Menu Plan Monday: April 30, 2018
Spring weather is finally here and I’m excited for all the new fruits and veggies of the season to hit the produce section at my local supermarkets. I mentioned a couple of weeks ago on Facebook that I was having trouble finding rhubarb, but it’s finally popping up and yesterday – to my daughters’ delight – I made a batch of my Rhubarb Ginger Lemon Muffins in mini-muffin form. Unfortunately some of my other spring favorites like radishes aren’t yet available, but hopefully soon.
Speaking of produce, does the Dirty Dozen list make you nervous about buying non-organic fruits and veggies? If so, please read this post from my archives about why you can calm down about it. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic – share with me in the comments below or on that post.
Now for this week’s menu. I have to say I’ve been feeling a little uninspired in the kitchen lately, so if you have any favorite recipes your family loves, please share them with me. I’d love to try something new! In the meantime, check out below what’s going to be on our table!
