Easter is also on Sunday, and I have a lot of prep work to do for the holiday – candy making, baking, and of course housework. Since this Easter is a big family day for us, and is more labor intensive, I have decided that for most of this week I want to take it a bit easier with the meal plan.
Weekly Meal Plan
- PB&J and fruit
- Grilled Cheese and carrots
- Lentil Soup
- Beef Tri Tip Roast, Roasted Veggies
- Waffles & Bacon
- Pulled Dr Pepper BBQ Chicken Sandwiches, Veggies with Ranch Dip
- Tacos, Refried Beans, Spanish Rice
- Steaks on the grill, Baked Potatoes, Salad
- Spaghetti & Meatballs
Beyond the Meal Plan
This week, I am doing a lot to prep for Easter brunch on Sunday. There will be between 18-20 of us, so the more I can plan and accomplish in advance the more smoothly everything will go.
While my guests are bringing things, I still have a lot to accomplish. I want to make candy for the children’s Easter baskets – chocolate bunnies, coconut creams, buttercreams, and peanut butter cups. If I over do it with the candy (which I usually do) I will also make small baskets for all of our brunch guests.
Easter brunch also means a crazy amount of baking. We usually have at least 4 desserts. This year, I want to make lemon meringue pie, hummingbird cake, tres leches coconut cake, and sour cream poundcake. Depending on the time constraints, and how much other stuff I have to do, will determine how much baking I get to do, but I only bake like this a few times a year, so I’m really hoping that I get to do it all!
What’s on your meal plan for the upcoming week?
