Meal Plan & a recipe

I have been away from blogging for a little while. Work has been VERY busy for me, and my husband....thankfully I took some time off this week just for me! It is like and adult Spring Break! HA HA I am hoping to spend some time connecting with some friends for lunches, and connecting with some blog friends again. I have been very MIA from visiting/commenting on blogs.

One of my favorite things that started me with blogging is Monday's Meal Plan....

Monday-tuna pasta *see recipe below
Wednesday-out (we are hoping to go to Cape May for the day)
Thursday-pork chops, stuffing and green beans
Friday-Mahi-Mahi and rice
Sunday-Easter Dinner

tuna pasta

2 carrots-chopped and diced
2 stalks of celery-chopped and diced
1 small onion-chopped and diced
2 dill pickle spears-chopped and diced
1 lemon-zest only
1/2 box pasta-cooked and drained (rotini works well)
1 cup mayo
Old Bay Seasoning
Ground Black Pepper

Cook pasta, drain and mix all other ingredients together. Add the pasta and mix well. This is delicious served warm, but makes great left overs for the week stored in the fridge.

Today, I met up with Lisa from The Long Road to China. We had a great lunch, and I really enjoyed meeting Lisa in person and hearing her stories of adoption. She is just as beautiful and sweet in person as she appears in her blog. Thank you Lisa for a great lunch and for taking time out of your day to meet in person!! : )

Tomorrow, I am running errands in town and dropping off my spring/summer drop off to Little Rascals (our local consignment store). I have started really linking up with coupons and  this blog which is a local lady that helps with coupon matching for our local MD stores. I spent $56 at the grocery store on Saturday and saved just over $35! I was happy with that first attempt of stacking coupons, etc... Once I get better, I will be glad to post my deals!

Have a great week!! I know I will : )
