Menu Plan Monday 7/9/18



Woohoo! This is our vacation week. I am so totally excited. Every year we head up to the mountains of western NC for a week of R&R. It is nice to get away with my family to a place that doesn’t really have great cell phone reception or super reliable internet where we can hang out and go hiking and enjoy the outdoors and just spend time together. I do cook when we’re on vacation, because let’s face it, eating out every night is expensive. However, I try to keep my meals simple and easy so I can spend less time in the kitchen and more time relaxing. This is my vacation menu:

Monday: Mexican Chicken Salad

Tuesday: Shepherd’s Pie

Wednesday: Spaghetti

Dinner out: (it’s our 21st anniversary!)

Friday: hamburgers/hot dogs down by the lake

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a great week!
