Menu Plan Monday - April 11

Good morning! How do you like the new layout??
I almost forgot it was Monday and that I needed to post my menu plan! Thank goodness I remembered!
Last week was full of checkups for the kiddos, a youth retreat for our oldest, and an last minute trip to drive 4 hours to go look at a potential house! So fun, but mama's tired. I also cleaned out the fridge and learned two very good lessons last week - It's always a good thing to stay on top of cleaning out the fridge -and- It's always a good idea to check the fridge before going grocery shopping. I usually try to clean out the fridge every week (leftover night!) but the last two weeks, the meals we've had didn't have leftovers, so there was no need to empty out those.However, I went grocery shopping, came home and deiced that was the time to clean out and reorganize the fridge, and found out that we now have 4 pounds of baby carrots, and two big brand new bottles of mustard. OOPS!! Too bad they can't be eaten together! Haha But- the fridge is happy again. Which makes me happy. :D

Before! :(
