This week’s Menu Plan Monday plus eating right for your sight, words not to use when talking about food, french toast cups, and recipes with strawberries!
Happy Monday everyone! It’s chilly and rainy here today, but yesterday felt like SUMMER! It was hot, hot, hot, so we broke out the sprinkler and the girls had a blast running through the cold water. Plus we unexpectedly had the first barbecue of the season at a friend’s house last night!
This week I’m taking it pretty easy in the kitchen starting on Wednesday because I’ll be prepping for our big Memorial Day Weekend BBQ, which will include lots of goodies like Soy Marinated Flank Steak, Coconut-Lime Chicken, Sweet Potato Salad, some cocktails, and homemade ice cream sandwiches. I haven’t finalized the menu yet, but there’s a sneak peek! Check back over the next few days as we’ll be sharing a few posts highlighting how to keep the holiday weekend nutritious and delicious!
As usual, below you’ll find some of my favorite links from last week + this week’s Menu Plan Monday. And in the spirit of Memorial Day, tell me:
