Menu Plan for the Week of April 7

This past week was somewhat of a vacation for us as the girls were on Spring Break from their extracurricular activities. We went on two picnics, spent some serious Q-T at three different playgrounds, rambled at the library, and ate at Chick-fil-A for lunch one day. Plus, the older girls spent Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday with their grandparents livin' it up. It's been fun, spontaneous, and pretty care-free, but I'm ready for a little more structure and we're out of clean towels.

So, I'm back to the drawing board and meal planning for the week.

Do you meal plan? And I don't mean deciding that morning what you're going to fix for supper. I mean planning meals days in advance to eliminate the agonizing question:

"What's for dinner tonight?!"

Having a meal plan, for me, is one less thing to think about. I simply look at the menu posted on our wall and get to work. For more info, check out this meal planning post

So, here's what's on our menu this week:


Chocolate-chip pancakes & sausage 
Barbecue pulled pork, coleslaw, corn-on-the-cob, & easy baked beans
