Menu Plan: Spring (June 8-14)

**There is now a photo album on the RH Facebook page just for food photos. If you like to see a photo of a dish to judge whether you want to try it or not, then follow the link to view the album. (I tend to like recipes & cookbooks that include lots of photos). Let's be honest, some dishes are just too pretty to not take a picture! ;) **

  • We had several meals from last week that we didn't quite get to, so they became a good start for this week. It's helpful to plan meals that use more shelf ingredients towards the end of the week just in case they are needed to roll over to the next week. 
  • Lunch on Sundays tend to be rather rushed and late once we return from church. We've decided to reserve this meal occasion for slow cooker meals. (If you have any favorites, then please share! I've not made too many slow cooker meals!)
  • I'm enjoying more leftovers for lunches nowadays. Some days I have a bit of extra time to cook a full meal for lunch. Other times, though, I'm more pressed for time and we end up doing breakfast for lunch at the last minute. (Plus, leftover lunches is also a great way to reduce expenses because I don't have to purchase as many meal ingredients).


*Note: I include links to the recipes if they are available online. Some recipes are from cookbooks we have at home, and while I can't share the recipe I can direct you to the source. Other dishes or meals are created by myself or my husband, and we can do our best to explain how to recreate it. If you'd like additional information on any of the meals or our menu planning, then please feel free to contact me. :)
