Meal Planning #4

Happy {belated} Easter from our family to yours!

We started our day off right with waffles & sausage for breakfast before heading to church for our Easter service.

I hope that y'all got to enjoy your Sunday and that you were able to spend plenty of time with your family. Patrick and I were lucky enough to be able to hang out with both sides of our families - lunch with his family and dinner with mine.
Have you got all of your meals planned out for the week yet? We made the rookie mistake of thinking that we could do our grocery shopping yesterday afternoon. Um... well, apparently everything is closed on Easter Sunday? Not sure how we missed that memo. Anyway, here's what we've got on tap in our kitchen this week:
Sunday - Hamburgers, Salad, & FF
Monday - Easter lunch & dinner leftovers
Tuesday - Taco Tuesday {end of tax season YAY!}
Wednesday - Brined & Baked Chicken w/ Veggies
Friday - Out to Dinner
It's a big week of celebrations in our house this week. Tax season is officially over tomorrow afternoon at 5pm and I finally get my husband back! I know how excited I am and I'm not even the one suffering through actually doing the tax season work. We'll be doing a little celebrating at the end of the week with a night out at the Fireflies game on Thursday and a fun day around Columbia on Friday.
Have a great week!


  1. Waffles and sausage sound like the best way to start any day! And love that you have your meal planning figured out for the week, I need to do that so I'm not standing in front of the fridge every night trying to figure out what to make! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  2. Meal planning is my best friend :) I love knowing my plan for the week before heading into it... so helpful! Yay for the end of tax season too!

  3. I have learned that EAster lesson in the past myself! I love meal planning!

  4. Good for you on the meal planning! I actually did go to the grocery store last night and there was one open (and I'll say it was much more enjoyable than my normal Sunday grocery shopping)! We're doing cajun lime chicken with veggies tonight and I also have a Hawaiian pork to cook this week. Aside from that, my planning hasn't been that stellar.
