Menu Plan Monday - Week of April 14, 2013

Pork loin, asparagus, fruit, and couscous! Yummy!
As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I started feeling in a bit of a rut when it comes to cooking around here.  I've been trying some new baking recipes and pulling out some old favorites we haven't had for quite a while.   We still have very busy weeks - though they are slightly less busy since we don't have Lenten worship anymore during the week - and we're trying to keep things simple.  It doesn't always work but that's the plan!

We're still also trying to eat what we have in the freezers so we can empty them for our bulk meat purchase and the summer CSA veggies.  Making progress but I still feel like we have a LONG way to go!  Slow and steady wins the race, right, and it's such a blessing to have so much food in the house!

Here's what we're eating this week:
