    Weekly Meal Plan – August Week Four

    Yay – the school year has started! Our oldest is back in school and now, our meal plans have been altered a bit to include easy, whole-foods lunches that we can pack and send with him… along with healthy after-school snacks that I can make in advance and have ready for the afternoons. You’ll now find that the “lunch” portion of our menus just outlines the main course. I’ll fill in the fruits, veggies, extras each day depending on what we have available. My goal for this year is no lunch repeats… we’ll see how this turns out! In the meantime, this week, we’re looking forward to the following: Monday…

    Weekly Meal Plan – June Week 2

      Oh, look at me getting all off schedule again. Can I mention here how we’ve been out of town? That one baby is now crawling and all bets are off? That school ended and adjusting to having all the kids in one house together is lots of fun? How we spent several days eating someone else’s delicious cooking and how it took us a bit to get back into the rhythm of being home? (Note to self: Plan better for being out of town so we are well-stocked when we return. Oh, oh! And best gift ever – a homemade meal to send home with your weekend guests to reheat once…

    Weekly Meal Plan – May Week 4

    There may be hope for me yet! Two weeks in a row with planned meals – it’s almost like I’m in a dream. Though, speaking of which, the girls have been going through a huge growth spurt, getting their first teeth AND figuring out how to crawl which has meant that I only wish this could be a dream. We’ve been running on very, very little sleep for about a month now and honestly, we’re a bit exhausted. Even E has been up multiple times a night which means, quite literally, no rest for the weary. Anyway. Food. Back to that. It always makes me feel good to have a plan…

    Weekly Meal Plan!

    It’s been quite awhile since I was able to share our weekly meal plan here. Admittedly, we’ve been pretty busy – in the way that a family of six with twin babies moves, takes a 10-day drive halfway across the country, hosts a housewarming, a neighborhood party and still tries to find time to do normal things can be. Most of our weekly plans were adapted to whatever we had going on the week before or after. Following our neighborhood grill party, we only bought things to round out the meal plan and just used the leftovers that we had, for example. The return to being able to sit down…

    Weekly Meal Plan – January Week 4

    One of my favorite weekend rituals is waking up early to plan our meals for the week ahead. I know a lot of families struggle with eating healthful meals or find themselves at the end of a long day with nothing planned to feed the tired and hungry mouths looking at them in anticipation. While there are a lot of aspects of motherhood I can decidedly confirm are difficult for me, planning and executing weekly meal plans isn’t one of them. My hope is that sharing my meal plans (and recipe links, where appropriate) will inspire you to browse through Pinterest or your cookbook collection to find something to nourish your family…

    Wednesday – What I Ate

    I always find it interesting to see what other people eat in the course of any given day. Being pregnant this go-round, my appetite is certainly a lot different than it normally is though I’m not sure the things I like eating while pregnant have changed too much from when I was pregnant with either of the boys. I prefer uncooked foods (sandwiches, for example) and I find myself eating a ton of fresh fruit nearly constantly. (In fact, the latter fact has made it very difficult to keep fruit in the house because we all snack on it throughout the day. For breakfast alone, we can go through 4-6 pieces of…
