March Meal Plan Week 5
March Meal Plan Week 5 is here to help you plan your dinners this month. Has your world turned upside down? Meal planning is more important than ever.
Hello friends. I know with the recent events in the world right now you may not have access to some of the ingredients in this and upcoming weekly meal plans.
These weekly menu planning posts have been planned out at least a month or more in advance. Below you'll find some tips on how to meal plan with the current state of the world.
- Pick out the recipes you think you will like and bookmark them for later.
- Use the recipes that you have ingredients on hand for or make substitutions with the ingredients you do have on hand.
- Print out the recipes and keep a copy with you when you go shopping so you can grab ingredients as they become available.
- Join the Flour On My Face Facebook page where I am sharing links for some of the easy homemade basic recipes that I have been sharing for over 10 years.

How to meal plan with all this craziness
If you are having trouble following a meal plan recently you are not alone. You are going to have to make adjustments based on the ingredients you have on hand or can buy.
Try to find recipes that are easy to adjust based on the ingredients you have one hand. If you are missing an ingredient for a favorite recipe try to find a substitution.
Or just leave the ingredient out if you don't have it. This will work well for some recipes.
Other recipes that you are missing the main ingredient will have to be saved for a later time.
Basic food items like bread are hard to come by. You can make homemade bread if you have flour, some type of dairy or even water, sugar, butter, and yeast.
If you can't find yeast you can make a natural yeast with flour and water called sourdough starter.
I show you how to make your own natural yeast in my How To Make Sourdough Starter recipe.
If you have yeast you can make this easy homemade bread recipe that is easy to slice for sandwiches.
