Hi Everyone! Hope you enjoyed your weekend with family and friends! Do anything fun? We kicked off our weekend with our son coming home from science camp last Friday. Boy, did we miss him!
On Saturday, we spent a majority of the day with a booth at our school’s swap meet and e-waste fundraiser. It was a great turn out for all who participated and we filled a little more than one bin full of e-waste. We not only raised money for our school but we also added extra funds to our Disneyland trip at the end of the year.
This week’s menu, is a collection of traditional family favorites with a big difference. They’re light and they’re simple. I’m transforming those childhood comfort foods into updated, healthier versions than you can prepare easily and quickly allowing for more time with family and friends around the table.
My weekly meal plan and shopping list is completed and posted on our fridge:
Chicken Salad Sandwiches, Pizza bagels, leftovers, protein shakes, salad, fresh cut veggies and/or fruit

Need ideas for your weekly meal plan? It’s time for another weekly menu. I enjoy menu planning because of the simplicity it provides for my life. It enables me to decrease my grocery shopping excursions to twice a month and it allows me to have more free time to focus on my family and home. For ideas in the weekly meal plan, we’ll be focusing on a variety of family meals. You’ll find the recipes on the weekly meal plan also available on my Recipe Index page with a grocery list included.
