Can you believe this is the last week of the Meal of the Week email series 😢. I can’t! It’s been SO fun to find new recipes, test them on my family 😉, and then share them with you! I hope you have gotten as much joy out of it as I have…and hopefully you have even shared a few recipes with your friends as well!
When I first set out on this hobby / adventure to blog and connect with other mamas over what to make for dinner?? I never imagined that I would be in touch with almost 400 people every single week. I honestly thought it would just be my mom, aunts, and cousins (who ARE part of this group 😉) but also lots and lots of other people too.
Now that I have successfully come out on the other side of the first year of motherhood, I want to focus my time on helping other mamas to do the same. Even with over 10 years of experience as a pediatric nurse and caring for thousands of children, I still had a ton of questions as a new mama. (Give me a virtual high five if you have come out on the other side of that first year of motherhood craziness too!!🙌).
If you are still in the thick of it, know that you are not alone! Having a million questions and feeling like you have no clue what you are doing some days is completely normal!
If you aren’t a mama, just know that especially in that first year, we might look like our normal selves, but we feel like completely different people. Help a friend out!
………..I promise, she will thank you!
With that, here is our last Meal of the Week!! If you are looking for more ideas for dinner, you can always find more of my favorite, easy, family friendly recipes here.
