Wow, what a great weekend! We had unseasonably warm temperatures here. We took advantage of all that warm sunshine and spent a good portion of time outdoors playing, picnicking, and taking a walk. Saturday night, my husband and I had an at-home date where I whipped up in a game of Boggle. Exciting times, I know. 😉
I woke up early Sunday morning to work on our meal plan and grocery list. Yay food!

A few notes about the menu this week:
Mexican Refried Bean Pies is a terrible name. Basically, you layer crunched up tortilla chips, refried beans, onions, garlic, peppers, tomatoes, and salsa in individual ramekins. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Crack an egg into each ramekin, top with a little cheese & salt/pepper. Return to the oven for an additional 10-14 minutes, depending on how done you like your eggs.
The Paleo PF Chang’s lettuce wraps are amazing. A friend made them for a supper club a few years back, and I have held on to the recipe ever since. Super filling and easy to make if you use a food processor to chop the veggies. Highly recommend. You can use regular soy sauce for the coconut aminos if you aren’t paleo.
The Rustic Cabbage Soup is a very simple dish but SO GOOD. Make sure to season it well with salt otherwise the flavor falls flat. It’s perfect for when you have a winter cold and you need something warm but not too heavy. Also, Heidi’s site is simply beautiful.
So that’s what’s on the menu for the week. My mouth waters every time I type up my weekly menu!
Has anyone started meal planning all their meals? I’d love to hear how it is going for you in the comments!
