    Week 480 Weekly Menu = VACATION!

    Good morning (or afternoon or whatever it is when you read this)! It’s my kids’ spring break this week and I am ready to really enjoy the time with them! I’ve been working like a crazy person the last two weeks so that I can unplug, at least for a few days. We’re going to do some fun staycation stuff (hello, beach and Legoland), a little bit of camping, and a little bit of nothing.

    In the spirit of our awesome Spring Break, I am also taking a break from planning the weekly menu! First off, I have no idea what each day is going to be like. Secondly, I hardly ever give myself a break from the meal plan, so this felt like a good week to do it! 😉

    If you’d like to get inspiration from older menus, click here!

    And, PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE, post your plan for this week below so that you all can get ideas from each other! 

    Thanks, everyone! See you in a few days!
