    Week 672 Weekly Menu

    You guys. I sat down to do my menu THREE HOURS AGO. I decided to write a quick post about my new favorite pectin and ended up going down a very deep freezer jam rabbit hole, writing the new post and updating old ones. My back kind of hurts and now I have to do my grocery shopping tonight instead of this morning, but it was worth it. Click here for my new freezer jam post, that turned out to be a true labor of love! And now finally on to my meal plan for the week!

    Week 672 Weekly Dinner Plan: Monday - Enchiladas; Tuesday - Homemade Pizza; Wednesday - Salmon; Thursday - Cheeseburgers; Friday - Local Takeout; Saturday - Grill Night; Sunday - Buffalo Wings

    Please note that my consistent weekly meal planning is not a sign of bliss…I am 100% sick of my kitchen, but am trying to maintain that sometimes elusive “attitude of gratitude” to get me through the meal-planning-and-cooking quarantine grind. It’s mostly working. 😉

    Homemade Pizza

    WEDNESDAY:

    – Wild Rice and Salad
