Meal Planning Monday #175

Meal Planning Monday

It’s the first day of spring!

I don’t know why…but I’m more excited about spring this year than usual.  I have already been working on my garden, I’ve ordered me a swimsuit or two and I have my summer plans all lined up.  Bring on the warm weather and lighter fare…I’m ready!

As much as I love the hearty recipes of fall and winter (I mean…it’s the best, right?!), I always look forward to the fresh and light food of spring and summer too.  In honor of the first day of the season, a spring menu for your week.  Happy Monday!

Salmon with Avocado Chive Mash

Mmmmmmm…my Salmon with Avocado Chive Mash is really good.  And simple too!

Lemon Risotto with Pancetta & Peas

Do you make risotto at home?  You should! It is so easy!!!  My Lemon Risotto with Pancetta and Peas is the perfect recipe to kick off your spring week!

Sweet & Sour Grilled Chicken Tacos

My Sweet & Sour Grilled Chicken Tacos are a fun twist on a traditional supper.

Roasted Garlic & Shrimp Spaghetti

Instead of a heavy meat sauce, try my Roasted Garlic & Shrimp Spaghetti for your pasta night!  My kids favorite meals are when I combine noodles and shrimp 🙂 .

Chipotle Crab Cake Sliders

And round out your week with my Chipotle Crab Cake Sliders.

Hummingbird Bundt Cake

Do you know what a Hummingbird Cake is?  In the South, it’s a staple in the spring.  You will not find a more moist cake than this.  Promise.

Dutch Baby

And a light little breakfast for your spring morning?  My Dutch Baby Pancake.  There is just a tiny bit of lemon in there that takes this easy dessert to a extra yummy level.

That wraps up Meal Planning Monday.  See you tomorrow!

    I’m so thrilled for spring, too! 🙂 Love this week’s menu! My husband would be in heaven if I made the salmon with avocado chive mash!

    Do you think the salmon would be good with guacamole too? I just used my avocados to make some! I’ve never thought to combine the two, but you have me thinking it might work!

    Salmon all the way! The quinoa salad also sounds amazing – can’t wait to get back into salads for the warmer weather.
