You're probably wondering how these two things can even go together in a post. lol Let me share.......I've been wanting to do this weekly posting of meal plans for quite awhile and I've been just HORRIBLE about planning our weekly meals. This is another one of those things that are so good for you, and you know that's it's good for you, and you know how much easier it makes your life, but you still just don't stick with it! Arugh! I mean, my life is so, so, so much easier when I plan our meals for the week. No stress every day about what to make for dinner that night. No blowing our grocery budget by quick trips to the store every day for less-than-adequate meals (a.k.a. prepackaged meals full of who knows what that are full of salt & preservatives and just not good for ya and cost a bundle!). And worst yet, eating out. That really kills our grocery budget and our wasitelines! So, this kind of ties into my whole get-it-in gear mantra I've been telling myself since January and now that the Easter Season is almost upon us, for me, it ties in Lent. I say this because it is custom for Catholics to "give something up" during Lent. Usually people give up coffee, soda, t.v., etc. You can also give up bad habits, like gossiping or being judgemental. So I'm going to give up my being unorganized and unhealthy and give it up to the Lord and put these parts of my life that are in such desperate need of help and guidance in His hands.
That said. lol Here's my menu for this week. In a different post I will share how I have my recipes and such organized to make planning my weekly menu easy as pie!
I'm a Catholic mom to a family of 4 sharing the odds and ends about our day-to-day life; what we're creating, what we're doing, where we're going, what we're reading and what's on our dinner table. And, how we're keeping things simple in the big city.
O Mother of Perpetual Help, grant that I may ever invoke Thy most powerful name, which is the safeguard of the living and the salvation of the dying.
