Hey Friends! Today, I’m sharing my family’s meal plan for the next 2 weeks! I’ve had a pretty busy weekend, so I’m a day late! But better late than never, right?!
You’ll notice on my meal plan this week that we have a rehearsal dinner and wedding at the end of the week! My husband is going to be a groomsman in one of his friend’s weddings, so we will be having a fun wedding weekend! One added perk of a wedding was that I got to pick out my baby boy’s first “formal” clothes! How exciting!! I picked out the cutest outfit (Carter’s of course) pair of dress pants with embroidered nautical designs, a pair of suspenders and a little dress shirt onesie! He looks so handsome in it!! I can’t wait to dress him up for the wedding!!
Also, you may notice that a few meals from my last meal plan are re-appearing on my menu for this week. So, whenever we have something come up that changes our meal-plan, I simply shift the meals that I didn’t use from the last 2 week period and move them to the new meal list. This is when it is so important to be flexible. Whether it’s making last-minute plans with friends, stopping at a restaurant because it was a busy day, or simply having leftovers from the day before, it’s always important to be flexible with your meal plan. The one thing that really effected our meal plan over the last 2 weeks was having a lot of leftovers. The batch of hobo beans that I made lasted us several days and we also had a lot of leftover pizza from a visit with some friends. Having leftovers for a dinner is a great way to ensure that food doesn’t go to waste. It also helps your grocery budget stretch a little bit further the following week because you already have ingredients for several meals that you maybe didn’t get to make the week before.
So, here is what meals I am planning for my family over the next 2 weeks! My hope is that my ideas will inspire you in your own meal-planning adventure! You know from my previous posts that I am pretty passionate about meal-planning. It has made such a huge difference for our family. It brings so much peace and order to our evening routine and makes my life so much less stressful! And who doesn’t like less stress-I know I do!!
