Menu Plan: August 13 - August 19

Looking for dinner inspiration? Here's what I've planned for dinner at our house this week!

Wow, you guys. What a weekend. The baby hasn't been sleeping well at night, and we've been operating in a zombie-like state. I've had to dig deep to survive the past couple of days. There have been tears all around and moments when I felt like a horrible mom... especially when I yelled when I should have walked away or counted to ten.

Despite the rough nights and feeling like a failure, we managed to fill the days with some fun... like a celebrity encounter, a visit with family, and a Harry Potter-themed party. Once again, I'm reminded that parenthood -- and life -- is all about balance. Right when you think you're going to lose your mind, something happens to help you have faith again.

In the spirit of picking my head up and forging ahead, I've pushed myself to share this week's menu plan with you. Here's what's on deck for dinner at our house this week.


Spaghetti and Basic Baked Meatballs with Marinara Sauce






Stephen's Choice


Anniversary Dinner Out


Grilled Chicken with Wild Rice and Roasted Baby Carrots
