Weekly meal plan ideas to help with breakfast and dinner. Weekly Plan 4.
This past week we didn't adhere to our menu plan very well.
Colt called me Friday afternoon and asked me out to a dinner date. How could I say no? The last few months we've been awful about dating so I was super excited.
He surprised me pizza for the kids, flowers and movie tickets to see Divergent since we had both read the book. We had a great time other then my constant shifting from my back acting up from sitting too long, even with a few trips to the bathroom so I didn't just look like a weirdo standing in the back of a movie theater. He had tried to reserve the reclining seats at ipic but they had already been reserved, he really went out of his way to set up a great date.
Then Saturday morning we had to head to Kirkland for a blood test for our health insurance and we couldn't eat for 12 hours before hand so we enjoyed breakfast out. It was like having another date day.
On the way home we stopped at Trader Joes and somehow during check out Colt told the girl in the check out he married a model. I just about died. The last time I modeled was when I was 2 years old, I really don't feel like that qualifies but she thought it was the cutest thing ever and she was pregnant so next thing I know she's tearing up. I have to watch him closely.....
By Sunday Buddy our dog really wasn't feeling well so Monday we brought him into the vet. It looks like it was just an ear infection, I was pretty sure our dog was dyeing but he seems to be doing a lot better today and was back to begging at the dinner table last night. I never thought I would say I was thankful he was in the kitchen begging.
Hopefully we'll be back on track this following week.
The names of the recipes are links directly to the recipes. At the bottom of each post there is a blue recipe tab right before the directions for the recipe. This tab can be used to save ingredient list in Ziplist and to create a shopping list for the ingredients you will need for the week. I love Ziplist because it's taken the hassle out of trying to figure out what I need for each recipe before I head to the store, it does all the work for you.

We make a double batch of these on Sunday morning and freeze the leftovers immediately on a cookie sheet before storing in a ziploc bag for an easy weekday breakfast option. We just reheat the leftovers in the toaster.
