We were kind of lazy yesterday, relaxing, keeping cool, resting up for the week to come. I now find it a little easier to sleep in a little longer these days but not much. It was nice to stay home and not have to worry about going anywhere. I did make a favorite for dinner, Jalapeno Tequila Lime Chili. It was quick, easy and very flavorful.
So now I’m wide awake, second cup of coffee in hand and working on the game plan for this week’s meal plan. I’m not going to go overboard on the meal plan for the week. After all, it’s summer vacation. So let’s keep it simple and have a easy summer weekly meal plan.
Summer breakfast and lunches will continue as normal, keeping to the basic rotation. It’s working, so why change it?
