    Week 711 Weekly Menu

    Hello friends! I’m calling it in today as the giant splint on my thumb makes typing and graphic design near impossible. SO…I am setting setting up the menu post so you all can share and inspire all of us!

    We don’t have Hello Fresh meals coming this week (whoops) and I for real have no idea what we’re going to do for dinner. We’re heading out for a quick road trip with the kids right now, so I’m devoting my brain energy to that instead of a menu I probably can’t cook. 😉

    Please share your menu for the week in the comments below. As you can tell, I certainly need it and I’m sure I’m not the only one! Also, you can click here to peruse through all past menus!

    Last week I did something I rarely do…well, I DIDN’T do something I normally do. I did not post a weekly menu! I’ll be honest, it’s been a wild month for my thumb.

Thankfully between Nate and dear friends we are buried in food.

    Week 708 Weekly Menu

    Nate smoked 10 pounds of pork shoulder this weekend and we are all once again super glad we got him a Traeger grill for Christmas. Going to re-purpose the pork for enchiladas with a red sauce and tacos with pickled onions. 

    Quick hand surgery update: procedure ended up not happening last week but is instead scheduled for 1/25. So I’m planning to cook a lot this week, then next week getting Hello Fresh for the kids and Nate to cook. Not at all excited about the assessment by the surgeon last week but grateful for professionals who can fix this useless thumb for me.

    Week 708 Weekly Dinner Menu

    MONDAY:

    • Leftovers

    TUESDAY:

    • Enchiladas

    • Taco Night
