Menu Plan Monday

In an effort to be more organized and stick to using ingredients already in the house, I'll take a stab at posting a 3-meal-a-day meal plan like A. And my toddler and I are snowed out of town! We hope to return home today but don't know if we'll be able to get back into our neighborhood yet, let alone actually grocery shop for fresh produce.

I was excited to find a weekly tablet meal planning calendar at Michaels last week for only $1. I'm hoping that putting it on the fridge in addition to posting dinners on my clipboard spreadsheet will keep me in line.

Here goes:
