Meal Plan Monday: 3/31-4/6/14

Wondering how or why to meal plan? Read this first. Wondering what all the letters (S, E, FP) mean after each meal? Check this out. I've also added page numbers if the recipe comes from the Trim Healthy Mama book.

You'll notice that all the dinners that my family and I are eating this week are some sort of ethnic food. We are talking about different cultures this week in my girls' homeschooling curriculum so I thought it would be fun to add in some different food as well. They helped to plan the menu and will help prepare the food as well.
