Menu Plan Monday ~ March 14/16

Menu Plan Monday for the week of March 14/16 - menu planning recipe ideas and inspiration!

Hi everyone!  I had two recipes this week not turn out for me….the macaroons were a crumbly mess and the blooming onions were a ridiculous disaster that I just had to go ahead and throw them out. Sigh!  Anyone else have cooking disasters this week?

I’ve got a Paleo Shepherd’s Pie on the menu this week as you’ll see.  A girlfriend made this dish for our church potluck a couple of weeks ago.  It was absolutely delicious and I’ve been thinking about it ever since so I’m going to try making it for supper this week.  It uses more ingredients than I normally like to use but hopefully it won’t take too long to prepare.

From the blog last week, a quick and easy way to get an organized fridge.

    Too bad your recipes didn’t turn out. Especially the onion, that sounds good to me!

    I actually had a great week in the kitchen. Well…a good week out of the kitchen? Three different times my boys cooked for me this past week. I just love working myself out of a job!

    Have a great week. 🙂

      Love it when the kids cook! I’m sure missing my daughter who used to do all the cooking for me. She’s at University now and apparently taking a break from all things cooking lol.

    I accidentally added the wrong post to the link. It is on the 40 day clutter challenge. In m defense I was using my iphone and everything was super tiny. Sorry about that.

      No worries Pamela! I just finally figured out how to make my text bigger on the iPhone in the settings because I have trouble seeing things too 🙂

    I am glad I stumbled upon your meal link up! It’s too be the recipes didn’t work out! I hate when that happens…feels like such a waste of time. I hope they will work for you so I can try them! I made up some roasted onions this past weekend and a blooming onion sounds great!
