    Week 548 Menu

    Well, I guess I am officially in vacation mode because I forgot to put up the weekly menu post on Sunday as promised! Sorry! This week we’re cooking pizza’s in a smoker, making pulled pork in the smoker and other delicious things. Also, one day in NYC! So, that’s the extent of my weekly menu planning. 😉

    If you do have a menu planned and are ready to share, please put it in the comments below. Your menus are the best and great inspiration for so many!

    Have a great week!

    Week 547 Weekly Menu

    As responsible as I’ve been about meal planning the last two weeks, this week I am taking that planned-for vacation from the dinner plan! I am hopping on a plane with the kids tomorrow for our annual East Coast trip, this time tooling around in a Toyota Prius. (I am pumped about spending way less on gas this summer than we ever have!) I know in the next two week’s we’ll be having smoked pizza at some point, thanks to my brother, but beyond that I haven’t a clue. And I’m kind of excited about that!

    I won’t be totally MIA on the blog this coming month. I still need to share a special chocolate cake recipe with you soon, as well as a fun and silly grilling idea for summer. And who knows what other deliciousness will find it’s way onto the blog thanks to our travels. Plus this weekly post will go up no matter what, whether I plan a menu or not because I know some of you will!

    If you are one of those responsible ones with a menu planned this week, please put it in the comments below! THANK YOU!

    Week 545 Weekly Menu

    Hi friends! I am SO glad I didn’t plan a menu last week…so many times this past week at around 4:00 my kids were in the middle or pure summer “funness” and I couldn’t bear to tear them away to go make dinner. We had quite a few lame-o dinners, but it was totally worth it!

    Week 545 Weekly Menu from @janemaynard including FREE printable PDF with menu and ingredients list!

    This week I am planning a menu, mostly because I need a little guidance on my grocery shopping. I’m pretty certain we won’t be sticking to this completely, but at least we’ll have options and actual food in the house!

    TUESDAY:

    – I’m not entirely sure what our sides will be, but I think I’m going to make these Crispy Rosemary Potatoes per my little Anna’s request!

    Week 544 Menu

    Hi, friends! So, it’s a non-planning week for me. In case you missed last week’s post, I’m giving myself a break this summer…if a meal plan happens, great! If not, great! But, as promised, I’m still getting a weekly post up so you all can keep on sharing your menus. And please do that!

    Nate's Birthday with the kids, 2017 (image copyright @janemaynard)

    Last week was Nate’s birthday and I made a cake that WILL be shared with you this week. We can’t keep the recipe to ourselves. Better than the cake, though, was celebrating with our three kids. It’s amazing how excited they were for our little party of five.

    Okay, share your menus in the comments if you’ve got ’em! I need the inspiration myself! 😉

    Week 543 Weekly Menu

    HAPPY SUMMER! It’s our first week of summer and, if you can’t tell, I’m in vacation mode! 😉 I’ve decided to give myself a mental break this summer. If I get a weekly menu done, fantastic. If I don’t, that’s okay! I have never given myself this kind of space around the weekly menu (I know, maybe might be a little crazy). That said, I know some of you will still be consistently planning, so I do promise to make sure a post is published where everyone can share their menus still. And I will make sure those posts go up on Sundays. Deal?

    I really haven’t planned a menu yet for this week and it’s kind of awesome. Owen (my 5 year old) and I found ourselves alone last night, so we went on a date, where we ate burgers and fries and bought lots of ice cream at the grocery store. It was perfection. I do know we’ll have grilled chicken tacos and homemade hamburgers this week, and I’m going to hit up the farmer’s market this afternoon for some inspiration.

    Your turn! Share those glorious weekly menus! And have a great week!

    Week 542 Weekly Menu

    Thursday is the last day of school AND I have about 3,152 work deadlines this week. Yes, I am aware this would be the ideal week to have a meal plan pulled together. But, alas, it’s NOT HAPPENING. At least not in the next two days. So, in the interest of keeping it real…

    PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE share your wonderful menus in the comments since I’ve got nothin’! And I’m totally going to be stealing your ideas for SURE.

    Have a fantastic week!

    Week 540 Weekly Menu

    Clearly I am having a problem with getting my weekly menu planning done. Two weeks in a row that I’m posting on Wednesday AND I don’t even have a menu plan together. Let’s change “Wow, what a week!” to “Wow, what a month!” 😉

    So, if you’re totally awesome and have your menu planned AND you happen to check in here even though the week is halfway through, please post your awesomeness in the comments!

    As for me and my menu planning…I’ll at least get a lame post like this on up on Sunday for next week. 😉

    Happy Eating!

    Week 539 Menu

    So, are you wondering why I haven’t posted my weekly menu yet? It’s because I DON’T HAVE ONE! Yes, it’s Wednesday. I have no plan for the week and the week is halfway over. I also haven’t been to the store yet, but miraculously we aren’t starving. I am going to have to get to the store today, but this week just hasn’t been one for planning. I know, I know, life is easier when you do get the weekly menu plan together, but sometimes, well, it just doesn’t happen. (I blame end-of-school-year fatigue…and, just to keep it totally real, I have 2 weeks’ worth of clean laundry waiting to be folded and put away in the garage AND the fish bowls haven’t been cleaned out in the same amount of time, which just might kill the fish. So the weekly menu isn’t the only thing suffering around here. 😉 )

    Here is a quick rundown of what we have been doing for dinner…

    Monday: Roasted tri-tip with roasted veggies

    Tuesday: Tri-tip tacos (holy deliciousness!)

    Wednesday: Roasted Vegetable Egg Scrambles

    Thursday: More Tri-tip Tacos

    Friday – Sunday: Pretty sure the tri-tip and roasted vegetables will have run their course by Friday, at which point we’ll probably go with cereal. 😉 Okay, not really (maybe), but I just can’t summon the brain power to figure those days out yet!

    Hopefully you are all having a more organized and productive food week than I am. If so, please share your menus in the comments!

    Happy Eating!
