This week again is sure to be a warm one. So we’ll be having skillet dishes or grilling again this week.

Our garden continues to produce a good amount of lettuce so we’ll be having grilled brown sugar steaks over salad this week. I picked up a few steaks on sale a this week. So they are on the meal plan this week.

We’ll also be having salad as a side dish almost all week long. I prep ahead the salad so it easy to throw it together right before we sit down to eat.

We will also be grilling chicken this week. I’ll pull out a barbecue chicken freezer package and a teriyaki chicken freezer package this week to grill.

I love having them ready to go in the freezer so I only have to thaw them and add the chicken to the grill. Everything else is already done.

And to give you an update on how eating at home is going, I’m happy to say we are approaching our 21st month.

That’s right it’s almost been 21 months since the last time we ate out. That includes all restaurants and drive throughs. I’ve made all of our meals at home for about the last 21 months.

Now if someone would have told me I had to do it. I would have said no I can’t do that we like to eat out. But here we are. How long will this continue? I’m not sure but we will see. 

But I know one thing I couldn’t have done it without making a meal plan. That has made it so much easier. 

If you want to change how you eat, start  by making a meal plan and go from there.

  1. We currently have a bit of a break from the usual extremely hot summer temperatures here in Oklahoma but I’m sure it will be scorching again soon. Simple meals that don’t heat up the kitchen too much are always a good plan in the summer.

    Have a beautiful week!

  2. My daughter asked for steak on the grill this week, but I didn’t find a good deal at the store…hopefully next week they will have a good sale!

    I’m taking advantage of the cheap price of eggs and making a fritatta for dinner one night this week, along with some crock pot meals that I can set and forget 😉

    Hope you have a great week!
