operated radio. I'm really not concerned at the moment and I kinda just want to get this over with. I don't really have patience for this kind of stuff.

So pending our electricity situation, the menu for the week is as follows:

Sunday - Chicken Tostadas with Mexican Rice

Monday - Steak and Mashed Potatoes with Green Beans

Tuesday - Cranberry Apple Pork with Wild Rice

Wednesday - Chicken Quinoa Soup

Thursday - Shrimp Tacos 

For breakfast, I plan on having an Abs Diet meal of oatmeal made with milk and topped with cinnamon and vanilla whey protein. Lunches are going to be turkey wraps. As for dessert, I'm planning on pumpkin nutella cheesecake cupcakes.

Otherwise, a ton of Kindle books are downloaded and the wi-fi is turned off to extend the battery life. Oh, and I have 4 bottles of wine. If that doesn't get us through this storm, I don't know what will.

Stay safe East Coasters!!
