Welcome! For those of you who are new to Meal Planning, go to my “Meal Planning” tab here to help you out while you are getting started - lots of great resources.
In last weeks meal plan I made pork carnitas, so I still have a TON of pork to use. I will include it into a few meals this week, and freeze the rest with the juices for later. I also have lots of eggs from the Aldi deal and hashbrowns from Super Doubles a few weeks ago, so a yummy hashbrown quiche is in order, we love those!!
This is a crazy busy week for us, so I am going to try to keep it simple and easy, with minimal cleanup. Also, I am keeping the grocery trips light, we really only need fresh produce and milk, but I’ll probably pick up a few easy and good deals while I am there.
What about you, what is on your meal plan this week??
