My Pinterest Menu: Week of March 10th

To be perfectly honest, there are weeks that it is hard to cook a meal every night, and last week was definitely one of those weeks.  I was struggling to fit it all in...and I actually didn't.  I have one more recipe to make up from this past week. Maybe, next weekend...

I was hoping that this week would be a little calmer, but I am going to be traveling the last half of the week. Keeping that in mind, I deliberately made the menu, so I could prepare a couple things in advance, and Jason can assemble it/heat it up for dinner while I am gone.  And yes...loaded nachos is a perfect meal for an awesome daddy and his girls! We'll see how this works out when I get back on Sunday : ) 

Here is this week's menu...Enjoy : )
