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

Heeeeey guys, happy Saturday!

Plans?

I’d planned on going to the ice cream festival down in Austin but it’s looking like rain so maybe I’ll just stay home and watch Netflix all day. Maybe go pick up some Ben & Jerry’s. Who knows how wild it’ll get.

Any locals planning on braving the rain for ice cream? Snap me pictures! (Snapchat: amandalivesay)

Anyway, this week’s menu looks delicious. We’ve got lots of comfort-y food. A pot roast, cheesy potatoes, sticky chicken, breakfast sandwiches. Plus, enchiladas AND tacos. And a couple sweet treats because you deserve a treat.

S'mores Granola - eat your s'mores with a spoon! Crunchy granola with chocolate chunks, mini marshmallows, and Golden Grahams cereal!

Last day of S’mores Week!

I’m sad. Are you sad?

Don’t worry, Nicole and I have something very exciting coming up soon! Really soon.

Like, this weekend if we get our you-know-what together in time.

Spoiler: it involves me having an awkward conversation with a Target cashier at 9 pm last night about why I needed so many marshmallows and a jar of caramel sauce.

Okay, so this isn’t technically s’mores but how fun are s’mores made with sprinkle marshmallows?!

I’m obsessed.

But first, we haven’t talked Olympics.

Are you into it?

I really only care about the opening ceremony and gymnastics.

I was such a mess during the opening ceremony. I happy cried through most of it and I can’t even explain it. Every time they introduced a new country, I squealed, “Aww!” and started crying.

My kids left the room after the first 2 countries. No idea why.

S'mores Frozen Hot Chocolate! You won't believe how delicious this is!

Happy 3rd day of #SmoresWeek!

This one may be my favorite.

Except really, they’re all my favorite.

I can’t choose. You can’t make me.

But I really, really, really like this one.

Have you ever had a frozen hot chocolate? They are uhhhh-mazing and don’t even start with the, “Isn’t that just a chocolate shake?”

NO.

I used to think so, too, and then I tried one. It’s a hot chocolate. But frozen. And it will change your life.

Day 2 of #SmoresWeek!

This is kind of torturous for me because I decided to go paleo on Saturday or Sunday or somewhere around there. I can’t remember, my brain is not functioning correctly due to lack of pizza and sushi.

I’m not doing it longterm.

Also, not really paleo because I still put large amounts of splenda in my coffee and drink 15 Diet Pepsis a day.

But, foodwise… paleo.

It’s been…

Uggghhhh.

I just want a warm chocolate chip cookie.

That’s it. Just one cookie.

To distract myself, I’ve been binge-watching Wentworth. Have you seen it? It’s like Orange is the New Black but without the funny parts and I was bawling halfway through the first episode. It’s intense.
