    • ooooo…pasta with boursin sounds like a great idea!

    • Yes! Congratulations on the upcoming baby! I meant to comment on your menu a couple weeks ago about stopping menu planning after your baby is born. I didn’t START menu planning until my 1st was born. It was a LIFE SAVER. The menus may not be fancy for a season, but you’ll thank yourself later. Time is precious, and if you plan ahead, you enjoy a little more of it. 🙂
