How was everyone’s Easter? Ours was FABULOUS – lots of good food, lots of laughs, lots of jelly beans… it couldn’t have been better.
For this month, I’ve got a few tried and true recipes, including our favorite Man Bread. As usual, I’ve worked this around our schedule which isn’t so normal this go-around (that’s life, right?). I always use my tried and true method when I make a meal plan to make it much easier.
With Spring in the air it’s time to start eating more fresh vegetables. I’m excited to roll up my sleeves and hit my frugal urban garden! The farmer’s market is about to be in full swing too, and I use these farmer’s market budget tips when I shop.
Feel free to mix and match to fit your family’s schedule and eat up leftovers as needed!
