Meal Plan Week of 1/19-1/25

Here is this week's meal plan! I would love to start incorporating reader recipes, so if you have a "go-to" recipe you would like to share, please email it to me at lil@freshmama.net ! It should be an easy weeknight meal other readers would enjoy (vegetarian, crockpot, make-ahead meals or quick pantry meals are just some examples). If I choose your recipe for a meal plan, I will email you back and let you know when it will be posted! The best thing about this blog has been the reader feedback -- many of you are making recipes from the blog and telling me how much your families enjoy them! Thank you for the feedback, it keeps me motivated when life gets crazy and I don't think I have an extra minute to sit down and write a post. You guys are amazing and I'm thrilled that there are so many Fresh Mamas out there!

This week is a 3 day weekend, so I'm hoping I will have some extra time to get some baking and prep work done! Aaaaand, I just bought a yogurt maker (squeal), so I will be sure to write a post on that!

 
*items in green are from my CSA box


Sunday: Crockpot Baked Beans, Cole Slaw, Ham, applesauce
*Beans are one of my favorite uses for my crockpot, the cole slaw will be made with CSA cabbage, carrots, and apples, the ham is from a local meat co-op

Monday: Caprese French Bread Pizza, carrot salad, orange slices
*This meal is my 7 year old's choice. I try to let the kids pick one meal/week for the meal plan.

Tuesday: Sweet Pork Smothered Burritos , roasted vegetables
*cannot wait to make these! I have been eyeing this recipe for about a month and finally picked up a pork shoulder roast.
