Week 397 Menu

Hi there. I can’t believe it’s time to plan another menu…here we go!

week 397 weekly dinner menu from @janemaynard including FREE printable meal plan and shopping list

So, I completely underestimated what an interruption to normal life repiping our house would be this past week. I didn’t cook once. We’re almost back to normal now and I actually am cooking this afternoon, which will be nice! Needless to say, lots of repeats on my menu this week from last. (For those of you in California and Nevada, if you are ever in need of repiping your home, see below for info on the company we used.*)

– Happy Labor Day!
– Hot dogs & hamburgers on the grill

– Chicken Caesar Wraps
– Fresh fruit and carrot sticks

– Homemade pizza night (flavors TBD!)

– Taco night

– Leftovers

– Breakfast for Dinner: Waffles

– BBQ Chicken on the Grill

Click here for the free printable of this week’s menu plus the shopping list!

Your turn! Share your menu for the week, pretty please with a cherry on top!

*Repiping info for California and Nevada folks: Repipe 1 was the company we used and they were fantastic. Their prices are phenomenal, they are super organized and timely, and the customer service has been great. I highly recommend them. The only issue we had was with the crew that patched up our walls. I won’t go into the too much detail, but the biggest issue was that they should have done a much better job putting plastic over our belongings, which ended up being a major headache for me. The company was quick to respond, however, and offered to come out and help clean everything (which I declined in the end and just did it myself). Even with a few hiccups on patch day, I still highly recommend them.
