Menu Plan Monday: Week of March 30, 2015
Getting ready for Passover, recipes and links I loved from last week, and this week’s Menu Plan Monday!
Hope everyone had a great weekend! Although it still doesn’t feel like spring (Saturday was 36 degrees!), we did some spring cleaning around here to get ready for Passover, which starts this Friday night. As the week progresses I’ll finish clearing the pantry of the cereals, grains, and snack foods we can’t eat next week and I’ll fill our shelves with the Kosher for Passover staples we’ll need for the 8-day holiday.
I’ll be making some recipes this week that will use up some of those pantry goods (e.g. canned beans) and that we can’t eat over Passover (e.g. pasta). Check out my menu below to see what’s planned. But before you do, check out these posts and recipes I enjoyed last week. I hope you do too!

Great ideas! I haven’t had jicama is a long time. I love that you have it in your plan.
Thanks Betsy! Jicama is so great, but I think underutilized in cooking! Hope you get to have it again soon!
Hi Jessica, Love your link love! Your menu plan looks nice. My son is home, and because he loves to grill, I am taking advantage of that. Lots of grilled chicken, repurposed into cob salad or as a Caesar salad topping. Made a big pot of black beans and will do something with them. Have a terrific week!!!!
Thanks Diane! So nice your son is home and will grill for you! I can’t wait for the weather to get nice enough here to start grilling too! Can’t wait to see what you do with the black beans! Have a great week!
Thanks for including my recipe! Let me know how they turn out! 🙂 That broccoli pasta sounds amazing too!
You’re welcome! So excited to try it. Thanks – Going to add some beans to it too. I’ve made it before and it’s delish!
I’m glad I didn’t grocery shop for the week yet– I’m making your sun-dried tomato and broccoli pasta!! Thanks for sharing the cauliflower round-up too! Here’s to a great week 🙂
Glad I could inspire! Hope you enjoy it. I have made it before and it’s delish. I add some beans to it too. Have a great week!
