Welcome back to another Menu Plan Monday! I hope you find these weekly meal plans as handy as I do. They keep me organized and on track. And they keep my family well-fed with simple, delicious, nutritious meals. Win-win.
Mostly, this week was all about work. And income tax. Sigh. We did go and have some fun on Wednesday though. As we do most weeks, my daughter, grandson, and I headed to Stars and Strollers. It’s our little venture out of the house and let’s be honest – it’s our sanity saver! Before the movie, we grabbed some poutine from New York Fries (our FAVE)! Then we headed to the theatre to see the movie Love, Simon. We both highly recommend it. It carries such an important message about love and acceptance. In fact, we liked it so much that when we headed to Build-a-Bear after the movie, we named the bear Simon. All in all, it was a fun afternoon with my two favourite people. Next week is Holy Week for us, so I’m really concentrating on simple, quick meals.
