A weekly family meal from your favorite bloggers featuring 5 main dishes, a breakfast, side dish, appetizer and 2 desserts. Leave the thinking to us and the eating to you!
I have been traveling so much that I missed last week’s meal plan. Right after Austin, we took a surprise trip to Vegas for 2 days. 48 hours in the city of sin and I came home a few dollars lighter and with a tan.
Then I went to New Orleans with my girl Jocelyn to take some photographs of her, her mom and her aunt while they traversed the streets. SO many pretty colors in NOLA – I want to go back for a bit longer.
Next week I go to Berlin and hopefully I get a few weeks off. My body is tired (and my mind is tired of airplanes!) In the meantime, I have a new meal plan for you and your family, just in time for going back to school.
