March Meal Plan

Wow...I absolutely didn't intend on taking February off from the blog.  I wrote one post in February.  I just couldn't really get inspired to take pictures or write about anything!

I am back, though, and have a plan for three posts a week for all of March, including a garage organization series.

My first post this month is to share my March Meal Plan; I once again planned the entire month.

When I meal plan, I come up with 4 meals per week.  Two of those meals include leftovers, and that leaves one night for eating out.  I vary easy meals with more time-consuming ones, but I do not specify a day for each meal; I put the meat out a day ahead with the next day's plan in mind.  It is very flexible.

This month my boss (I'm a nanny) is having a second baby, so I will be putting in a lot of extra hours to help her out after her C-section.  With that in mind, I planned a lot of quick and easy meals, especially in the second week of the month.

1. Hamburger steak with gravy, rice, green beans
