Hello! How did your menu plans work out for you last week? Mine, not so great. Two of the recipes I picked for my menu plan last week were awful. The coconut crusted chicken and the ribs with homemade BBQ sauce both turned out terribly. I couldn’t even eat the ribs, the smell just made me gag. My husband still ate them (he is a sport!) but I just couldn’t do it. So that was disappointing but it happens. It won’t stop me from trying new recipes though because for every awful one there is a winner so it all works out in the end.
I did make beef bone broth over the weekend and that turned out really well. I used a slow cooker recipe from The Paleo Approach Cookbook. It tastes amazing and the health benefits of bone broth are many. My full mason jars make me so happy!!
Menu Planning Resources:
I’ve picked a few resources for you this week to help you find some quick and easy meals for your menu plan this week. The best way to avoid takeout (and save $$ and pounds!) is to have a plan in place but the plan only works if the meals can be prepared in the time frame you have available. These recipes might help.
Finally if you are looking to get your spices organized this week, these free printable spice labels might help pull it all together.
Have a wonderfully organized week everyone!!
