  1. Hi! I love how menu planning helps with food budgeting. Thanks so much for stopping by the Chivetalkin Menu Plan Blog Roll. Please come again next week. Cheers! Jenna

  2. Your meals look great – I love the chicken salad my roommate just bought a chicken salad cookbook and I’m excited to try out all the different ways to make chicken salad (especially using avocado instead of mayo to make it healthier)! You should check out springpad’s weekly meal planner – it’s a great way to organize all of your menus and recipes, I think you’d really like it!

    1. Thanks for letting me know about Springpad, it looks really cool!

  3. I love having ham leftovers. There’s so many meals you can create.
    Great menu planned!
