Meal Plan for the Week of June 23, 2018

You may have noticed I didn’t post a Meal Plan last week, and for that I apologize.  There were two reasons: 1) I created a Meal Plan knowing I was developing a cold, and promptly went to bed for about a week, and 2) when I finally got up and around my laptop had decided to stop recognizing that the Internet is a thing and wouldn’t acknowledge it, so even though I wanted to post, I couldn’t.  As a result of the first issue, even though I had developed the Plan with my impending sickness in mind and therefore easy-to-make meals, it didn’t get followed.  Those boys ate whatever they felt like making (cereal and sandwiches, I’m guessing).  As for the second reason, after a good 6 hours of playing and searching for the issue with the laptop, my husband found the problem and was able to rectify it.  This week we are repeating last week’s Lost Meal Plan, since it was a good one, and every now and then you want easy.

Because there are a few different preparations happening the recipe format is a little different this week. Continue reading

Meal Plan for the Week of May 5, 2018

Sorry this Plan is a little late this week.  They was a delay in getting my grocery flyers, and then I had needed to figure out whether or not I would have a grill to use this week.  Our old grill died a graceful death (not really, the bottom fell out of it!) after a moderately long but extremely productive life.  Since I make it a rule not to turn use the oven from, roughly, the May long weekend until about October, it is getting pretty critical for meal planning.  And with gorgeous weather in the forecast for the coming week, grilling is definitely in the Plan.  BBQ Achieved!
