Meal Plan April 25, 2016


What’s up this week? We’re back in the studio again for a few days, working on book number two. We got off to an amazing start last week! It’s kind of killing us not to show you what we’re working. I’ve realized how addictive it is to share things as quickly as we can these days. But I think you’re going to love it. It means my own meal planning will be thrown off again as we take home so much food at the end of a shoot day, which is just one of the lovely bonuses.

But for you, my lovelies, there’s a meal plan. The weather is still up and down so we’ll start the week with a hearty soup you can make vegetarian if you’d like. I won’t always make Tuesday a Taco Tuesday but I thought I’d give my friend Lisa one more. Wednesday’s dinner is a light, lemon-y pasta and it’s so easy it’s ridiculous. The Salmon Tray Bake on Thursday is a delicious, full dinner that only messes up one baking sheet. And Friday’s Tuscan Chicken Skillet dinner makes a cozy finish to the week.

Keep tweeting and Facebooking how you’re doing with the meal plans – we love hearing from you!
