Farm-to-Table Menu | May 21

Our Weekly Meal Plan (Whole30, Paleo)


It's our last week of soccer, which has meant three days at the YMCA each week.  That also means too many quick meals, fast food, and eating out.  I love seeing our kiddos play soccer, but I'll be glad for the break over the summer! 


Monday - Southwest Chicken Salad

Tuesday - Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and PW's Homemade Tomato Soup

Wednesday - Couscous Salad w/ Quesadillas

Thursday - Roast Sammies (if I find a roast on sale)

Friday - Turkey Quinoa Meatloaf with Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Veggies

Saturday - Breakfast: High Protein Cottage Cheese Pancakes with fruit and bacon (making extra to freeze!)

Lunch: Sandwiches

Dinner: Leftovers

Sunday - Lunch: Leftovers

Dinner: Summer Corn Zucchini Chowder

Monday (Memorial Day!) - Burgers, Brats, etc.


Here's my grocery list for this week; I'm trying to keep it under $75.

Hello, Friday!

It's finally Friday, and today ends a busy week here at our house. I'm teaching during the May summer semester, and I love the small class sizes, but do not love the 3 hour long classes every day.  But, today, hubby and I are headed to look for bathtubs for our master bath.  I'll get to that in a minute.

1. "We live in the clearance section."

This is how my sister describes our family!  😂😂😂  She is not wrong.  I think it's fair to say that we were literally raised to spot a good deal.  And since I enjoy finding a great deal so much, I thought it would make sense to share those deals with friends, family, etc. so I started a deal group on Facebook called Orange Door Deals.  If you know me, you probably understand the name.

2. Bathtubs

We have a very large master bath that was built with a giant platform for the drop-in tub.  Which is huge.  The good news is that there are lots of tubs out there.  The bad news is that 1) my husband is 6'4" and 2) we have been spoiled by our huge bathtub.  Now, when we look at bathtubs, we think, "Can we fit all five kiddos in there?"  As you might imagine, that eliminates 99.9% of tubs (that we've seen so far).

We love the freestanding tubs, but they are all really narrow.  The drop-in tubs aren't as trendy, but would allow us to get a larger one.

Decisions, decisions.  Let me know in the comments if you have replaced your master tub...what did you decide?

3. Twins

The twins are crawling!!   I'm not sure how I feel about mobile twins, but they are SO proud of themselves.

Plus, they are both getting their first teeth in!

Why do babies grow so fast???




And that's all I have for today, folks.  Check in on Monday for our weekly menu.  And have a fantastic weekend!
