Prime Day and our Weekly Meal Plan

Sharing is caring!

Were you wondering where this week’s meal plan was? Well… it’s here; just a day late. We finally had a weekend away. We took a trip to northern Arizona; I found a little spot with cabins, hiking and lower temperatures.

I almost skipped the meal plan all together but I have another important reason for sharing. Today is Prime Day! If you are an Amazon Prime member you can get some amazing deals today. One of those deals is the Instant Pot! Don’t miss it! I heard from someone at Instant Pot headquarters that this is the best price ever!

I could easily use my Instant Pot every day.

    Thanks for all the great meal ideas! Just pinned them all to try later this week.

  2. This recipe looks awesome! I’m going to try it — except I can’t find a peanut-free liquid smoke in my store. Awaiting response from Wright’s (24hrs+). About the Instant Pot, I had the 6 q on order but cancelled it — being uncertain that it would be big enough for a family of 5 (3 teen boys)? What do you think? Unfortunately, that great deal is gone now! 🙁

    • Hi Karen,
      I think the 6 qt will work for you! You may not have a lot of leftovers but I doubt you do anyway. 🙂
      I share every time I see the deep discounts but even at regular price it is worth it. I’m so glad I bought it when I did (almost 2 years ago). Black Friday sales get as low as $75 some times.
      One thing to consider is unless you are making one pot meals 6 qts is a lot of food. It doesn’t go as far with soups but with rice, beans, potatoes, lentils, etc. it’s a lot.

What do YOU think?
