Meal Plan Monday - Week of April 11

We've had a super-busy weekend, so I went with a really simple meal plan this week.

Thursday has become a crazy night for us - Big Sprout's baseball practice at 5, Little Sprout's soccer practice at 6 and me leaving for dance around 7. Last week, I tried serving dinner before we left, but taco salad at 4PM didn't go over well with any of us. This week, I decided to make what the Sprouts like to call a "snack-y dinner" for Thursday, so we can take it with us and they can eat it whenever they're hungry.

Big Sprout will also be back in the kitchen this week, as he's chosen to make the samosa recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance. I've never made this one and it seems like it may be a bit tricky, so I'm anxious to see how it turns out.
