Literally, it’s been like 3 full weeks since I’ve meal planned and shopped for real groceries.  Of course, I’ve had to do a few milk/fruit/other essentials runs, but for the most part, we’ve just been making due --eating out of the pantry, and getting creative.  But…our creativity has come to an end and the pantry is nearly bare, which means that I was finally FORCED to meal plan today.  So, here it is -- your Wednesday edition of MPM.  Rather than assigning meals to a specific day, I kind of just made a list of main dishes to shop for and we’ll play it by ear as far as what we eat when.  Here’s what I’ve got:

1. Marinated grilled chicken breasts with grilled veggies.

2. Foil packet dinners.

3. One pot pasta – our new family favorite!

4. Spicy Sausage Pasta. 

5. BLT Wraps.

And while we’re on the subject of food, here’s what we’re taking to our 4th of July festivities at my parent’s, J’s grandma’s, and with our neighbors:

1. Skinny Poolside Dip

2. Carmel Puff Corn.  Mmmmmmm.

3. Funfetti fruit dip with fruit.

4. Churro Chex Mix

Sooooo, who’s hungry now?!?

Alright, that’s enough food talk (as if there could EVER be enough food talk!).  Just for fun, here are a couple pics from my girls weekend/bachelorette party for a friend.  It was MUCH needed and the timing couldn’t have been any more perfect.  We were missing our 5th wheel (Hi, Ang!), but her mommy duties called.  Been there, done that!  Which makes me especially grateful for a non-nursing baby (those who know me, know this is a HUGE step for me!) and a husband able/willing to hold things down on the home front while I laid by the lake, caught up with friends, slept solo in a king sized bed, and peed in peace all weekend.
