The week before Easter is probably a busy one for all of us. We are having the kids and grandkids over for Easter dinner, so I've got to be extra careful to get my cleaning done early in the week. That way, I'll have lots of baking time for Easter dinner.
I will have to post my Easter dinner sometime during the week. I haven't finalized it yet, but I bought a spiral ham today at Aldi's for $0.85 per pound, and that is fantastic! They have the best hams! Seriously, if you haven't tried one, you need to run to Aldi's and get one before they are all gone.
I usually have deviled eggs, baked ham, broccoli and cheese, mashed potatoes, and a couple salads I haven't decided upon yet. Dessert will definitely be carrot cake and a lemon pie of some sort. I have a recipe for a carrot cake that hands down beats all the other carrot cakes I've made. If I can remember to take a picture of it, I will try and post it next week.
For this week, I have lots of goodies planned. There are a couple new recipes for me to try, plus some tried and true oldies but goodies. I am in the mood to bake, so there are several new gluten free recipes for breakfast I am going to try this week.
Here is my menu plan for this week:

That's it for this week! I know it sounds like lots of baking, but I love to bake and for some reason I am in the mood to bake bake bake! I think I am realizing that summer is coming, and when it gets too hot to bake I really miss it! So I better get baking while it's still cool enough.
Have a wonderful week, and I hope you find a meal plan or two here you want to make for your family!
