{blog} menu plan // 04.13.13
Firstly, I must thank my awesome sister-in-love Marissa, for sharing her menu plans with me for the last month. She diligently plans each meal her sweet family will enjoy each week! She inspired me to start planning breakfast and lunch as well, and has shared many tips on how to get it all done and stay within budget! Thank you Marissa!

  1. This menu plan looks yummy! Thanks for links to all the good looking recipes you have discovered! I think the baked eggs look good, but I don't own ramekins and would probably eat 2 eggs, so I think maybe using a cast iron skillet would work? Not as cute though!
    I like the mustard chicken out of P.P. My husband likes it better if I broil the chicken at the end to crisp it more.
    The slow cooker chili in that same book is good. I cut the seasoning by half I think and thought I might cut it down even more another time. We also made the Nori rolls with canned salmon and veggies one day for lunch and enjoyed them. That is a great book!

  2. Oh, also wanted to comment that there is an awesome kale and black-eyed pea stew recipe in the book Superfood Kitchen (which I came across at my library). I could type it out for you if you are interested. Sara

  3. Thank you, Khrista, for another great week! I am stoked for the bacon-topped meatloaf. YUM! Have a great week.

  4. Thanks for posting this!!! I'm trying to get better with meal planning now that we're settling in post-move.

  5. This is so inspirational. I'm horrible at menu planning but want to be better at it!
