The Meal Plan and Grocery List 5/23- 5/29 PLUS Some Ideas For Your Weekend Cookout

It's been awhile since I posted a meal plan. Travel, yard work, and all of our spring activities have kept our little family hopping! We've been living off the reserves in our freezer in between my irregular shopping trips. For instance, tonight I pulled a Chicken Divan casserole out of the freezer for a no-fuss dinner. There's definitely some yummy food on the menu for this week and then for the long holiday weekend I am planning for some of our cookout favorites. Check out these past posts for ideas for your weekend festivities:
