I love having a way to connect with y’all!<—
This week has brought so many smiles to my face because of… YOU! I have received quite a few messages (and pictures) this week of y’all making the meals from this past week! And several of you have baked bread for the FIRST TIME EVER! You have no idea how happy this makes me! And you all have been so gracious as I worked through a few technical kinks with the Meal Plan/Grocery List downloads. I think we should be good to go from here on out! And if not, never hesitate to email me asking for help :).
I’ve teamed up with my friend Brenna from Paisley Barn Design on this project! She is super gifted when it comes to graphic design and has made beautiful FREE printables for us! She has created these gorgeous meal plans to hang on your fridge as well as an organized shopping list. Paisley Barn Designs also has helpful downloads that will help to keep your life organized (if you’re a homeschooler she has amazing downloads)! Use the code: VANILLATULIP for 15% off any order.
The weather has finally cooled down a bit here in Texas which means that it’s officially soup and stew season! Here is what is on the menu for the week (for the recipes just click on the name of the meal):
1. Grandma Smith’s Beef Stew: I grew up with my mom making this delicious stew for our family. As the title suggests, it’s a recipe from my Grandma Smith (hi Grandma!). I love to make a loaf of homemade French Bread to go with it! This is also a great dish that re-heats wonderfully! So, if you know that you’re going to need a quick dinner one night, make this a day or two before. Then re-heat!
2. Homemade Chicken and Rivel Soup: this is another recipe that my mom made growing up. A “river” is actually like a tiny dumpling. So technically this soup could be called Chicken and Dumpling Soup :). You can make this super quickly!
3. Sweet and Savory Meatballs with Mashed Potatoes: my whole crew INHALES meatballs (or meatloaf)! And this recipe is one that everyone in our house asks for frequently. I have linked to my Meatloaf recipe. BUT, instead of forming your ground beef into a loaf, you’ll just form balls. Bake at 350 degrees until they’re done. You can also use frozen meatballs if you’re in a real pinch for time! And the same goes for the mashed potatoes. You can do homemade OR a pack of instant potatoes if you’re on a time crunch. I love to serve this with roasted broccoli!
4. Pulled Pork Sandwiches with French Fries: this recipe makes quite a bit and can easily be frozen for another meal! I love to serve these sandwiches with frozen French fries and fruit for a quick meal!
