Menu Plan Monday ~ April 29/13
Hey friends! Happy Monday to you all. So fun that we meet here again :) Our snow has now melted so I’m FINALLY pulling out our pretty spring banner above. Yay!
The Love of an Empty Fridge:
One thing that I love to do is get to an empty fridge every Sunday. It just makes me so happy! I know that might sound odd but there is something so refreshing about knowing that I stuck to my weekly menu plan and used up all the ingredients I bought for the week without waste. Since I get my groceries every week on Monday morning at 8:50 am (right after I drop my youngest at school) I love being able to restock an empty fridge and start my week off on fresh foot. What a feeling! Anyway imagine my surprise when I read a post last week by Rachel at The Minimalist Mom called Why I Love an Empty Fridge. Rachel feels exactly the same way I do! I love that. I also love that she is giving away $1 to Feeding America for every comment that she gets on that post up to $500.00. So if you’ve got a moment would you go over and leave a comment. Thanks!
Menu Planning Resources:
Your resource for this week are these great free printables I found for freezer cooking. There is a free freezer cooking planner, day planner and recipe card. Enjoy!
In addition you might find this post on Meal Prepping 101 helpful from The Daily Dish.
Also be sure to come back later today because I will have a FANTASTIC 97 ebook bundle available for a super crazy great price with many menu planning resources included. You don’t want to miss it!! I’ll be posting about it very soon.
Have a great week everyone!
