Week 429 Menu

Well, we just pulled into the driveway and I’m exhausted! But it was a great Spring Break that included visiting three national parks (Joshua Tree, Bryce Canyon and Zion), driving over 1,600 miles, seeing lots of family, lunching with four fabulous food bloggers (Kalyn, Barbara, Letty and Karen), breaking into a mobster’s office to find gold, and so much more! Planning this week’s menu is my first foray back into “real” life.
