So, I know that it's already Wednesday, but I want to share my meal plan for the week. ProjectGirl has an awesome site if you love organization and/or scrapbooking. There I found Free Printable Meal Planners and they are helping so so much. One side for meals and the other for the groceries needed to make them. It's seriously genius. I'd love to post pictures of the upcoming foodstuffs if anyone's interested!

Meal Plan for September 14-20
Spaghetti & garlic cheese drop biscuits (I tweaked this recipe)

Broiled pork chops w/ spice rub
Oven roasted corn-on-the-cob

Soft tacos were on the menu but I had a flatout pizza (bbq sauce, chicken & red onion) and Pookie had Whataburger

Breakfast for Dinner
Smoked sausage and scrambled eggs

Hungry Girl's Exploding Chicken Taquitos with cheese sauce

Pookie Helps Cook!
Meatless Manicotti

Meatloaf, green beans & cornbread

I think that this meal planning thing will help alleviate some of the stress I deal with in trying to make both Pookie and myself happy come dinnertime. In the past I've said that he's picky, but that's really not true. There are tons of things he likes to eat but his favorites are completely different than my favorites. For instance I love chicken, colorful vegetables and noodles. He prefers red meat, rice and starchy vegetables. I like chinese and italian; he prefers mexican and cajun. If we have a plan that serves each of our favorites equally then maybe we won't complain as much.

Please listen up; you DO NOT want to work anywhere near a public classroom. I am a certified former English teacher and tutor. You are handcuffed when it comes to tangible consequences for real discipline problems. And those future prisoners know it real quick. I've had one junior refuse to stand and/or say the Pledge of Allegiance which completely blindsided me. I let her have it and told her she might as well spit on the graves of the brave patriots who died so she can live in a free country; and why doesn't she go live in N Korea for 6 months. She'll be the first one on her feet after that. Believe me, I was biting my tongue not to cuss her out for being so worthless. Another one about that age strutted into class tardy singing rap shit at the top of his lungs, "I come in your mouth..." I let him have it too. And it's the little ones too as well; they have zero respect for authority and never shut their mouths because they are not being raised any better than their typical daily behavior reflects. I was ultimately fired over lunacy like this. 90% of prisoners are high school drop outs because no one ever enforced the rules when they were little. I'm writing an article for Fort Worth Magazine from advocating reinstatement of corporal punishment thing; please share horror stories of reprobate students that you know of ASAP; thanks!
