Menu Plan Monday, Pre-Birthday Edition

A day early, too! I’m not a day late! Or a week late! My birthday is a week from tomorrow (May 4 — please send all gifts to my house, ha ha) and I will be turning 30. Next week’s “menu plan” may consist of every day saying “eat whatever Jennie wants to eat” because I am like that. But this week I’ve tried to make a plan for things that will use up what we already have, not make too much of a mess, and still be tasty. I don’t know why I used French days of the week. I must be feeling pretentious.
