Weekly Menu Plan + Top 5 “Stock Up and Save” (6.15.18)


Well, it’s summer and it’s hot and it’s all things wonderful. Just this week I prepared a double batch of Spinach Roll Ups, Zucchini Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies, and Chicken and Cheese Taquitos. Can I just tell you how gratifying it was to add a few things to my freezer?? And do you know how long it took me to do this? Me either…but I can tell you it wasn’t long. Honestly, it doesn’t take that much longer to just prepare a double batch instead of one dish. And now, when we are in the midst of doing something fun we won’t have to stop. Supper is practically on the table. Summer score!
