    Week 584 Weekly Menu

    Hello meal planning and food friends. I wish I could say I missed you the last two weeks, but our trip to Sweden was pretty darn spectacular and I didn’t miss meal planning and cooking one bit! But alas it is back to normal this week, which is definitely not a bad thing, actually. Since it’s going to be pretty warm this week and we’re all craving wholesome food, we’re going heavy on salads and summer-friendly meals for the weekly menu.

    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.

    Weekly dinner plans - Week 583 Weekly Menu from This Week for Dinner

    Salad

    THURSDAY:
    – English Muffin Pizzas

    FRIDAY:
    – Hot dogs

    I’m going to buy a few other prepared dinner items from Trader Joe’s and I think that should keep everyone covered on the home front. Everyone wish Grampa Herms good luck!

    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!
