    I’m a mushroom lover too, and I push them on DH all the time lol. He’s learned to love them from living with me the last 5 years.

    Mexican lasagna sounds delish! I wish they served that in the college dining hall 🙁 If you’re looking for a way to organize your weekly meal plans, you should totally check out springpad’s weekly meal planner- it’s a great tool for keeping organized!

    Thank you for your Monday Meal Plans! I was getting back into a slump,and have decided to implement your soup of the week so we will have some lunches ready and not be tempted by the golden arches when I am really busy. Keep up the inspiring work!

    I’m loving Friday nights dinner….so much so that I sort of borrowed your idea.
    Instead of being frustrated at the Lent season, I’m looking forward to rolling out some new recipes! I love that you remind me to experiment with new recipes. I needed to get out of my grilled cheese rut.

    there’s nothing wrong with grilled cheese lol. I miss grilled cheese….mmmm….cheese. :op Even though we aren’t Catholic, I love when Lent comes around. There are good deals on seafood and we get to have lots of it for cheap. I also get to try out new recipes(shrimp and grits coming soon!) and see which ones the family loves. Those get added into the rotation.

    CVS addict,

    so glad you are doing the soup of the week now! It really is a life-saver. I made ours yesterday, separated it into the little plastic containers that I got at the dollar store(you know, the ones that the chinese place gives you egg drop soup in), and was done with everyone’s lunch for the week!
