Meal planning and prepping tips
If you're new here...
Every week, I share a free meal plan for you to use the following week. You'll have seven main dish recipes, along with a few extras and of course dessert.
Typically the weekly meal plans are named by number of the week and date. For example, if the plan is for the first week of January, I'll name it Weekly Meal Plan 1 - Jan 3-9. Next year the plans will be updated for the corresponding dates and tasty new recipes!
Don't forget - if you have a busy day and plan on eating out, just drop a day off the menu and adjust the meal plan to fit YOUR busy life!
Here are some shortcuts and tips for this week's menu!
- If you make a bone-in ham, don't toss the ham bone! Add it to your soup this week, it will impart all it's flavor into the stew!
- Make the Rhubarb Pie Saturday night so it's ready for Easter dinner! The sweet potatoes can be made up to three days ahead of time.
- Ham salad will keep in the fridge three days - it's an easy dinner and great for lunches during the week.
- Black eyed pea soup freezes great! It can be frozen up to three months as well.
Happy Easter! If you're cooking for the holiday, here's my favorite recipe to enjoy; Marmalade Glazed Ham.
