    You have me now wanting chicken salad. LOL. I haven’t made it in so long. I guess I know what’s going to be on my meal plan for next week. Have a great Sunday!

    I have really been liking these “meal plan” posts–I have been reading them almost every Sunday to get myself pumped to plan our menu and go shopping.

    Sandwiches are like the perfect meal – they’re filling, can include all 4 food groups, and are so satisfying! I think I need to include a tuna melt on my menu this week because that sounds SO good to me right now. :D

    I appreciate the meal plan posts, too! It reminds me to plan meals ahead of time to stay on a healthy track during the week (at least).
