I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July. We had a fun day but made it home nice and early. Our kids are still too young for fireworks so we didn’t get too crazy.
I didn’t post a meal plan last week but I’ve been getting some great meal ideas with my new subscription to The Six O’Clock ScrambleNewsletter. If you are struggling with meal planning, I highly recommend you try it out. Each week you get a week of meals, recipes for each meal and a grocery list. I made a tasty tilapia dish that even my daughter tried (see successes below).
I’m cooking less this week because we are going out to dinner on Monday for my mother-in-law’s birthday. I plan to try this awesome looking halibut from Food on the Table’s No Whine Wednesday that incorporates a fruit-based salsa. I’ll make salmon and bean burritos for lunch to get to my fish and beans twice a week goal.
I’m having a little trouble coming up with an 8-hour plus slow cooker recipe for Wednesday (work day) now that’s it’s summer. The meals that look appealing to me are not “all day” slow cooker dishes. If you have any long slow-cook meals you like send them my way!
