Meal Plan; 31 May – 4 June

Last weekend we attended our first “live” concert outside the comfort of our little house in the woods.

Bon Jovi hosted a virtual concert across 300 locations in the US. one of the 300 event sites was our local drive-in movie theater. The band performed from a venue in New Jersey, and thousands of people across the US (and strange relatives in Canada) attended virtually.

We brought the Big Red truck to the drive-in, parked with the truck bed pointing towards the screen. I had filled up the truck bed with big bean bag chairs, plenty of blankets, and a little cooler with refreshments.

It was a great evening with the kids. It’s not that we are huge Bon Jovi fans, and we didn’t recognize many of the songs, but it was a wonderful atmosphere. No masks in sight. We were finally free of the face diapers.

People cheering and singing along. Smiles clearly visible, something not witnessed in a year because of the fecking face masks, indicating they were having loads of fun.

Time to talk about food

Only four days of school and work this week, so one less meal to prep. Our family diet is progressing and I’m exploring ways to substitute favorites like pasta and bread with some low-carb options. We are having a healthy mix of meat and vegetables throughout the week, and have a few days with seafood too.

Fire up the Traeger. Ready your Dutch oven. Go shopping, and let’s start cooking—another Sunday in the Kitchen with music on the magical Demerbox and wonderful aromas filling the room.

One day, I might get so organized that I will link the meals below to my recipes. We can only live in hope!

Have a fantastic week, my friends. I hope you enjoy these meal plans. It is so much easier to make food in advance, although you need to invest several hours during the weekend to prepare the meals.
