Week 765 Weekly Menu

I completely spaced last week and didn’t realize I hadn’t planned until Tuesday! And the way we ate last week reflected that bad planning…a lot of eating out and “what should we do for dinner?”s at like 7:00 pm. It was no bueno. My brain is back in order, so here we go.

week 765 weekly dinner menu from this week for dinner






  • Leftovers


  • Takeout night


  • Smoked chicken, potatoes and salad

      Sarah, I HIGHLY recommend the “Keepers” cookbook. They’re simple and so good. Never a dud; always good for a weeknight dinner. 🙂
