We still have another month of summer with the kids and my goal is to soak up all the quality time, sunshine, activities and outings as we can while also reintroducing some of that good old fashioned structure back into our lives so back to school isn’t quite so abrupt. Food and mealtime is one of the best and easiest places to start for me so I’m back to planning our meals and stocking the pantry. Here’s whats on the menu this week!
(mexi)MONDAY – Huevos Rancheros with Roasted Sweet Potatoes
TUESDAY – Grilled Chicken + Summer Veggie Skewers, add whatever veggies look fresh and grill-able at the store like summer squash and serve with couscous
WEDNESDAY – Eat Out or Takeout and MOVIE NIGHT with friends!!!
THURSDAY – Slow Cooker Beef Carnitas Tacos, this is also Johan’s Birthday dinner so the menu might change based on what he wants but I figured anything involving beef was a safe bet!
FRIDAY – BBQ Chicken Cobb Salad + Mini Grilled Cheeses
SATURDAY – Eat Out or Takeout
SUNDAY – Easy Meatball Sliders
BREKKIE – Oatmeal, Cereal, or Eggs — keeping it simple this week!
LUNCH – Sandwich Wraps, fruit, yogurt and popcorn
After posting the picture above on Instagram last week of our movie night snacks, I received a lot of questions about the food and drink trays. I bought a case of them originally for all the summer get togethers and Birthday parties but they also make movie night seem extra special and clean up extra easy. You can find the FOOD + DRINK TRAYS HERE and the PLASTIC CUPS + LIDS HERE.
Hope your week if off to a good start!
