April 20, 2015

Trials and tribulations in the kitchen, link love, and this week’s Menu Plan Monday filled with recipe testing meals!

I could barely get out of bed this morning thanks to two three-year olds laying on top of me after crawling into my bed at 3 am and 5 am and a gloomy rainy day that left me drenched after dropping off the kids at school. Quite the change from the beautiful weather we had this past weekend.

On Saturday we took the kids to see a production of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, followed by lunch, a walk in the park, and our fist ice cream of the season!

First ice cream of the season!

Sunday was spent in NJ with family celebrating the birth of a new baby girl cousin. The kids had so much fun ogling the baby and playing with the other kids.

In case you missed it, be sure to check out my post from Saturday with the trials and tribulations I entailed with a spiralizer and my recipe for Thai Citrus Salad.

Don’t forget to see what else you may have missed last week with my Link Love below and this week’s Menu Plan Monday, which includes a bunch of recipes I’m testing for future posts!

Have a great week!

  1. I’m definitely making the mac n’ cheese primavera!! I’m on a spring veggie kick and I know my guys would love if I mixed them with pasta and cheese 🙂 wish I was enjoying that ice cream like your sweet girls!

  2. Thanks for including the MMM podcast and post in your post! It was fun having Bonnie Taub Dix on the show to put the dietary guidelines recs into perspective. Love The Very Hungry Caterpillar. It was my boys’ favorite book when they were wee ones!
