My Pinterest Menu: Week of May 5th

We're going to kick off the week with Carne Asada Tacos to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.  Feel free to toss in a couple margaritas too : )  I love that all the recipes this week look super simple to make, but I love all the color even more!  It's easy to get excited about dinner when it looks so good! 

Some favorites from last week were the Spring Chopped Salad and the Garlic-Yogurt Baked Chicken.

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