Meal Plan Monday

I'm a little late getting my meal plan for the week posted.  I don't know about you, but Daylight Savings time really messes up my little family.  The kids take a few days to adjust and last night was rough...  I guess the hour and a half nap on the way home from visiting Grandma and Papa for the weekend didn't help matters either.  But needless to say,  we were all in bed and asleep by midnight :(  I could have done with another hour or so, but maybe tonight will be better...

I'm excited for this week's plan.  I am feeling the need to cook on the grill, to keep things fresh and I'm seeing my menus transforming from Winter foods to Spring/Summer foods.  I LOVE to see that change.  It makes it even more real that Spring is really on the way after a long, long Utah Winter.

(yes, this one is a fall dish, but I've got one lonely butternut squash in my pantry that keeps calling to me)
