No matter how much I like cooking and planning our dinners, there are times where I just run out of fresh ideas. I get sick of the same old thing, but weeknights don’t leave me with a ton of time to cook either. I love to try new recipes, and this week we’ll be doing just that! 

This week’s meal plan is all about quick weeknights meals while enjoying our free time on the weekend with some serious grilling. This is the first time we’ll be trying beef brisket in the smoker, and I’m definitely excited to give it a shot. We have some decent weather on the way this weekend so I’m ready to just throw some meat on the grill and have a salad on the side.

Read on for our weekly meal plan!
