Menu Plan Monday - May 2, 2016

 Menu Plan Monday on May 2, 2016 | My week of meals and grocery list! #menuplan #groceries

Good morning, everyone! I struggled to meal plan this week for no reason at all, so I'm still trying to get my grocery list made. This week I'm going to try and make the parfait that I've been meaning to make for literally a year. I'm also making a few old favorites (Tues and Fri) and making a few that I forgot to get pictures for. I'm also making a few recipes out of some cookbooks that will be linked below (using affiliate links to Amazon).

This weekend is a little bare on Saturday, but I'm also very excited for it because we are celebrating my soon-to-be brother-in-law's birthday (which is actually today) and Nick's birthday (which is the 14th, but he has drill that day). I decided to go with Vanilla Chai Cupcakes for them because Nick (BIL) was a Marine and, as most of you know, Nick (my husband) was in the Army, so they have bonded over their deployment go-juice: Green Beans! They both really loved the Chai Tea Lattes and Smoothies, so I figured this would be a perfect fit for the two of them :) I've written about it a lot with recipes, but it's my mission to pick something awesome and catered to the birthday person to surprise them!
