Meal Plan for the Week of July 7, 2018

We’re having a heat wave, and it’s not letting up this week, so quick and easy is the theme. We have friends with young kids coming over to barbecue on Sunday and we’re sticking to pretty basic BBQ food–hamburgers, hot dogs, and potato salad, and a quick, easy and delicious no-bake dessert so we get treats without the heat in the kitchen.  I have a busy day on Tuesday with back-to-back client meetings, and the a Wine Social at night–luck me!–so its pizza for the boys.  They have opted for Naan Pizza rather than take out.

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.
