Meal Plan April 11, 2016

Okay, let’s get right to it! You’ve got birthday parties to drop a kid off at, soccer games to shiver through and by God you’ve got groceries to buy. This week’s meal plan is pretty sweet, if I do say so myself. If you’re a Sunday batch cooker (and if you’re not, why not?!), then you could whip up the soup and curry and really make this week much more chill. Tweet at me –@spchronicles #batchcooking  if you’ll be in the kitchen, too, on Sunday afternoon, I can always use the company.

We’ll be starting with a meatless Monday curry. It’s a delicious chickpea and cauliflower combo. You will for sure have leftovers for lunches. Then, for my pal Lisa, whose kids have decided that every Tuesday must now be a Taco Tuesday, we’ve got some easy beef tacos. On Wednesday it’s a one-pot pasta because one pot, people! There’s an easy, cheesy broccoli soup on Thursday and we’ll end the week with the recipe that I will not stop yelling about until you make it. Remember to toss everything in the slow cooker on Friday morning and then you’ll come home to dinner.

Let us know how you’re doing – we love hearing from you!
