April Menu Plan and a Not So Shabby Winner

The lucky winner of the Shabby Apple Dress Giveaway is  


Thanks to all of you who entered.
Well, my blog reading pals….April has sprung among us.
I hope the spring weather that is suppose to accompany April will arrive very soon. Right now all I see in my back yard is snow covering all of the little tulips that are trying to make their way into this cold and snowy world. 
Soon it will all melt and we’ll be tiptoeing though those tulips, without a single frostbitten worry. 
I hope.

Until then, lets talk menu plan. My April Menu Plan is what I have up for you this morning. I hope you find something you and your family will enjoy. Treasure, even! 
That is my hope on this fine morning….
That and a little wish for real-live-spring.

    Fabulous menu! I'll be stealing some of your choices this month. Your menu always sounds so much better than mine. I am praying that this year Easter will be warm and sunny (and we do not have to hunt for Easter eggs in the snow)!

    Just found your site from Mandy's Recipe Box. Where have you been all my life? So many of your recipes look SO GOOD, and I am super picky. I can't wait to try them! I am assuming you are making the spiral ham with honey mustard sauce for Easter. It sounds divine! Any chance you are going to post it before Easter? I would love to make it!

    Hi Kim,
    Thanks for your kind words. I hope the recipes turn out well for you. I am indeed hoping to get the ham and honey mustard posted in the next couple of weeks.
    Have a great night and thanks for stopping by!

    Great menu ideas for the month! I love that you post monthly menus…I'm pretty sure my family does too!
    🙂 Oh yeah!! Cheesy potatoes and the strawberry cream cheese jello salad (is this the one with the pretzel crust?)…those are a must for Easter dinner around here too! YUM!

    Just found this sight (from Butter Yum who posted the meatloaf recipe she got here) and I love it! I'm way into comfort foods, Southern cooking and old cookbooks. I'm your newest follower and hope that you'll visit my humble blog in return…and follow me if you like the blog :0)
