Meal plans and the week ahead

We have a very low key week this week. Hopefully that means we'll be productive. I've been doing a lot of spring cleaning these last 3 weeks or so and would like to finish it up this week. And hopefully the weather is somewhat decent this week, too. 

Today we're headed to church at Resurrection Reformed.  We may go to Longway Planetarium this afternoon since we didn't go a couple of weeks ago, but we'll just see how the afternoon plays out.  We may save it for another day again.  Thursday I will be down in Detroit and Windsor all day for a tour with some U.S. Dept. of State officials.  Kevin may be off on Friday for Good Friday - I think he is, but he doesn't - so if he is off, I may try to work extra each day this week so I can just use a few vacation hours and have Friday off, but at this point I'm working.  Friday is my day to pick up milk and we're still on every-other week CSA pick up, so I'll swing by the mill, too.  Saturday we have no plans at the moment, but we may be doing an Easter dinner with my in-laws since they're going to be gone on Easter Sunday in the afternoon.  So we'll play it by ear for now.

Sounds like some yummy meals! I'm jealous of all of your salads. I'd love to eat a salad every day for lunch. But it will be a while before I'm ready for that. I try to be good and only do a few bites of raw veggies here and there. Really stinks.

Anxious to hear about all of the paleo recipes.

Good luck with the cleaning.
