The Unplanned Menu Plan

Yes, it's Wednesday, and I'm just now posting this.  I don't have a specific menu plan for the week, but there is definitely a plan.  We are going camping this weekend, so things are a bit crazy.  Yes, it's our first trip of the season, actually first trip in over a year and a half.  And it is the first ever camping trip for two little munchkins.  Can we say adventure?!

Photo was taken by Kaia with my phone.  Not a great photo, but you can see what life is like for me.

We are considering leaving the dogs in the care of family or neighbors, just for this maiden voyage.  Our awesome neighbor Carl is always happy to keep an eye on the house and loves our dogs.  Two fewer bodies to deal with sounds like a pretty good plan, but Sampson so loves to camp...

The menu for this week is pretty much a list of dinners to choose from each night.  With the exception of steak there is no prep work needed (I'm going to use the marinade sample from mysampleshowcase on those).

Weeknight Menus
Healthy pigs in a blanket, peas (Monday's dinner)
Macaroni and cheese with ground beef added, fresh veggies on the side
Steak, corn on the cob and grilled red potatoes
Spaghetti with meat sauce
Hamburger gravy (ground beef with cream of mushroom soup) over rice

Camping Menu
Friday Dinner:
Pasta Salad prepared ahead of time, hot dogs or sausage dogs

Saturday Breakfast:
Sausage links and eggs, maybe some grilled peppers and onions if I find a decent price

Saturday Lunch:
Grilled Pizzas

Saturday Dinner:
Baked potatoes, Hamburgers, and fresh veggies

Sunday Breakfast:
Huevos Rancheros with spicy sausage dogs

Sunday Lunch (if needed)
Tuna fish sandwiches.

Have a great time camping. It should be an adventure. That hamburger gravy sounds pretty good to me. I havne't been camping in years. We eventually moved up to getting cabins.
