The days are just packed! And they are flying by. March is almost over. Where did it go? We are still on vacation, or a long weekend, take your pick. But, since I plan meals out by the month and filled the freezer weeks ago, we’re good to go on this week’s meals. (Forget the fact that we’re out of milk and fruit. Gotta remember to pick some up on the way home!)

Here’s our meal plan for the week:

Chicken Enchiladas, Beans, Rice [6], Salad
Grilled Steak, Couscous Salad, Pita Bread (recipes coming!)
Pasta with Red Sauce, Salad, Garlic Bread
Chicken w/ Tomatoes and Feta Cheese Sauce (eventually I’ll get a good pic and post this one, too)
Pizza [7], Veggies and Dip
Chimichangas [5]
