Menu Plan for the Week of March 25th

Last week I took a break from formal meal planning because we were on Spring Break and spent some time at the grandparents', but this week we are back in the swing of things and trying out some more new recipes. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I have started doubling up some of our favorite recipes to freeze because of the little one due to debut soon. This week is no exception either. It is such a blessing not to have to worry about meal planning and cooking in the weeks after a new baby arrives, so you can spend that time and energy in more important ways.

That being said, here is what we will be eating at our house this week:

Sunday, March 25
Breakfast: French toast with maple syrup
Lunch: Leftovers
Dinner: Grilled chicken Caesar salad with baked potatoes (sweet potato fries for the kiddos)
