    Week 747 Weekly Menu

    Long time no talk! I took a break on Mother’s Day, and then last week I just inadvertently took a break from meal planning…and cooking for that matter. I must admit, making dinner has been a real struggle lately, and it is only going to get worse these last weeks of school. I’m going to go ahead and make this plan and then be kind to myself should things go off the rails, again. Wish me luck!

    Week 742 Weekly Menu

    It is crazy how work travel really throws off grocery shopping and cooking. After two weeks in a row having trips, I am home for a good while now. While figuring out what to eat this week once I was home was a bit chaotic, I sure did eat well in Austin, Texas. So, you know, worth it…for me at least! (My family may disagree.)
