As part of my blog update, you all can expect a monthly meal plan post. I’ll be sharing what I’m making for the upcoming four weeks, with links to all the recipes. These posts will include recipes I’ve never made before (and some oldies), so if you’re looking exclusively for tried and true, please keep an eye out for my recipe round up posts.
In case you missed it, I recently talked about how and why I meal plan for a month at a time. If you’re interested in reading more, you can find it here.
I technically only meal plan for a family breakfast on Sundays – the rest of the week is leftovers or other regular breakfast food (ie: bagels, cereal, pop tarts, etc.) We do weekly meal prep for lunches on Sundays – enough for five weekday lunches for two adults. Recipes marked with an asterik are recipes that I have made before and my family has deemed delicious! 🙂 Oh, and I’m big on having seasonal or fun food to go with whatever holiday is happening. Let the shenanigans begin!

Blueberry Breakfast Grilled Cheese: Take two slices of Blueberry Swirl Bread and butter each slice on one side. On one slice, not the buttered side, smear 1 – 2 tablespoons of whipped cream cheese spread; repeat on the other slice, using blueberry jam instead of cream cheese. Make a sandwich, with the buttered sides facing out, and place on a hot skillet or panini press; cook until bread is golden and cream cheese is slightly melty.
Don’t want to use the whole meal plan? My top three MUST makes are: blueberry breakfast grilled cheese, danish hot dogs and bangers and mash.
