Meal Plans Made Simple #11

I think spring break is starting in some places around the country. Over here they make us wait until the week after Easter, but Tanya and I still put this one together with having kiddos home in mind. Vacation weeks are tricky in this house. No school kind of steals away the structure and there are definitely days that peanut butter crackers seem like a great plan. For me, having a few ideas, some semblance of a plan, keeps us on track (read: not doing dishes at 10:30 p.m.).

Spicy Shrimp Boil via Lemons for Lulu : Meal Plans Made Simple
