Menu Monday

I have been a little busy for a few days while I watched my sister...

...become a wife!

Well, I don't think "watched" is exactly the right word. I can think of a million verbs to describe the things I did during the wedding weekend, and "watched" is barely one of them. It was a whirlwind week and weekend, and from Thursday until Saturday night I took only two 5-hour breaks to sleep, and that was it. I don't have all my photos and thoughts quite organized from the weekend, but I will be posting a lot about the amazing wedding and reception once I do!

So today instead of writing about the wedding, I'm going to share my weekly menu. I've seen a lot of other bloggers do this, and I love to read theirs because it gives me great ideas for meals. Also, on Pinterest, one of my in-real-life friends jokingly commented that I should post a picture of my chalkboard menu every week so she knows what to make :-P

So I've decided to do that on the blog. I don't know how often I'll do it, but I think it will keep me motivated to plan my meals, which is helpful during the week, and saves money at the grocery store. Also, most of the recipes I use are found online (using pinterest!) so I'm going to share the links as well.

I don't plan my meals for certain days of the week. Our schedule is too unpredictable and that doesn't work for us. But I do like to think of 5 or 6 good meals to make during the week. We usually have at least one night where we eat out, or eat something really simple like hot dogs or mac and cheese from the box :-P


  1. Haha, I totally do that too, but I don't have a cute chalkboard! Your menu made me hungry as well! :)

  2. Best wishes to your sister!!

  3. I've been wanting to make PW's taco pizza!! You'll have to post about it!


Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment! I read and appreciate each and every one. Blessings to you!
