    Week 443 Weekly Menu

    EmailPinterestFacebookTwitterGoogle+StumbleUpon

    Happy Sunday! I brought all my design files for the weekly menu graphics, but I just discovered my travel laptop doesn’t have the right software. Whoops. So, instead of a picture of my menu how about one of my mom’s hydrangeas? Flowers are prettier than menus, anyway.

    Week 442 Menu + Show and Tell!

    EmailPinterestFacebookTwitterGoogle+StumbleUpon

    Happy Sunday, everyone! So, today’s menu post is a bit unusual. First, I’m sharing Friday’s Show and Tell links with you today because, quite honestly, I forgot to share them on Friday. The kids and I were having too much summer fun!

    Second, I don’t have a menu planned for this week! The kids and I leave on Tuesday to visit family on the east coast, so I honestly have no clue what our food plans will be. If you need inspiration, click here to see menus from past weeks. I always read through everyone’s comments on older menu posts to get ideas when I do my own planning each week. They are such a great resource! Also, just because I am not posting a menu doesn’t mean you can’t! If you have a menu planned, please share it in the comments!!!

    For Show and Tell this week, I have several things to share with you!

    That’s it for today! As I mentioned earlier, please post your menus in the comments. We especially need you on these weeks I’m traveling to provide inspiration for others! Thank you in advance and have a wonderful week!

    Week 441 Menu

    EmailPinterestFacebookTwitterGoogle+StumbleUpon

    Happy 5th of July!

    week 441 weekly menu from @janemaynard including FREE printable meal plan and shopping list!

    Last week I didn’t follow my menu at ALL. My mom took us to Macaroni Grill on Monday night and we had leftovers that lasted us two more dinners. Then my friend Kristen from Dine & Dish gave me a bunch of her expiring Panera rewards and were able to get 5 entrees, which also fed us for at least 2 more nights. That’s the kind of summer I like, tons of food I didn’t have to prepare! Because of all the unexpected goodies, and because we grilled tri-tip for the 4th, I’m pretty much using last week’s menu. But I already did my grocery shopping so it WILL happen as planned this week!

    MONDAY:
    Pesto Chicken Salad Sandwiches
    – Fruit and carrots

    TUESDAY:
    Carnitas Tacos
    Guacamole and chips

    WEDNESDAY:
    Chicken Pasta Salad
    – Garlic Knots

    THURSDAY:
    – Leftovers

    FRIDAY:
    – Eat out night

    SATURDAY:
    – Dinner on the grill! Veggie kebabs + some sort of meat
    – Fresh fruit

    SUNDAY:
    – Leftovers or Breakfast for Dinner (waffles and fruit)

    I know it’s summer and it’s hard to get in the groove, but that’s all the more reason to get your menu plan done! Please share your weekly menu in the comments to inspired all of us!

    Hey everyone! I must be in full summer mode because I completely forgot to do Show and Tell on Friday and it’s almost 7:00 pm and I haven’t posted my menu yet!

This weekend Nate and I will be heading to the Soulstice Retreat this weekend (he’s my +1, sorry everyone who volunteered for that spot!), so my parents are going to watch the kids. I planned a couple meals I can make ahead of time so hopefully it will be easy for them!
