Meal Plan and Grocery List 4/27- 5/3

This weekend has been absolutely beautiful and consequently seems to have flown by. I can't believe that's it's already Sunday night and time to post another meal plan. According to last week's meal plan tonight I was supposed to make Quick Fettuccine Cacciatore. I didn't want to waste a minute of the finally-nice weather. So instead of cooking, we took a family bike ride, played some corn hole in the driveway, blew bubbles, and ran around the back yard laughing. Like I say in the guide to meal planning, the plan does have to be flexible. I have a feeling this flexibility will come into play more often as the weather gets warmer and evening plans become more spontaneous. For now, I've got a plan in place for the week ahead and here it is:

Monday April 27th

Chicken with Black Bean Salsa

Tuesday April 28th

Spaghetti and Garlic Bread
I love the way this Spaghetti with meatballs from Reeni at Cinnamon and Spice and Everything Nice looks. If I have time, I may try it this week.

Wednesday April 29th

Taco Salad

Thursday April 30th

Minestrone with Tuscan Polenta Bread

Friday May 1st

Make Your Own Pizza
