Let’s Eat: Menu Plan Monday

Menu Plan Monday: Lasagna and Turkey Reubens

Menu Plan Monday: Keep It Simple

Fail. That’s how I feel about last week’s menu plan. The good thing about not sticking with a menu plan is that you can simply push those meals to the next week. I suppose not making more than half the things I wanted to last week ...
