Menu Plan Monday

Amazing!, I'm actually early on the meal plan this week. I didn't do WIWS because Brian was still gone with Coast Guard so I had no one to take a picture of me. But after that Mass with William (on my own at 8:00 two days in a row!) I was in NO MOOD to have my picture taken anyway. Brian is back now and I am sooo glad! William and I were both in sore need of Daddy's presence. Now we're settling in for some quality family time this evening. A cold front is blowing in tonight and tomorrow. This afternoon it was 78* and by tomorrow night, it'll be 27*! Hooray for feeling like December for at least a few days! On to the meals...
