Why hello there! I took a couple of weeks off from menu plans due to vacation (yay!) and, uh, laziness. But I missed having a menu plan last week. Because when you’re feeling lazy? That’s when you could really use the plan! (I’m shouting at myself.) It just makes meal times easy, breezy, beautiful Cover Girl!
So back to it! I have a lot of summer fruit and garden fresh zucchini & bell peppers I need to find ways to use up. A pleasant pickle. Here’s what we’re having this week.
- Blueberry pancakes, raspberries & blueberries
- Egg scramble, raspberries, whole wheat toast strips, o.j.
- Greek yogurt with peaches, blueberries, freshly ground flaxseed, & more (my mom made this for me during my visit–not for everyone, but super healthy and I love it!)

- Breakfast burritos, raspberries, o.j.
