Happy Monday everyone, I’m happy you are here. How was your weekend? We went away for the weekend and it was so nice to go on a wee road trip for a couple of days. We had so much fun visiting the zoo with the kids and I even got to hug a bear. Okay not a real bear but still pretty scary looking….lol.
It was spring break here in Alberta last week so I’m looking forward to getting back into routine this week and settling in to prepare some homemade meals after all the eating out we did.
First I’ve got a couple of great menu planning resources for you this week. Hope you find them helpful!
I absolutely love this sweet menu planning organizer. Visit the link for a complete tutorial!

Friday: Smart Pork-Pasta Toss
Saturday: Pesto BLTs (made with turkey bacon) and soup

WHAT’S ON YOUR MENU THIS WEEK?
Menu Plan Monday guidelines and banner selections are here.
Important announcement: Each week I get a number of people linking up that aren’t participating in MPM and are instead just looking for traffic to their sites. This wastes the time of all the people visiting links looking for menus. In order to try and get a handle on it (and to save me some work) I’m trying a new inlinkz feature this week. Basically once you put in your permalink (which is a direct link to your MPM post rather than your home page) then inlinkz will automatically search that post to ensure you’ve linked backed to orgjunkie.com (or my direct MPM post) somewhere in your post. You won’t notice any change unless of course you don’t link back or use a permalink and then you’ll get an error message. Thanks for your understanding!
