It’s back to the real world, the daily grind. Back to cooking and planning and shopping. Back to all those things I can’t wait to get away from but then somehow can’t wait to get back to. After a long and much needed vacation, I’m ready to settle in and get back to a routine. I love a routine…until I don’t. But right now, routine it is.
I love sitting down with my cookbooks and my pinterest account. Figuring out what sounds good, what new recipe to try…what new recipe will my family be willing to try. What side dishes and salads will round out a meal, what produce is in season and how can I serve it so that everyone will not only eat it, but look forward to it.
It’s weird, I know, but there it is. I really enjoy meal planning.
So here’s this weeks meal plan. Enjoy.
We’re travelling in a week for a 3 week road trip to visit with family and friends. We are all bubbling with excitement, ready for this trip to start already. You know that feeling, one foot in the door, one foot out. That’s how I feel. Part of me wants to load up on all the veggies I know I am not going to be getting for the next few weeks and the other part wants to let the party get started. Veggie loading it is, sprinkled with a little bit of party.
Here is this week’s menu. I keep thinking about writing a bit more, but I never quite get around to it. So on the advice of a good friend, I am going to keep it simple and give you my menu.
