Finally, a beautiful Sunday to start the week. I hope that means winter’s grasp on us is loosening a bit. After getting another foot of snow  last week, I’m so ready for spring.

I am currently reading the Weelicious: 140 Fast, Fresh, and Easy Recipes cookbook, courtesy of our local library. Anyone else get cookbooks out of the library? It’s a great way to test drive some new ones to see if they work well with your style of cooking.  I know I have a good one if I add a ton of post it notes while reading, or I try to renew it. My friend Christy has a good rule: If you try to renew it at least three times, then it’s probably worth investing in.

Here is the menu for the week ahead…

Monday Meal Plan March

Sunday~ Turkey Sausage and Spinach Lasagna. This was a hearty Sunday dinner, although not a favorite with the kids. I would make it again and just save some sausage crumbles and raw spinach for the kid’s dinner next time.

Monday~ BBQ Chicken in the slow cooker. Make BBQ sandwiches with corn on the side.

Tuesday~ CORN (Clean Out Refrigerator Night)…Mom’s going out!

Wednesday~ It’s my birthday so I’m going with one of my favorites, Taco night! This will be a make your own creation with some rice and beans on the side. My in-laws arrive for a visit so it will be a festive night. Now…which cake to buy?

Thursday~ Turkey Pesto Meatballs from the Weelicious cookbook. I found some of our homemade basil pesto from the end of the summer tucked away in our deep freezer. I’m happy to use it up in this new recipe. Linguine on the side, plus a salad.

Friday~ Pizza night! I finally found a good pizza dough recipe for the break maker.
