Menu Plan Monday 3/19

Before I get to my menu plan for the week, I want to give a shoutout to a product that I wasn’t planning on reviewing this quickly, but necessity dictated I use it in excess this evening.  And perform it did.

My handsome husband was in the kitchen making dessert (mug cakes, if you must know) and reached into our top pantry cabinet to grab the canola oil, and accidentally knocked over the half-full GLASS bottle of olive oil onto the floor.  Oops.

We stood there for a second not knowing how to go about cleaning up olive oil from a pockmarked linoleum floor.  I grabbed a few rags to keep it from spreading and then busted out the paper towels for maximum absorption.  Once the oil was mostly absorbed we had the issue of the tiny shards of glass.  I’d remembered hearing about using bread slices to pick up glass shards, and we just happened to have four butt slices sitting on the counter waiting for me to make breadcrumbs.  They worked perfectly!  Not only did they absorb some of the remaining layer of oil, but they got all the glass shards up.  We think.

However, the floor was still slippery.  Enter Clorox GreenWorks Multipurpose Cleaner.  They’d sent me some free product a few weeks ago and I hadn’t had a chance to use it yet (though I’ve been using the wipes in the bathroom…I do live with boys after all).  I sprayed the floor and we wiped it up with paper towels and noticed immediately the floor wasn’t shiny anymore.  Perfect!  I wasn’t sure if it would cut the oil like “real” cleaners, but it definitely performed.  Woot!


The past few weeks I’ve neglected menu planning in a big way.  I just didn’t have it in me, and I still kind of don’t, but I’m forcing myself.  Here’s what I’m thinking for this week:

Breakfast burritos – We have 4 dozen eggs in the fridge.  Yep.
Pizza – I say this almost every week but I haven’t actually made pizza in a few months.
Spaghetti and meatballs
“Favorite” Casserole – Totally looks gross but I bet it’s delish.
Some sort of soup – I have a bunch of frozen stock in the freezer.  Might as well use it.

Disclosure:  I received the Clorox GreenWorks All-Purpose Cleaner free of charge from GreenWorks and Big Tent.  I was not required to review the product, nor was I otherwise compensated for this review.  All opinions are 100% mine, as usual.
