Menu Plan Monday, 04/29/2013

This week Joe and I are working on some projects for the house, like fixing up two lamps for the living room.  We are also gearing up for the first event here at the museum, where we have a few things to set up for sale.  I tried to keep the menu simple this week, to help get us through until we get paid and can go grocery shopping.  Here's what's on the menu...
