Week 451 Menu

Happy New Week, Everyone!

week 451 weekly menu from @janemaynard including FREE printable meal plan and shopping list!

I have a few carry-over items from last week’s meal plan because it was CRAZY HOT this past week and I ended up cooking only a few nights. One of the nights I actually cooked I was wearing my swimming suit. I think officially makes me a Californian, right? Here’s hoping we have 10-20 LESS degrees on the thermometer this week!

–Caprese Salad with Crusty Bread

– Coconut Curry Chicken with Rice (sauce from Costco)
– Veggie

– BLTs
– Fresh Fruit

– Leftovers

– Nate and I will be attending Beyond Hunger: A Place at the Table with Heifer International in Beverly Hills! I am SO excited, and not just because I get to wear a sparkly dress and see tons of celebrities. The speakers are going to be phenomenal and we’re having a Malawi trip reunion!
– I’ll either leave pizza money for the babysitter or try to pull something together for their dinner before I head to LA (taking bets on what will actually happen!)

– Eat out

– Pasta in Cream Sauce with broccoli and chicken added

    • what in the world is a chicken fried cheeseburger? very curious!

    • Jane, my kids have started thinking of recipes they want me to make, and my second son thought of fried cheeseburgers, so we made hamburgers, battered and fried, then topped with cheese and curly fries and toppings. Everyone thought they were the best, my husband said he wanted more of them, and I couldn’t finish mine :). It was a crazy calorie bomb, but the family was happy :).

    • that is so awesome – love the evolution of the dish, and that you couldn’t eat it all! 😉 might have to try it sometime!
