Menu Plan Monday ~ May 3rd + giveaway!
Updated to add: The winner of the menu planner is Shannon from Light at Home!
Hi everyone, happy new month to you! My recipe highlight from last week goes to the Cheesy Ham and Pasta Bake. Oh my goodness this recipe was so good and my kids gobbled it up which always makes me happy. Since my hubbie isn’t home, I just halved the recipe and it turned out great.
I’m excited to tell you that today is giveaway day around here. Not too long ago I was introduced to a terrific menu planning product created by two lovely sister in-laws. It’s called Pocket Full of Posies, Perfect Pocket Meal Planning and it’s a system designed to make menu planning super easy for busy households. It consists of a monthly magnetic pocket system for your fridge with a pocket to hold a set of weekly recipe cards and shopping list for each week. The monthly pockets are made with fun scrapbook paper designs that have been laminated for durability. There are five easy to make recipes provided per week so all the guess work is done for you.
It’s nice because this system doesn’t require you to designate a certain day for a specific recipe and is especially great for those who want to save time by having someone else select your weekly recipes for you. There is great flexibility in this system and Emily and Cammie do a fantastic job of explaining how it all works in a video which you can find here.
Today these girls are giving away to one lucky menu planner their Monthly Pocket Package One which includes the following:
1 Magnetic Monthly Pocket
Recipe Packages 1 & 2 (40 recipes total)
8 ingredient lists
All you have to do to enter is just link up to your weekly menu as normal in the Mr. Linky list below, before Wednesday, May 5th at 12:00 pm PST, and I’ll select a winner randomly from the list of participants. Good luck everyone!
Note: This particular giveaway is only open to those with blogs who blog their weekly menu plan and link up. It’s my small way of thanking those who participate in Menu Plan Monday.
Okay so here’s what we’ll be eating this week:
Monday: Spaghetti with Savory Spaghetti Sauce
Tuesday: Sweet Asian Chicken Salad Sandwiches
Wednesday: Mushroom Burgers
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Friday: “Batter Be Good To Me’ Pancakes
Saturday: Cheese-Stuffed Meatloaf (family favorite!) served with mashed potatoes and veggies
