What's for Dinner: August 15 - August 21

Honey Garlic Shrimp, Corn, and Avocado Bacon Salad | Photo by Taste As You Go inspired by Half Baked Harvest

Those of you who follow me on Instagram may recognize this photo. I posted it to my feed earlier today to show some love to one of our new favorite salads ever.

I found myself falling into a cooking rut and it helped to focus on a theme last week. 

I'm still not 100% into the idea of cooking this week, but I have some good reasons to give myself a bit of a break. On Wednesday, my husband and I are celebrating our ninth wedding anniversary (recap here)... so no cooking for me that night! 

Then on Friday, we have a special Summer Bucket List surprise planned for the kids. So, obviously, I'm taking the night off from cooking then, too.

And with the start of a new school year right around the corner... I have a feeling I'm going to be changing the way I approach menu planning and meal prep. I know I talk about menu planning all the time on the blog... But is meal prep something you want me to start writing about? Let me know in the comments!

In the meantime, keep reading if you're curious to see what's on deck for dinner at our house this week!
