Meal Plan: Slow, Southern and Sunny

Slow because I love my slow cooker. Southern because I am and that’s the finest kind of frugal, comfort food. Sunny, simply because it’s spring time! I’ve been browsing my Southern Living magazines and their site for a fresh, two weeks worth of meal ideas. With a few Hodgepodge favorites thrown in for good measure.

First, Cooking Fun.

Breakfasts: All of these look great! Kid-Friendly Breakfast Bites. Also we’ll do bagels, pancakes and our favorite Sunbutter® toast.

Lunch: I promised to post greener, healthier, arthritis friendly recipes. I’ll concentrate on that for lunch! (above, sometimes Mama has apples, avocado, apple, olives and Sunbutter. A grown up nibble tray!)

    I think I’ll just print this and put it on the fridge. 😉

    I’m not sure why the feed isn’t going to my google reader, I’ll have to check and force it through. I love that I get updates on my FB page!

    I love the mom’s “nibble tray”. I went back and read your post on eating healthier for arthritis because I missed it. It is funny because it was published on my son’s 4th birthday, which was also the day I decided it was time to lose the last of my “baby fat” and decided to cut out sugar and and any other processed foods. A couple of days ago, I noticed that my arthritis symptoms had lessened significantly. I even went a whole day without taking ibuprofin. I had been wondering if it could be related to my new diet and now I am even more curious!

    The turkey and avocado wrap looks delicious. Thanks for sharing the Southern Living site; I am always happy to find a new resource.

      Alea! another something we share – arthritis :) So glad that you, too, are finding relief in eating healthy and cutting out sugar. It is a big deal when you can go without ibuprofin a whole day. Let me tell you, I have been eating a ton of avocado!! Sort of my sugar replacement. Let me know the recipes you end up trying. Thanks for stopping by.
