Weeknight Meal Plan || #3

I know what you’re thinking. You and I don’t normally do Saturdays together, but with last week’s Real Moms post interrupting our new regularly scheduled meal plans and yesterday’s post of our favorite Austin shops giving this week’s the boot, I just couldn’t imagine letting it go another week!
