July Meal Plan

july meal plan - 5 weeks of summer dinners for your family menu

One year ago, this week, I tilted the table and created the first Julieverse Meal Plan Calendar. Forget weekly, this was whole month of meals. I found that offering a month at a time offered readers more opportunity to plan (they didn't have to wait for Monday) and it offers everyone an opportunity to get more ideas to balance your week and month. So, here it is. The beginning of the 2nd annual monthly meal plan calendar! This plan was created to help you plan cooking 5 weeks of summer … [Read more...]

What’s for dinner? Here’s your meal plan for June

june meal plan family dinner recipes week month weekly

Last week, while shopping at Wegmans, I noticed that they now sell frozen salmon burgers, mahi-mahi burgers and several other types of pre-made fish burgers. The cost was less than $8 for four burgers, which is fairly reasonable compared to making it yourself, especially when you're on limited time and want your family to enjoy the healthy benefits of eating fish and seafood. Sadly, for a family of 5, the price is just under $16, which doesn't make it quite as great of a deal. I still may try … [Read more...]

MYO Salted Caramel Frappe, so easy!

make your own salted caramel frappe

I had a craving yesterday. I wanted something cool, refreshing, and sweet. And no matter how many tastes I crunched and chewed, nothing was suiting the craving. Until about 4 pm when it dawned on me. I wanted a Salted Caramel Frappuccino. The problem only problems being that I'm not a barista, I don't have a Starbucks (or a Starbucks barista) in my house, and while our local Starbucks has a drive-thru window, it doesn't deliver. So, I did the next-best-thing to Starbucks Delivery: I … [Read more...]

May Meal Plan: Dinners for your family all month, already planned

may meal plan featuring a month of family friendly, healthy meals

There comes a time, in every Sports-Mom's life, when she looks at her calendar and sees "baseball-softball-baseball-baseball-baseball" stretching across the 6 o-clock hour for an entire week. For me, that week is now. (And I expect it will happen in again in future years.) So while we're snacking on to-go hoagies, pizzas and hot dogs from the ball park, families who aren't at baseball all week can enjoy this week's meal plan, which includes some of my favorites like Minty Bulgur Salad with … [Read more...]

May Meal Plan: Spring dinners for your family menus

may meal plan featuring a month of family friendly, healthy meals

I am starting my Monday so very hungry. And, because yesterday was Mother's Day (Happy Mother's Day everyone!) I didn't exactly follow my Menu Planning routine. In fact, I'm creating my grocery list as I type this and I have  feeling it's going to be a very long grocery store visit with lots and lots of extras in my cart. This week's meals look great. A healthy variety of meats and veggies, all taking advantage of the gorgeous weather we're having. Hope my neighbors are looking forward to … [Read more...]

This blog has a seasonal menu for the entire month of April. Lots of Spring dinners, plus Passover options. SO great for a family meal plan!

Here it is, the EOM (that's end of the month, for those who don't talk text-speak.) As we finish up the April Meal Plan and get ready for the magically warm days of May, I would be remiss if I didn't totally go off topic and not mention that my jewelry boutique, Jewelryverse.com, has an EOM Friends + Family coupon code!
