Mid-Century Menu Monday: March 23 to 29

Thank you for sharing us with your friends!

The last mid-century meal plan for March. I don’t know about you, but I am DONE with the 90-day free trial of the New Roaring ‘20s, and I’d like to cancel my subscription now! Anyway, since almost EVERYONE is home for all three meals, I went ahead and did all the menus for all 21 meals this week. And I recommend adding a snack of bread and jam for children at 3:00 in the afternoon. Here’s the 1940s meal plan for Mid-Century Menu Monday: March 23-29.
