Week 126 Menu…Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there! Hope it’s been a great day!

Cate and I got up early this morning and made Nate’s grandmother’s blueberry muffins for him. The muffins were divine, as always…and the batter was pretty darn good too. This is honestly my favorite batter (yes, I’m a dough and batter eater), even more than chocolate cake mix. And that’s saying something.

– Spaghetti (I know, we’ve been eating this a lot lately…but BOTH girls actually gobble it up, so gotta run with it)

– Nate’s Birthday…celebration meal TBD!

– Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup

Asian Spinach Salad

– Hot Dogs
– Fresh Fruit

– Eat out

– Nachos Supreme, whatever that means 😉 

This isn’t the fanciest menu, but keeping it real for a busy week.  

PLEASE SHARE YOUR MENUS! And don’t worry if your menu gets posted later in the week.  I peruse them the following Sunday, so keep ’em coming all week!
