Weekly Menu Plan + Top 5 “Stock Up and Save” (6.22.18)


Raise your hand if you’re planning a road trip this summer! Me!! Me!! Our crew loves a road trip. I mean…LOVES a road trip. Some of our favorite family memories take place in the car or while on vacation. I’m not sure what it is. Maybe it’s because, as parents, our attention is fully given to the vacation. Or perhaps it’s because we too have fond memories of vacations from when we were children. Regardless of the reason, road trips are just fun. You may need a few activities for the car or perhaps a few freezer meals packed to go, whatever the case may be, we sure hope your summer is a blast!
