    Thanks for sharing your menu for this week! Hope you all enjoy your movie night at school! I am wondering how the Lentil Rice Bowls are, have you made them before? We are going to have to be cutting back sodium and eating a bit more healthy, so I’m looking for some new healthy recipes to try!
    My menu plan is posted and can be found here:
    Thanks again for sharing, I love getting new ideas!

      We have tried the lentil rice bowls, the recipe is on the site, my family loved them, we made them without chicken and everyone was super happy with our veggie dinner :).

    • movie night is wreck it ralph 2 – should be fun! 🙂 the lentil rice bowls are AWESOME, my new favorite dinner with really good leftovers. it’s also a super customizable recipe, flexible for whatever you have on hand. the tahini-lime dressing is really easy to make and so delish. it’s my own recipe inspired by a restaurant I love…I think you’ll love it!

    • oh, and vicki, so glad you and your family like the bowls!! 🙂
