Melancholy Menu Planning

This week's menu is a little off. I get my money to go grocery shopping on Thursday and I am low on ideas for the food that is left in my home. So, my plan for this week is only through Thursday. And I am working on my monthly plan and shopping list. It's not going well. I found out this morning that my father has been in the hospital for the past 3 days. We have no details but we do know that he is going home today. My father is currently waiting and preparing for a liver transplant. Hopefully in November. What happened now and how it will effect his chances at a transplant are unknown. I am waiting for more details and hoping that all works out for the best. Honestly, I am not sure what the best is or will be at this point. And I am honestly not sure how I am feeling right now. Sad, confused, angry that we only found out now that he is in the hospital, panicked because I have no idea what is going on, stressed that there is no way that I can go see him.... all of it at once.

So, for now, this is my menu plan. And I hope I can concentrate enought o get my plans and shopping list in place before Thursday....

Monday - We had Ravioli Casserole. BUT, I forgot to cook the ravioli before I put the casserole together. And it turned out even better than usual! Yummy.

Tuesday - Beef and Chicken Enchiladas

Wednesday - Hot dogs and fries

Thursday - leftovers

Head over to Organizing Junkie for some better and more comprehensive menu plans!!

I am so sorry that you are dealing with all those emotions at once. Just take it one day at a time and one emotion at a time.
As for your menu, Ravioli is one thing I have not made in a very long time, I may have to add that to next week.
I hope at some point today I can get my menu plan up and also my To-Do Tuesday. lol Been a crazy week so far.

Oh my Gosh. I didn't know your dad was waiting on a liver transplant! I sure hope everything goes okay. I have a blog friend, Mr. Nighttime, that had a liver transplant 12 years ago and he is doing great. Hopefully the same will be true for your father as well.

I'm sorry about your dad! I hope everything goes well for him and your family!

And just because I HAVE to tell you, I'm always starving after reading your blog! And for a university student who has to cook her own meals, that is totally unfair. LOL!

I'll pray for your dad and for you. I can't imagine the wait you're all enduring.

Best to you!
