Menu Plan Monday: Week of March 16, 2015

March 16, 2015

This week’s Menu Plan Monday and highlights from last week! 

Recipes featured in this week's Menu Plan Monday: butternut squash quinoa, Spicy Asian Meatballs, panko chicken, Moroccan chicken

At this time last week, I was sitting by a pool in Punta Cana, watching my little girls swim, enjoying the sun shining, and the luxurious feeling of warmth on my skin. That’s why you didn’t find a Menu Plan Monday last week, or any other posts for that matter! But now I’m back and so is my weekly menu and a some of my favorite recipes and articles I came across while I was away.

In case you missed my most recent recipe post, check out my Butternut Sage Risotto Balls with Lemon Honey Drizzle – my entry into the Recipe ReDux and USA Rice Federation sponsored contest. I’m so grateful for all the love I received for this recipe while I was away!
