Week 494 Weekly Menu

Hello, friends! I’ve been quiet on the blog and Facebook page this past week because, well, what a week it has been. I don’t even know what to say at this point except I’m doing what I can to amplify light in this world. Light is my focus. And love.

We had a good weekend, away from phones and computers, with friends and family. And now, here it is, time to plan another menu. We have a quiet week this week, which the kids and I are both really looking forward to. I’m hoping it means we’ll have some time to cook together, too!

Chicken Tortilla Soup (this recipe keeps NOT happening, but I WANT it to happen, so on the menu it goes once again!)

– Stir Fry and Potstickers

– Margherita Pizza

– Leftovers

Chickpea Veggie Burgers

Phil’s BBQ with a friend

Lentil Soup

My computer with my weekly menu files is acting up tonight, so I’ll get the PDF posted tomorrow.

As usual, please share your wonderful menus in the comments! They really are such a help each week as I plan, and I’m sure it’s a help for many others, too!
