Well, well, well… here we are in the middle of total and complete chaos.  Maybe that sounds a little dramatic, but at this point, we’re on a Stay At Home order in the state of New Jersey and it’s all just very…. different.  With staying home 24/7 except to hit the grocery store, I have been cooking nonstop bc what else is there really to do!  I figured I’d share my Meal Plan with you to help you during this time when some of us might not know where to begin! Some of the recipes are from other websites, some are my own, but its a lot of comfort food so definitely don’t try calculating calories on this lineup!  If you are ever looking for some new recipes, I’m always updating my Pinterest Board with some new meals so definitely give it a follow!

Here’s some recipes we’ve had lately:
