Week 747 Weekly Menu

Long time no talk! I took a break on Mother’s Day, and then last week I just inadvertently took a break from meal planning…and cooking for that matter. I must admit, making dinner has been a real struggle lately, and it is only going to get worse these last weeks of school. I’m going to go ahead and make this plan and then be kind to myself should things go off the rails, again. Wish me luck!

  • Panda Village (this is our local plaza with a Panda Express, Rubio’s and Jersey Mikes affectionately known to my kids as Panda Village – choose your own adventure!)

    What a beautiful perspective on seasons of life! I need to learn to be okay with more “make it work” food-hard for me because I like cooking!

    Our menu for this week is:

    S/W: Teriyaki chicken and rice with mixed vegetables
    M: Leftover spaghetti my husband made
    T/Th: All-American beef tacos
    F/S: Leftovers/TBD

    • it’s so easy to get down on ourselves when we like cooking and value that…but gotta remember it’s okay if it doesn’t happen. I need a lot of positive self talk during this season, for sure! 😉
