Meal Plan #5

It’s been a minute y’all. My bad.

We have been eating freezer meals, take out, and begging our parents to cook for us….

Between birthdays, toddler tantrums, holidays, and nursing babies, this mama just hasn’t found the time to sit down and make a meal plan. Or go to the bathroom alone. Or wash my hair. (Side note: Has everyone seen my new red hair?! Obsessed.) BUT feeling a little back on track, so here we go.

These meals are all super simple, and most use the Instant Pot. Obviously.

Who all got a new IP on prime day?! The deal was sooooo good. I almost got a second one. Daddy Darnell seemed to think baby monitors were more important. I mean I guess I need to see the baby while she sleeps.

Enjoy friends.

More posts coming soon. I have several lined up, I just need to find a moment to sit down and type them up. As I sit here and type this one Hixon is literally wiping his nose on his shirt, the baby is crying and Daddy Darnell just laid down for a nap. #momlife #reallife #don’tworryIwillwakehimup

Meal plan 3

Friends! I almost forgot to post this week’s meal plan!

Blame it on the toddler.

Let’s just be real for a minute. The past few days in toddler land have been tough. All the crying. All the whining. All the new baby jealousy. All. The. Emotions.

At one point yesterday I sat in the closet and cried while Hixon cried outside the door. Ugh. Horrible. The worst.

As I sat down to get this meal plan together I wasn’t feelin it. I was so worn down. I had no desire to even cook a grilled cheese at the time.

However, I know that part of the stress of the week is from being unprepared. I knew that having a meal plan would only make next week better. Regardless of how hard the days are, we still have to eat dinner every night. And eating out every night makes us feel like shit.

So here we are. Meal plan number 3. A little uninspired, but a meal plan none the less.

We did it mamas. We made it through another week! Here’s to the weekend, Father’s day celebrations, and family time.

Enjoy 🙂
