Meal Plans Made Simple #4

We moved.

You might have noticed that it is Friday and not Monday. I didn’t mean to scare you into thinking that the week was starting all over again or anything. After some very unscientific polling and some Facebook questions about your grocery habits we figured out that a) you guys like new food ideas and b) you either shop every day or you shop on the weekend. So here are your meal idea for next week. I gotta tell ya — I think this is my favorite meal plan yet.
