Week 775 Weekly menu

Hello again! Unsurprisingly, the end of this school year got very busy and we have barely cooked at all over the last month. We officially have a high school graduate! It is hard to believe that Cate was only 2 years old when I started this blog. The time has felt both fast and slow. 

Our whole family is tired of eating out and squeaking by in the dinner department, so we’re excited to get back into the planning and cooking groove. 

Week 775 weekly dinner menu from This Week for Dinner


  • Leftover smoked brisket – maybe some delicious sandwiches?


  • Cookout food!





  • Leftovers


  • Smoked turkey breasts + fixings

Your turn! Share those menus in the comments!

    Welcome back. You were missed. Congrats to the new grad.

    It’s been hot here and I’m tired of cooking a lot of fancy meals. DH bought an Instant Pot thinking it would help, so I’ve been trying new things. Some work, some don’t.

    — IP/grilled wings (worked ok)
    — foil fish packets on the grill
    — IP chili dogs (ok, not great)
    — stir fry chicken, vegs, dumplings
    — pork chops, vegs
    — salad or leftovers
    — chicken something
