Weekly Meal Plan {4/27-5/3} + Tip #2

Weekly Menu Plan: GrowinginHisGlory.com

The next few weeks are busy ones as our regular activities wind down for the summer. We’ve finished all of our kindergarten work for the year, so we’re making a transition into a short break from homeschooling {I’ll clue you in to what we’ll be doing in May very soon. I’m really excited!}. Also, my sweet baby girl turns TWO next Sunday.

If you’re like me — busy as a bee with all the end-of-the-school-year activities, then a weekly meal plan totally makes life simpler and easier. You don’t necessarily have to eat the meals you choose on a designated day of the week. Often, I will see what I’d planned for Monday night dinner and not be in the mood for it, so we’ll switch that meal to another night. However, having a meal plan gives you the freedom to be flexible.

Should you need some meal planning inspiration, here’s what’s on our menu this week:


Spinach Strawberry Salad with Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette | GrowinginHisGlory.com

Lunch at church (I’m taking my Spinach Strawberry Salad with Balsamic Dressing & homemade rolls.)


Taking dinner to a friend with a new baby (Pioneer Woman’s Pot Roast with carrots & onions, Creamy Mashed Potatoes, green beans, & Honey Whole Wheat Rolls).


Baked spaghetti (Double & take to a friend), corn, salad, & these delicious Garlic Breadsticks


Pioneer Woman’s Broccoli-Cheese Soup (Can you tell we like the Pioneer Woman’s recipes? Broccoli is in season, ya’ll! ) & bread maker rolls


Blackened Fish Tacos with Spanish Rice & black beans


It’s Pizza Night!! Celebrating our Annabeth’s 2nd birthday at our favorite pizza place: Mellow Mushroom.




Meal planning tip #2:

 Last week I recommended compiling a list of favorite family recipes that you can draw from as you sit down and plan your weekly meal plan. If you’re struggling to come up with a good 5-6 meals your family loves, then you might could use some additional resources. I have a handful of physical cookbooks that I use periodically, but most of my recipes come from online sources. These are some favorites:

Blessings to you & your family this week!
