{Meal Plan} Pinning and Planning Our Dinner Menu – Week of October 3

 

Feeling uninspired and bored with meal planning, thanks to food allergy modifications paired with feeling overwhelmed preparing for a travel bloggers press trip, I decided to skip a week of meal planning. I basically, left Allan to his own devices for meal planning and I believe there may have been a lot of meals of brinner, pasta and mashed potatoes while I was away.

While he and the kids had mashed potatoes for dinner, I relished the most amazing meals in Daytona Beach.

I pretty much ate everything that I can’t eat at home like tomatoes, although I tried my very best not to overdo it. I ate some healthy meals and some not so healthy choices, but I managed to split most of the unhealthy ones. All the flavor and fun with less of the guilt!

Now when I tell you I ordered biscuits and gravy or a gorgeous rigatoni mozzarella dish, keep in mind I didn’t clean my plate but simply sampled and savored.

And boy did I enjoy every small portion bite!

Yep, I pretty much ate my way through Volusia County. Stay tuned for my full “Discover Daytona Beach” review. I had a fantastic time and can’t wait to share it all with you!

    Denise you are going to make me want to take a Drive to Daytona Beach. Your meals looked delish. I am sure the family is glad to have you back and in the kitchen but I am sure one week of freestyle dining wasn’t too bad.
