Week 427 Weekly Menu

Hello! I have kind of a crazy week coming up. I’m off to LA for a couple days to hang out with Larry King (more on that later!), and then Nate is out of town for work, and then we’re driving 12 hours to visit family. I hope we survive the craziness! As a result my menu is a little strange this week. All the more reason for you guys to post your menus and inspire one another!
