Our Weekly Meal Plan

It’s been a few weeks since I shared our weekly meal plan and I’ll admit, it’s mostly due to the fact that I just haven’t been home that much and I just haven’t been into planning meals lately.

We’ve been camping a few times (a camping menu plan coming soon!) in the past few weeks or at the lake for 4th of July, therefore I’ve slacked off on really meal planning for an entire “week”. Full disclosure, we had McDonalds for dinner last night (and it was delicious!). Sometimes you just hit a slump.

However, we are back home now and I did a quick meal plan yesterday, along with a grocery store run.
