It's that time again! Week One was a weird one for us this time around. We had some family visiting and different things going on, so we had a lot of dinners at my parent's house. So, it wasn't a great week as far as meal-planning goes, but that's life for ya'!
Monday - Family Dinner
Tuesday - Grilled Chicken Sandwiches
Can you tell this is one of my go-to meals when I don't know what else to do? Since I wasn't quite sure what the week would look like, I just planned for simple and fast things I could throw together without really thinking about.
Wednesday - Family Dinner
Thursday - Family Dinner
Friday - Beef Tacos
Just regular old ground beef tacos. My husband was actually really happy about this one! Sometimes I forget that it's the easiest and simplest meals that are some of his favorites!
Saturday - Pizza Night
Sunday - Leftovers
Monday - Chicken Yakisoba
I've made this before and it is a hit! It's easy to make and Makayla loves anything with noodles, so this one is good as far as she's concerned!
Tuesday - Family Dinner
Wednesday - Picnic Dinner
We were planning on going out to the lake and taking a picnic dinner, but just as we were about to leave, the sunshine disappeared and it started to rain. Sigh. So we gave up on our plans and threw a pizza in the oven. It's a really good thing we like pizza!
Thursday - Chicken Parmesan Meatballs
This was on our last meal plan, but I never did get to make it. So we tried it this time, and it was super yummy! I did cheat and use a jar of marinara instead of making the sauce, but it was still so good. We will definitely make this one again.
Friday - Leftovers
Saturday - Creamy Tomato Soup
During the fall, it is almost always Soup Saturday at our house! I love to have a pot of soup simmering all afternoon while the weather outside is crisp! This soup is one of our favorites, and it goes perfectly with a grilled cheese sandwich. Especially if the cheese is havarti and the bread is sourdough.....but that's just my opinion! I taught Makayla how to dunk her sandwich, and she quickly mastered the skill!
Sunday - Birthday Dinner Out
It was my mom's birthday, so we went out to celebrate her!
Y'all - make this. It is so, so good. I subbed blueberries for the cherries.
These were good, although I actually ended up enjoying them better the next day. The first night, I thought they were way too tart, but the second day, I thought they were perfect! So I don't know - maybe my taste buds were just off or something, but I will definitely make these again.
