Menu Plan Monday 5/4/15

Happy Monday, I'm flying by the seat of my pants this week for a plan.  I've been planting flowers and spreading mulch this past weekend and haven't been cooking or thinking of cooking much.  I'm still watching my pennies (literally, lol) so cooking and eating at home is a must.  I also found four packages of organic chicken for a fantastic price so I bought them all!  Needless to say, chicken is on the menu this week. 

Sunshine and roses to you.

I'm hoping to make some extra things this week for lunches and to just have in the frig for snacking for the boys.  Here are a few of the recipes on my mind.
