Menu Plan Monday {4.10-17}

I didn’t post a menu plan last week during our time of traveling. I had prepared plenty of food for the road the week before, which we munched on while in the car (and picnic benches in parks!).

We enjoyed everything I packed, so I saved the meal plan/recipes in my Plan to Eat account; I can just “load” the saved plan into a new week on the calendar the next time we travel!

Once we arrived at our friends’ home (with Emily & family), we planned activities and meal ideas together, and had fun visiting different “new to us” grocery stores.

Now we’re back home, I’ve restocked my pantry, and the fridge is full of homemade yogurt and beef bone broth. We’re having a church ladies’ retreat in our home this next weekend, so I’ll just make an extra little batch of the meals for our family, when we prepare meals for the guests.

  • I use chick peas often in soups, salads and hummus. I didn’t realize that they could be purchased dried. I need to check with my bulk food store to see if they carry them. Thanks always for your menus. I do not always comment, but I read every day!. God bless you this week.

    @Ruth, Thanks for reading, Ruth! :) If you can’t find dried chickpeas, they may be labeled as garbanzo beans.
