How To Use This Week’s Menu

Shake off any negativity with a week’s worth of comfort food! Make the Mini Meatloaf with Garlic Pesto Potatoes on Sunday and prep the Oreo Truffles while you wait for dinner to bake.

Speaking of pesto, we are going to use a lot of it this month, so if you’re going to Costco, pick up a jar of theirs. It’s sold at a great price and so tasty!

Monday night should be the Thai Beef with Coconut Rice. It’s great for the first meal, but makes for excellent lunch leftovers, too!

Finally, do the Stovetop Mac and Cheese and on another night. It is the perfect combination of nutrition and comfort. In short – a lovely March meal!
