My Pinterest Menu: Week of April 7th

I am crazy excited about this week's menu!  Looking on it now, I am amazed by all the color. I'm going to blame it on the fact that Spring is finally here, because everything in my life lately has been all about color. Obviously, the food is no different : )

When I saw the recipes for the Beef Burgers with Bacon Jam and Gorgonzola, I think my mouth hit the floor. I chose Wednesday for this meal for a reason.  Jason's birthday is Wednesday, and I think he is going to LOVE this meal!  I'm also excited about the 5 ingredient Easy White Chicken Chili.  Sometimes, I need easy and Tuesday is looking very busy already, so I don't want an excuse to eat out.  Easy recipes are what I need on the busiest of days, and this one looks SUPER good.  So without further ado...

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