Week 752 Weekly Menu

Well, week one back on the meal planning train went great. In fact, at one point last week Anna said, “What is this magical book that means home-cooked meals every night?” It was so cute! So far I am completely loving The Ultimate Meal Prep Cookbook. (Thank you, Bonnie!) Although this week it’s a mix up of their recipes and my own – looking to minimize time standing at the stove thanks to another warm week of weather!

Week 752 Weekly Dinner Menu


  • Skillet Tortellini with Sausage and Tomatoes


  • Homemade hamburgers


  • Chicken Caesar Salad


  • Spaghetti and meatballs (I have some meatballs in the freezer)


  • Leftovers


  • Takeout night


  • Smoked pork butt with grilled veggies
