Cooking - THM Meal Plan for 04/11/2016 - 04/17/2016

     Having a meal plan helps me stay on track of many thing. One is my diet. Knowing what I need to grab for the day, is a huge help for a busy working mom that is running out the door. It also helps me stay on budget for the week. I can make one trip to the store and be able to cook for the week. It is a huge help. It also keeps me sane. I have so much going on. If I have a menu, I'm not think what am I cooking tonight for dinner.
