Weekly Meal Plan Week 3: 6 dinner recipes and 2 desserts from 8 top bloggers!

 

Another week down, another weekly meal plan for you!!  I hope you are loving these as much as I do.  I am getting so many great meal ideas each week, just from putting this together to share with you.  I can not wait to make the chicken with asparagus and the Cuban pork.  My family will love both of them, and they look incredible.

So do you have plans this weekend?  Hopefully they involve something fun in this great weather.  We should be headed up to the mountains early Saturday morning for a great hike.  Now that the snow has melted off the trails, we will be heading up there as much as we can.  If I had my way, it would be every weekend.  But it isn’t only up to me.  After working out of the house all week, sometimes my husband wants to relax on the weekend.  I on the other hand work all week, but it is from home.  So when the weekend comes I want to get out of the house!  It is a never ending battle.

My son is loving tennis lessons so far.  He has only had 2 lessons, but he says he is getting better and really liking it.  The only problem that is for 10 and under they play with different lines and a different ball.  When we play with him we use the normal tennis ball.  So I am just hoping that what he learns and practices there can translate to the real court and real ball when he plays outside of lessons.  We will see this weekend I guess, because I am sure he will want to go out and play to show us what he has learned!

What a busy weekend!  It was our first weekend in forever that we didn’t have plans.  But it turned into a busy and exhausting weekend! We wen up to Rocky Mountain National Park and went on a beautiful hike.  It was almost 9 miles long. Then we met up with friends who were camping in the park.  We haven’t seen them in almost a year, so it was good to catch up.  At least we got to hang out at home on Sunday for most of the day (my son talked us into playing tennis).  So after a long hike on Saturday and hiking with my son on Thursday (pictures on Instagram) I was kind of tired!

Weekly Meal Plan brought to you by 8 top bloggers

Weekly Meal Plan - 8 top bloggers are making your week easy!!  6 main dishes and 2 dessert recipes take the guess work out of planning!

So are you a fan of the new Weekly Meal Plan feature?  I have heard some good things from readers, so I hope you enjoy it.  The whole goal is to make life easier on you with quick and easy dinner recipes for your whole week.  Make it a habit each Saturday morning to sit down and come up with a meal plan for your week.  Your whole family will then know what is happening each night, and there will be less complaints and questions!

Do you have any fun plans this weekend?  I think this might be our first weekend in almost 6 weeks that we are all home and have nothing planned.  It think it is going to be wonderful to just sit and relax as a family.  I am sure we will end up doing something, but it will be what we want and when we want.  It is going to be amazing!  My son starts tennis lessons on Monday, and is super excited.  So I can guarantee that he is going to be asking to play this weekend.  I think he wants to be the star of his class :)

Have a great weekend!

Yesterday we got to attend a summer party with my husband’s company.  In the past it has been at their site, but they have brought in all sorts of fun games, vendors and events.  This year (well actually last year, but we weren’t around for it) they switched things up.  We went to a beach at Horsetooth reservoir and spent playing in the water.  They had wave runners, stand up paddle boards, pontoons, and boats for water skiing.  It was a lot of fun and the weather was perfect.  I hope they continue this, because it is different and a great way to get away from work and get to know your co-workers and their families better.

Today I am sitting in the middle of a park watching my son and his friend play tennis.  My son has been obsessed with tennis this summer, and is always asking if I will take him to the courts near our house.  Last night he had a friend spend the night, so this morning I brought them over here to play.  It is somewhat comical to watch, because neither of them are any good, but they are trying to play a real game.  We finally signed my son up for lessons that start next week, so we will have to see how that goes.  Next up, I am going to need lessons, so I can actually play with him.

Have you ever been to Raising Cane’s? It is a chain fast food restaurant that only serves chicken fingers. We have one in Fort Collins, and were a little skeptical at first, but it has quickly become one of our favorite places.

It is not your traditional fast food chain, that is for sure! They make everything fresh to order, and use real, quality, good pieces of chicken. They are famous for their Cane sauce. It is the only dipping sauce that they offer, and it is just that good, they don’t need to offer anything else.

I had the privilege of getting together for breakfast with a few local Fort Collins bloggers yesterday.  It is always so much fun to get together with someone who completely understands your job and can relate to your crazy stories. I am not sure why we don’t do it more often, we all live in the same town!  Life just gets in the way I guess.  But I always come away excited and with lots of new ideas.  And yesterday was no different.  Stay tuned tomorrow for a new feature coming to the blog!  You are going to love it!
