Weekly Meal Plan {5/24}

So I almost didn’t post a meal plan post this week because ours was a bit…meh. We’re trying really hard to just eat through what we already have in our fridge/freezer, so there wasn’t much of anything fancy this past week. But hey, we can’t all eat like kings every week! And, besides, it’s kinda hard to do that when half of your kitchen is packed away in boxes…

I have no idea what the week to come will look like on the meal planning front (since I’m not really planning much of anything!), but here’s a look at what we threw together this past week.

Sunday: Cheeseburgers on the grill with potato salad and green beans


Monday: Turkey sandwiches with chips and…more green beans


I used a recycled photo because I was too lazy to grab the camera. Plus, these looked better than the ones we made this week.

Tuesday: Fish sticks with sweet potato fries and…more green beans

I bought the fish sticks a while back from Trader Joe’s thinking they’d be good for Lucas, but he’s not really a fan. So I’ll eat ‘em instead!

Wednesday: Leftover chili from the freezer with homemade cornbread

Thursday: BLT sandwiches with french fries

Another recycled photo for this one!

Friday: Mediterranean Arugula & Tomato wood fired pizza

And before you think I got all fancy and made it homemade…
