Weekly Meal Plan #77

My highlight from this last week was actually a “low-light.” Sometimes I can have great plans for meals, or at least full plans. This last week was not one of those times. I knew I was going to be busy planning and executing a birthday party, so I tried to think of easy meals for before the party and then ways to use up leftover ham for after the party. My plans did not pan out. I kept forgetting to soak the dried beans overnight to use for the ham and bean soup. I never gave myself enough time to prep the potatoes to make the scalloped ham and potato casserole. What did that mean? I was grateful to my stock of English Muffins and sandwich bread in the freezer. Lots of quick sandwiches!
