Menu Plan Week of 5/4

After posting my plan this week, I had to come back and exclaim my excitement over the fact that the warm weather is starting to affect our weekly meals. More light meals like Monday's Chicken, Black Bean and Corn Tostadas (which is really just more like a light taco salad), with fresh guacamole. I also am excited about this year's first appearance of one of my favorites: tomato, basil and fresh mozzarella. I can't enjoy this without really good tomatoes, and short of the ones from my garden, this is the time of year where you can occasionally find some good ones in the stores. I love the warm weather and all of the future goodies that the warm weather promises!

This week's meals come in at right around $27.
