Here comes another week! Can you believe it. My family and I have just returned (late last night) from a fun vacation (more on that coming up on the weekend report) where it was hot, sunny and gorgeous. It’s cold and snowy here in Utah and the warm sun was welcome blessing. As I type this there are 7 still-packed suitcases sitting at my feet loaded down with dirty laundry and a lot of fabulous memories. Feeling beyond blessed this morning to have had time away with my people. 🙂

I’m also feeling happy that I put this menu plan together before we left! It feels great to have a weeks worth of food already planned out. One less thing to worry about this week while my family and I trudge back into regular life, yes? Below you will find a super comforting crock pot soup (I feel like making it today, man it’s cold outside!), an easy 4-ingredient meatball recipe and one of my families favorites…Sweet Cafe Rio Pork with Cilantro Lime Rice and Cilantro Dressing.

I made some homemade Blueberry Jam from frozen berries (you can find a tutorial here) a couple of weeks ago and have been dying to make these bars ever since. They are fabulous when made with homemade jam. Yum!

Have a great week, everyone!

  1. It’s not on your weekly plan, but I just had to come on and tell you we tried your 30 minute lasagna (stovetop) last night for the first time – it was a hit, let me tell you…my daughter had already been whining about not liking lasagna, but she ate every bit of it, with a thumbs up. And my picky, picky son…ate most of it (I consider that a win). Yay! Just wanted to say thanks! 🙂 That is a definite keeper…(however next time I will make sure I have the mozzarella cheese BEFORE I get halfway through the recipe – yep, that made for a fun quick run to the grocery store…hahaha!)
