Menu Plan Monday: Week of May 5, 2014

Last week’s menu was a winner with the whole family. My kids couldn’t get enough of the fish tacos – they didn’t even ask for fruit after dinner that night! The herbed lemon chicken was super easy to make, light, and flavorful. And my lightened up mac n cheese was such a hit there were no leftovers! (Look out for the recipe soon.)

Yesterday we hosted a family brunch, which was loads of fun. Thankfully we had great weather and all the kids could play outside – the perfect balance for all the decadent brunch food we enjoyed. Here are a couple of pictures that may whet your appetite!
