Menu Plan Monday: Week of April 13, 2015
A good start to the week, link love from last week, and this week’s Menu Plan Monday!
It’s a happy start to the week in my house! Passover ended Saturday night and we celebrated with a delicious pasta-filled Italian dinner with friends. Yesterday was the first really nice spring day and we spent it outside with the kids walking along wooded trails in a conservancy along the Long Island Sound in Rye and playing with friends at the playground. Last night Sabrina finally stayed in her bed the whole night for the first time in about three weeks, which meant mommy got a good night’s sleep! And last but not least, the kids are back at school and to their regular routine! Hooray!
I hope you’re week is off to a good start as well. If you have some time, check out some of these fabulous posts and recipes I came across last week. Then get some dinner inspiration with my weekly menu plan below!

Sounds like lots of wonderful happenings…your Passover celebration….beautiful weather + a walk outside…getting sleep!!! That’s the best part 🙂 My house will be a little quieter this week, because my son is off to 6th grade camp, so it’s just my husband, my daughter, and myself. I’ll definitely miss my son, but not the sibling squabbles. Love your link-definitely want to check out the Sound Bites interview w/ Brian Wansink-love his work! Have a wonderful week 🙂
Thanks EA! Enjoy the week without the squabbles!! I can’t wait for my kids to be old enough for sleepaway camp!! Have a great week!
