My Pinterest Menu: Week of March 24th

I was feeling like moving to more of a Spring inspired menu this week...until yesterday.  Winter seems to be determined to stick around a little longer, so instead of fighting it, I'm going to go with it.  I am cooking up some of the more comforting foods I have on Pinterest this week.  I am really excited about the Autumn Arugula Salad.  Maybe a little too excited : )

Some hits from last week were the Bangers and Colcannon with Guinness Onion Gravy and the Honey Lime Tequila Shrimp Tacos. Both were super good!

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