Monthly menu plan - March/April


Cherry Tomatoes

I love this time of year so much! It really feels like you get the best of both worlds - gloriously sunny afternoons that you can stretch right into and relax in tempered by a chill that descends and makes you plan your next casserole/knitting project/movie to watch whilst snuggled under a blanket. Autumn, you make me appreciate being alive.

  2. Thanks for sharing this. I really do need to get my act together and plan my meals. I love the easy meals you put together. I only wish my kids weren't as picky with food.
