Weekly Meal Plan #63

We are starting a new format for our Weekly Meal Plan posts. We will each take turns sharing something that was a highlight from our week, whether that is a new recipe, something that surprised us (good or bad), or something that we find helpful to point out.

My reminder to myself for this week is that sometimes I need to give myself a break. You can’t be all-in and on top of things every day. And sometimes that means that plans fall through. Forgive yourself. Feed your family, yes. If it happens to be boxed Mac and cheese or Take out pizza, okay. As long as that’s not every day, I think everyone will be fine. At least that’s what I tell myself. 😉
