Can you believe it’s Easter on Sunday. It came up so fast and landed right on April fool’s day.

Doing anything tricky for this special occasion? I saw a few things on Facebook, like unwrapping foil wrapped chocoalte eggs and using the foil to wrap grapes.

But we have to get through a whole week before we hit Easter and so let’s get to our meal plan for this week.

This week is a week full of meals that start with items from the freezer. The artichoke chicken starts with pre-cooked chicken I made for the freezer.

The meatballs and tacos start with meatballs I made ahead of time and have waiting in the freezer. As well as pre-cooked ground beef for the tacos.

Then we move onto the pork items. I’ve pork chops and pork roast in the freezer from the pork loin I purchased and cut the roasts and chops for the freezer.

So all of our meals will be easy to get done, since I have starts for them in the frezer.

We’ll be enjoying slow cooker roast beef for our Easter dinner. We usually have ham but I found a good deal on roast a few weeks ago and picked a couple up for our meal.

  1. That artichoke chicken recipe looks fantastic! I love artichokes. I’m trying to fill my menu plan with meals I can stretch this week.

    1. We had the artichoke chicken tonight for dinner. It was really good. We have enough leftover for lunch tomorrow. I love when I can stretch one meal into two. I hope you have a great week and you find some good meals to stretch.
