Menu Plan Monday ~ August 14/17 Weekly Dinner Inspiration

Hi friends, hope you are all happy and well and ready to menu plan! How many of you have kids going back to school already? My kids don’t go back until September so we still have a little bit of time yet but the weather lately has been feeling like fall already, brrr. Hopefully we still have some warm weather ahead of us.

If you do have kids back to school already be sure to check out these great back to school tips that Yuni recently shared.

Menu Plan Monday ~ August 14/17 Weekly Dinner Inspiration to help you get dinner on the table with less stress

Recipe Highlight:

Yesterday I was craving some chocolate (as one does) and found this yummy recipe for Paleo Chocolate Brownie Skillet Cake from one of the awesome Paleo blogs I follow.Β  It was super quick to whip up so in no time I was feeling so much better πŸ™‚ Anyone relate? This recipe isn’t very sweet so if you’d prefer it a little sweeter while still keeping it healthy, add some thawed unsweetened frozen berries for extra deliciousness.

Speaking of Paleo I wanted to share about this great Paleo magazine I bought at our local drug store (I’ve also seen it at Walmart). This latest issue has so many fantastic recipes that I can’t wait to try out. The only problem with it for me is that they feature so many great Paleo products that I can’t buy because they are only available in the US right now. So jealous! πŸ™‚ Doesn’t that tomato soup look so delicious?

Here’s what we’ll be eating this week.

Thursday: Leftover buffet

Friday: Pizza Party Friday Night with 5 minute homemade pizza dough and for me Coastal Cobb Salad

Saturday: Portobello Mushroom Bacon Burgers

    That Paelo Brownie skillet looks better than the non-Paelo boxed brownie mix I made yesterday & somehow managed to do wrong. My boys start back to school this week. I’d say I wished they didn’t start until September but I really do like that we finish up the school year in mid-May. Hope you have a nice week!
