Menu Monday, March 25 (Easter Week)

Easter Lilies
This is a super busy week for us.  

Preparations for hosting our first-ever Messianic Seder (following Justin Kron's wonderful guideline) on Thursday have been a little more time-consuming than I had hoped, but we are so very excited about adding this experience to our Easter Week.  

Also, after church on Easter we are hosting Brunch and possibly dinner, too.  So having a menu plan this week is going to be immensely helpful.

If that weren't enough, we still are doing school this week and I'm trying to get the bulk of my Spring Cleaning done.

I'm going to be soooo ready for Easter Vacation next week!
