    Week 447 Menu

    EmailPinterestFacebookTwitterGoogle+StumbleUpon

    This week is a special week at our house when when it comes to meal planning. My 10-year-old daughter Cate is going to be making dinner for us every night! I’m writing a piece for Babble about having Cate take charge of the dinner plans and this is the big week! Cate and I have been brainstorming her menu for the last month or so, thinking of delicious food that she can also make on her own (or at least mostly on her own). We just finished finalizing the menu. She’s feeling excited about it and says she’s sure she’ll be able to cook it all! I’m impressed (and surprised) with her confidence! Can’t wait to report on how it goes!

    Week 445 Menu

    EmailPinterestFacebookTwitterGoogle+StumbleUpon

    Hey everyone! First and most importantly, I was able to buy cannoli at Modern Pastry in Medford, MA yesterday. I’m sure you were all worrying that I might not get this task accomplished. Worry no more.

    Okay, so, I’m totally just going to NOT plan a menu this week! I know, CRAZY TALK. We are flying home on Wednesday and it’s going to be a fun and crazy week and I’m going to give myself a break and not think too hard about anything, including the weekly menu. I promise next Sunday I’ll be back in the groove. We’ll be home by then and ready to go!

    Since I’m a complete slacker, we especially need your menus this week! Please share your weekly meal plan in the comments! And, if you need some inspiration while you plan, click here to see past weeks’ menus!

    Thank you to everyone who posts a weekly menu – I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it! Have a great week!

    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!
