Meal Plan One

A Cheap and Easy Recipe Week

This weekend just flew! We had friends come stay from Vancouver and it was so good to see them again. It was crazy that I hadn’t seen them since January but I guess that is Island living, you don’t leave unless you really need to.

This week, the meal plan is primarily vegetarian as Alex and I feel like we need lots of veggies. If that doesn’t sound appealing, there is always the option to buy some meat and have it through the meals. On the plus side with this plan too, it was a cheap week! Most of the ingredients should already be in your cupboard and if not, they are not expensive to buy.
