Week 583 Weekly Menu

Hello meal planning friends! SO….this week Nate and I are heading to Sweden to spend some time with my parents, siblings and sister-in-law. My dad was born in Stockholm and none of his children have been to Sweden, so now we are all finally going together…without kids! I keep joking that the plane ride with Nate will feel like an extended date. 😉

My in-laws are coming to watch the kids and for the first few days it’s just my (angelic) father-in-law holding down the fort, so we’re picking simple and easy meals for them to prepare together this week.

Weekly dinner plans - Week 583 Weekly Menu from This Week for Dinner

– Pesto Chicken Pasta

– Eat out

– Spaghetti

– English Muffin Pizzas

– Hot dogs
– Watermelon

– Eat out

– Trader Joe’s Frozen Mac & Cheese
– Salad

I’m going to buy a few other prepared dinner items from Trader Joe’s and I think that should keep everyone covered on the home front. Everyone wish Grampa Herms good luck!

You all know the drill, please post your menu in the comments below! And if I disappear for the next two weeks know it’s because we are thoroughly enjoying Midsummer in Sweden!
