What I’ve been up to lately, plus lots of link love, recipe love, and a Nutritioulicious menu plan for the week!
Hi everyone! So happy to be back with a delicious menu for the week ahead and some fabulous article and recipe links from the past two weeks. Hope you didn’t miss me too much last week!
This August has been busier than ever. Last week I was in beautiful Bar Harbor, Maine on an amazing trip sponsored by the Wild Blueberry Association! I learned so much about how Wild Blueberries grow and are harvested and packaged for the freezer aisle. Stay tuned for a follow-up post sharing all that fabulous information.
The other big thing going on right now is back to school time! In my last Menu Plan Monday post, I shared a clip from one of my back to school SMTs and that same week I did another one here in New York City! I shared some great tips for grocery shopping and meal planning to help families feel less overwhelmed and more organized during this hectic time of year. Head on over to Fox Las Vegas to see one of the 25 interviews I did that morning!
Although my kids don’t start school for another couple of weeks, in the spirit of back to school, this month’s theme for The Recipe ReDux is about getting dinner on the table for the whole family during the hustle and bustle of school schedules. In case you missed my post and social shares Saturday, be sure to check out my Pistachio-Stuffed Chicken Breasts recipe and all the other ReDuxer recipes at the end of that post!
Now, onto some awesome links from the past couple of weeks and this week’s menu plan! Have a great week!
