Week 722 Weekly Dinner Menu

Hello! Long time no talk! In the 14+ years of writing this blog, I have never taken a summer break from meal planning. But this year, with my hand and two somewhat complicated trips (including getting a puppy!), I gave myself some space and it was the right thing to do. But now it’s back to real life, including the weekly menu! I am allowed to start using my hand like “normal” again this week, so cooking is in our near future! (Thumb update: I can bend the joint, it’s still not normal, and it will take quite some time to see the ultimate result…but we’re making progress!)
