    Week 587 Weekly Menu

    Greetings from Cape Cod!

    Sunset in Falmouth, MA on Cape Cod, Maynard family vacation 2018

    It’s Cape week. We planned our menu as an extended family and I am sharing it below. When we got here Saturday we had Sweet Tomatoes pizza, as per tradition. I limited myself to one slice (since I’m not eating much wheat or any dairy lately)…and it was worth every bite. Man, that pizza is good.

    SUNDAY:
    7-Layer Mexican Dip,
    Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

    Week 586 Weekly Menu

    Reports are starting to come in…my friend Mindy made fresh masa tortillas the day after I published my post and my eye doctor made them yesterday, using masa from the same market where I buy masa. Both Mindy and Dr. Hom are converted. I promise I’m not exaggerating about how delicious fresh masa tortillas are…if you haven’t read my fresh masa post, here’s a link!

    Weekly dinner menu for the week of July 23, 2018: BBQ Chicken, Pesto Pasta, BLTs and then traveling to Boston and Cape Cod

    Enough tortilla talk, time for this week’s menu…which is a bit shorter for us because we leave Thursday for our east coast trip! A Toyota Highlander will be waiting for us when we land in Boston and this time we’ll hang out for a day in Boston before heading to Cape Cod. I can’t wait to show my kids our college town!

    Everything on this week’s menu was on last week’s menu…I didn’t cook as much as I thought I would last week, and I really stretched out the carnitas for a few meals.

    MONDAY:
    – Grilled BBQ Chicken
    – Salad

    TUESDAY:
    – Pesto Pasta
    – Salad

    WEDNESDAY:
    – BLTs

    THURSDAY:
    – Airport food

    FRIDAY:
    – Dinner in Boston somewhere

    Week 583 Weekly Menu

    Hello meal planning friends! SO….this week Nate and I are heading to Sweden to spend some time with my parents, siblings and sister-in-law. My dad was born in Stockholm and none of his children have been to Sweden, so now we are all finally going together…without kids! I keep joking that the plane ride with Nate will feel like an extended date. 😉

    My in-laws are coming to watch the kids and for the first few days it’s just my (angelic) father-in-law holding down the fort, so we’re picking simple and easy meals for them to prepare together this week.

    You all know the drill, please post your menu in the comments below! And if I disappear for the next two weeks know it’s because we are thoroughly enjoying Midsummer in Sweden!
