Each Weekly Menu Plan is a collection of delicious dinner recipes, side dishes and a few desserts that will hopefully offer a little dinner inspiration and help make your week a little smoother one recipe at a time.
This is a week I am glad to see come to an end. It’s been a rough one that’s for sure.
On Wednesday we said goodbye to our dog Buddy. He was 17-years old. He lived a good, long life. It’s crazy how attached you become to your pets and how much they become a part of your family. We’ve known for months it was time, but we kept putting it off because we just weren’t ready to say goodbye.
We got our new dog Hank a few months ago hoping it would make it easier to say goodbye to Buddy. It didn’t and Hank can sense Buddy is gone and has been moping around the house the past couple of days. The picture below was Hank after we came home without 💔.
Hank was always trying to get Buddy to run around and play with him, but Buddy was just too old and could hardly walk without falling. Hank learned pretty quickly that it was never going to happen, so sometimes he’d just cuddle up next to Buddy. We are going to miss Buddy like crazy. Hank definitely has some pretty big shoes (or little in Buddy’s case) to fill.
Do you love that Buddy is wearing a doggy sweater? He was always cold and shaking because it was shrinking down to just skin and bones.
Hopefully you’ve got some fun plans for this Memorial weekend. I think we could all use a fun-filled weekend. Be safe and I’ll be back next week some great new recipes.
(This is great with grilled chicken added in)
