Weekly Menu: Week 25 (6/17/13-6/21/13)

It’s time for another menu…already!

Baby girl and I are headed to the beach this afternoon, and we don’t return until Saturday…just in time to host a Father’s Day party for our family and friends (p.s…I’m pretty excited about making this Tomato Potato Zucchini Summer Squash “Casserole”)! It should be interesting preparing for a party in addition to preparing everything for next week’s menu!

Luckily, I’ve made it pretty simple on myself. Most of the breakfast items are from my freezer, I added 2 (extremely easy) slow cooker recipes to the menu, some “slap ’em together and throw ’em in the oven” tacos, and a muffin recipe. Simple stuff, guys.

If ever there was a week to jump into the mix, this is it. If you are just starting, begin by just making the new recipes, and piece-in and improvise your way through the recipes that you don’t have in your freezer yet. In a few weeks, you’ll have all of the freezer-stock recipes on-hand, and you will be right on schedule with me.

This recipe has me the most excited this week:

Weekly Menu: Week 20

Happy Friday!!

I’ve seriously waited all week for today. It’s finally the weekend!

I’m starting to feel normal again. I hate to jinx myself, but I think that I am slowly approaching that wonderful “honeymoon” phase of my pregnancy. The “morning” sickness (which was really more of an “all-day” sickness) is happening less and less frequently, I haven’t been wanting to curl up in a ball on the sofa at 5:30 each day, and miracle of all miracles…I ate BEEF last night!

But then I had debilitating gas pain until approximately 2AM. So, there’s that.

Someday meat might return to the menu, but I’m clearly not ready yet.

I was informed this afternoon that a quick glance at my recent pins on Pinterest shows primarily pictures of pasta and various other forms of carb deliciousness.

And…that is a very valid point. But there are some bird feeders and gardening ideas thrown in there for good measure!

This week is no less carb-centric, so I’m going to apologize in advance.
