Meal Plan Monday

Hello everyone! I hope you had a great last week!

The kids and I are camping for part of this week, so our meal plan is a little different. I'm curious to know what your favourite camping meals are? I'm always looking for new ideas, would love if you shared!

We are fortunate that we have an RV, so our camping meals are a lot like our meals at home. We dry camp (no hook-ups), but having a kitchen available makes things easy for meal planning. Where we live it is not uncommon for there to be fire bans during camping season which limits our campfire cooking, however this year, we have (yet) not had a fire ban put in place.

You'll notice that these are relatively simple meals with a lot of repeats...easier trailer packing and it's corn season so we are eating corn on the cob like it's going out of style :)

Here's my plan for this week:

Sunday - Steak, corn on the cob, caesar salad

Monday - Ribs, corn  on the cob, caesar salad

Tuesday - Souvlaki, grilled pita, corn on the cob

Wednesday - Hamburgers, corn on the cob

Thursday - Probably pizza as we'll be getting home from camping, flipping the trailer for our next trip, and getting the house ready for company :)

I haven't made any plans beyond Thursday as we have company arriving Thursday for a family wedding this coming weekend.

Have a great week!

Meal Plan Monday

Meal Plan Monday | Addicted to RecipesIt's been a long while! I've still been reading, collecting and trying new recipes, I just haven't been updating the blog. I've missed it, but, well, life got hectic and something had to give, for a while. My at-home meal planning also fell off the wagon a bit over the last while (I'm a bit of an expert when it comes to meal planning for our camping trips...we recently got back from 10 days away and the only thing we ran out of was eggs, which I knew we would but also knew that there was a grocery store near to our campground), but at home, especially in the summer, I tend to slack off. With back-to-school, back-to-work and hockey season right around the corner, it's time to get into the routine again. I'm back to work for a week, so I figured no time like the present to start the plan. Be patient, I do still have a few weeks of holidays booked before we go back full-time, but this is a start! Here's our meal-plan for the upcoming week:

Monday - Taco Casserole (recipe coming soon...if it's a success!)

Tuesday - Leftovers

Wednesday - Grilled chicken, Caesar salad

Thursday - Butter chicken, jasmine rice & naan

Friday - Social gathering with friends...not sure what's on the menu yet!

Happy planning for the week!
