Weekly Meal Plan for Monday, March 22 – Sunday, March 28

Did you see yesterday’s #naptimehustle on Instagram Live? I made crab cakes! So yum … see the video here.

I am not a nutritionist or a chef. I’m just a mom that knows what flavors I like and that my family likes. The recipes that I’m sharing this week are some that David has made for dinner. Others are taken from this cookbook that my family loves. I will share the changes or additions I’ve made to the recipes and what page the recipes are on. As a blogger I understand that the author of the cookbook makes her money/livelihood through book sales. I will not share the recipe on my blog. I hope my readers will understand this character decision for me. This is a great cookbook and I will be using it for the month. If you decide to follow my meal plan I hope that you’ll invest in this cookbook. It’s DELICIOUS ! If recipes are taken from another blog it will of course be a link directly to the recipe for your reference
