Menu Planning: April 15th Edition

Yep. I'm a wee bit off schedule since posting my last menu plan. But, it is with good cause! We've been traveling and visiting family! We're home, (mostly) settled in, and (not even a bit) unpacked. Most of us are back on Texas time - the last straggler is going to be a challenge. She likes her naps!

Surprising to me, I actually did a really good job of following our last menu plan. We had a couple of detours, but overall we stuck to it! The hardest part for me, is sticking to my personal eating plan because I'm trying to drop a few pounds. I'm using 3Young Living oils to curb my appetite, increase my metabolism, and kick my sweet tooth (really, I have a savory tooth, but same concept) and I'm also using the 21-Day Fix by Beachbody. I am NOT drinking shakes or other meal supplements and AM using their containers for portion control and planning. So far, so good!

All that said, here's what I'm planning to cook/serve my family over the next two weeks!

I'd LOVE it if you would share some of your favorite recipes and menu items!!
