    Week 729 Weekly Menu

    Hello! This week I’m only one day late and a dollar shot. Progress! Last week the company I work for ended up hosting a large virtual conference the same week as quarterly earnings and announcing a new CEO…and I was involved in the communications for all of it. I ended up cooking only one of our Hello Fresh kits (well, actually, my 13-yo cooked it), so this week we have a lot of Hello Fresh meals to eat. Fine by me! (And no, actually, this blog is not sponsored by Hello Fresh.)

    Week 729 Weekly Dinner Menu from This Week for Dinner


    • Homemade Honduran Baleadas (thanks to my talented sister-in-law Cora – we are planning to do a post and share the recipe soon!)


    • Italian chicken over lemony spaghetti


    • Sweet chili pork bowls


    • Firecracker Meatballs


    • Citrus pork tacos


    • Leftovers


    • Cheesy smothered mushroom chicken

    Your turn! Share your menus in the comments below! And THANK YOU for all your kind thoughts last week, it means so much.

    Week 480 Weekly Menu = VACATION!

    Good morning (or afternoon or whatever it is when you read this)! It’s my kids’ spring break this week and I am ready to really enjoy the time with them! I’ve been working like a crazy person the last two weeks so that I can unplug, at least for a few days. We’re going to do some fun staycation stuff (hello, beach and¬†Legoland), a little bit of camping, and a little bit of nothing.

    In the spirit of our awesome Spring Break, I am also taking a break from planning the weekly menu! First off, I have no idea what each day is going to be like. Secondly, I hardly¬†ever give myself a break from the meal plan, so this felt like a good week to do it! ūüėČ

    If you’d like to get inspiration from older menus, click here!

    And, PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE, post your plan for this week below so that you all can get ideas from each other! 

    Thanks, everyone! See you in a few days!

    Week 442 Menu + Show and Tell!

    Happy Sunday, everyone! So, today’s menu post is a bit unusual. First, I’m sharing Friday’s Show and Tell links with you today because, quite honestly, I forgot to share them on Friday. The kids and I were having too much summer fun!

    Second, I don’t have a menu planned for this week!¬†The kids and I leave on Tuesday to visit family on the east coast, so I honestly have no clue what our food plans will be. If you need inspiration, click here to see menus from past weeks. I always read through everyone’s comments on older menu posts to get ideas when I do my own planning each week. They are¬†such a great resource! Also, just because I am not posting a menu doesn’t mean you can’t! If you have a menu planned, please share¬†it in the comments!!!

    For Show and Tell this week, I have several things to share with you!

    That’s it for today! As I mentioned earlier, please post your menus in the comments. We especially need you on these weeks I’m traveling to provide inspiration for others!¬†Thank you in advance and have a wonderful week!
