Labor Day has past and now it’s back to reality with this week’s Menu Plan Monday and Link Love!
Happy September everyone! I know I’m a few days late, but now that Labor Day is over, I’ve returned from Italy, and my kids start school this week, it’s officially the end of summer. When I got off the plane in NY on Sunday evening, the first thing that popped into my head was that song “Back to life, back to reality…” – you know the song I’m humming, right?!
Anyway, back to reality it is and as I am working hard to catch up on emails and all the interesting articles and delicious recipes I missed last week, I’m back with this week’s Menu Plan Monday (even though it’s Tuesday) and some links I managed to catch while I was away. Stay tuned later this week for an awesome back-to-school roundup filled with articles, recipes, and more that I have pulled together from all around the web. In the meantime, I’ll leave you with a picture of our view from our hotel room in Rapallo, Italy along the Italian Riviera. It was definitely a sight to be seen!
