Hello Fresh: More than Food. Chef-curated recipes based on seasonal farm fresh ingredients, delivered to your doorstep every week.

Summer has officially started! For us, that means we are even busier than we were in the Spring! With no school until September 5th, I’m tasked with trying to keep the kids busy and entertained. Most days (weather permitting of course) will see us out and about during the day, so I will be looking for quick and easy meals to feed my family.

Likewise, Christine will be helping run her hubby’s business and busy with her gardens and Tracker (fur-baby), so she will also be looking for delicious, easy to prepare meals to feed herself and her husband.  She wants her kitchen time to be limited so that she can be outside as much as possible! And who can blame her? Hello, summer!

I love love love soup and stew season. For me, there is nothing more comforting after a busy cool day than sitting down with my family and enjoying a hearty bowl of soup or stew. I like meals like this for several reasons.

On The Menu September 11-17

Autumn has finally arrived and I’m pretty excited about that! I love the cooler weather, I love the crispness in the air, and I love all the colours that happen when the season changes to autumn. I also love the food! I love getting back to making stews, soups, chowders and other hearty foods that I don’t make over the summer.

This week will be a busy week. My oldest son turns 22, and my youngest 3 start school, so our meals will reflect that. This is also week 2 of the grocery period, so meals will be more pantry based (week 1 meals are more fresh produce based).

Weekly Dinner Meal Planning

Dinner Meal Planning for August 21-27

Weekly Dinner Meal Plan for August 21-27

This is the last full week of Summer Vacation (and I’m not at all upset about it either)! This week we’re having some fun meals like tacos, cheese burgers,  stuffed chicken and steak. I try to do budget meals as much as possible (I define any meal I can prepare including side dishes for under $15 a budget meal). This week we are having two “splurge” meals (steak and stuffed chicken), and we normally have Breakfast for Dinner at least twice a month (including this week). For our steak meal, I bought a box of Black Angus steak at Walmart for $19.47. We can get two meals out of each box, so its not really a true splurge.
