Menu Plan Monday ~ April 4, 2011
Hello beautiful people! Thanks for all the well wishes last week, I’m feeling much better. I do apologize to anyone that has sent me an email in the last couple of weeks, I really am going to try to get to those soon!!
So the biggest recipe hit of the household last week turned out to be the Potato-Topped Mini Meatloaves. So much so in fact that my daughter has requested them again this week for her 14th birthday! Sweet for me because this was one easy recipe to cook up, yay!!
A couple of weeks ago I posted a picture of the chalkboard menu board I use and a couple of you asked about where I got it. I got it on clearance at a little gift shop here in Alberta and there isn’t a brand or anything on it. It was just one of those things I saw buried in a 50% off bin tucked away in the corner and I had to snag it. Since the boxes are a little narrow, I do find it a little hard to write my meals on it sometimes though. I kind of have to write sideways to make it fit. Other than that, it’s been working great :)
I know many of you are interested in the magnetic type of menu boards though and I just recently found someone who does make and sell cute ones like these:
See all her designs and purchase here. If you want, you can make your own using the excellent tutorial Kim provides here. Just so you know I’m not affiliated in anyway, in fact she doesn’t even know I’m mentioning this.
Also if you are looking for recipe inspiration, don’t forget to check out the Recipe Index Round-Up! Such an amazing collection of recipe indexes PLUS if you haven’t had a chance to add yours to it, you still can. I’ve left the collection open so it can continue to grow!

Monday: Meat & Potato Pie
Tuesday: Beth’s Baked Chicken served with perogies and broccoli
Wednesday: Tortellini and Ham
