I love to menu plan! It really helps put delicious homemade meals on your kitchen table each night. It also helps me prep what I can in the morning when I’m at my best and puttering around the house. My least productive time is around 4:30 in the afternoon, just when I should be starting dinner. If I don’t have a plan I fall back on my default… take-out! A menu plan is just that… a plan. Things change, stuff happens so I don’t get crazy trying to always stick to it! And some days I just don’t want to cook. On those days I don’t sweat it and order in Chinese food! YUM! Here’s what’s on the menu this week…
I’ve been finding tons of amazing looking recipes from foodie bloggers and I want to try them all!!!! This week I’m trying three new recipes. They all look so mouth watering and delicious!
- GRILLED BALSAMIC FLANK STEAK ON SKEWERS

I’m drawn to Alyssa’s blog THE RECIPE CRITIC like a moth to a flame! Her recipes look scrumptious and her recipes are always so good! If you have never visited her site, take some time and dive into her culinary world. YUM!
Zucchini Boats say “summer” to me! Even though my garden zucchini are not ready yet there are wonderful ones at my grocer’s. So we are enjoying this much overlooked little vegetable even before my plants have blooms on them! Zucchini Boats are a very healthy option for a weeknight meal!
