Weekly Family Menu Plan - 5 weeknight dinners, a weekend breakfast, and a yummy dessert!

Happy Saturday, guys!


We went out for waffles this morning but not much else planned yet.

This week’s menu plan is ready and extra delicious! We have one of my favorite soups (seriously, you have to make it!), a quick stir fry, skillet bread, a quick and easy pasta, and the ultimate comfort food, shepherd’s pie! Plus, a sweet and salty treat, coffee cake, and energy bites!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Make sure you print your grocery list before you head to the store!

Happy Halloween y’all!

Man, we got SO MUCH RAIN yesterday. Hopefully it’s all done so we go trick-or-treating tonight!

This week’s family menu plan looks delicious as always. We have a couple warm and cozy soup recipes, two slow cooker meals, and pasta with squash sauce! My fave! Plus, coffee cake (cake for breakfast! woohoo!) and brownies!

I hope you have a fun Halloween and if you’ve already done your trick-or-treating, I hope you enjoy all the candy you can steal from your kids!

Happy Friday guys!

What do you think about when you think comforts from home? Something yummy? Chocolate cake? Maybe something your mom made growing up? Or maybe a specific recipe that you make every time you’re feeling a little under the weather?

Any kind of casserole made with rice is my go-to comfort item. I hardly ever eat rice, unless I need something comforting. And it has to have a yummy sauce and be covered in melty cheese! I also go for regular (non diet!) soda, on lots of ice, from a fountain. Weird, right?
