Menu Plan Monday ~ March 28/16

Menu Plan Monday for the week of March 28/16 - recipe links and menu planning inspiration

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a beautiful Easter weekend! It was nice and relaxing for us here with more than a couple of naps thrown in especially after yesterday’s sunrise church service.Β  It was absolutely gorgeous and emotionally moving.

And yes that is still a whole lot of snow on the ground. Sigh.

Last week I loved on the Coconut & Avocado Grasshopper Bars that my friend made for me. So for Easter I tried making them myself and they turned out, whoot, whoot!Β  Every once and awhile I get a baking success πŸ™‚Β  Even my very picky 16 year old liked them.Β  You don’t taste the avocado at all.

This week my kiddos are on Spring Break so I’m looking forward to that. I love having my kids home and just hanging out with them. So even though this year we aren’t going anywhere I’m sure we’ll still find some fun to be had. Maybe I’ll get them helping me with a few organizing projects, that’ll be fun! Ha for one of us anyway πŸ™‚

My Weekly Menu Plan:

Monday:Β  Leftover Easter dinner – ham, mashed potatoes and carrots

Tuesday:Β  Cilantro-Lime Honey Garlic Salmon (baked in foil) served with spinach salad

Wednesday:Β  Hot Oven Roasted Chicken Thighs served with rice and broccoli

Thursday: Leftover buffet

Friday: Pizza Party Friday Night! and for me Flatbread Pizza Crust

Saturday:Β  One-Skillet Roasted Steak and Potatoes served with grilled veggies

Sunday: YOYO (you’re on your own!)

Have a wonderful week everyone!!

      Yes they do have mint in them but it’s the avocado making them green πŸ™‚

    I just pinned those avocado bars! May have to try them out. Always looking for new Easter brunch recipes. I wonder how well they would keep? My kids are on spring break this week as well. Hope you have a wonderful time organizing.
