Back by popular demand… MEAL PLAN MONDAY! I know it’s barely Monday still, but I’m just getting back in the routine. Thanks for your patience! There actually wasn’t a “demand” per se, but I decided to check out my blog stats this weekend. Apparently my most viewed post are all meal plan posts! Who knew?! Meal planning comes natural to me, so I never realize it’s valuable and helpful to other people. I enjoy it! I do it whether I post it or not, so if it’s what the people want, I’m going to give it to them! And whether I post or not, I still collect a ridiculous amount of meal planning resources and notepads… I have a problem.
At least they were all only $1! They motivate and inspire my meal planning even more. Since I took the accidental extended break from blogging, I need things that motivate me. So I’m adding them left and right! And taking pictures too, of course, which also motivates me.
Remember the cute little red grill I used to have and the grilled recipe posts I used to make? The bottom fell out of my grill early last summer and I never replaced it. I wanted another red one! I never found one, so I finally gave in. Motivation #3… Grilling! Wanting to grill equals wanting to cook more equals taking pictures of food equals wanting to blog them. Done!

Along with my other nifty notepads, I also got these $1 food labels! How cute are they! Ignore the chocolate butter cream mess that got on this one from the cupcakes I made yesterday for the Father’s Day memorial meal.
German Chocolate Cupcakes! My dad’s favorite dessert was German Chocolate Cake. I never made it from scratch before yesterday, just box mix and pre-made icing. I wish I could have made this delightful, way easier than I thought, homemade dessert for him before he wasn’t with us anymore, but I’m glad I got to make it in memory of him!
