Menu Plan Monday- April 5, 2010

Spring has finally arrived in full bloom at my home.  We had a beautiful weekend with lots of sunshine.  I made sure to get my 15-20 minutes a day from 11:00am-2:00pm to soak up that Vitamin D.  Man does that feel great!

Yesterday we celebrated Easter and my husband’s birthday.  We have a lot to be thankful for and it was great to take time to remember that.  I asked him what he wanted for this next year of his life and his answer was simple, to be happy and healthy as well as the members of his family.  How I love that man.

I hope you had a great weekend too.  I’m looking forward to this week to hopefully more sunshine and a detailed report from my dear friend Lady A who just got back from Napa Valley.  She was able to have a meal at the French Laundry (Thomas Kelller) and Bottega (Michael Chiarello) and I can’t wait to hear all about it.  I hope she took pictures.  Maybe she’ll share.

Don’t forget to go back and check on the Great Gluten Free Pasta Challenge.  Let me know how yours turned out.  I think I’ll give it a go this week on Saturday. Quinoa pasta will be my back up plan.  Also, this week’s Secret Ingredient for Friday Foodie Fix is Coconut Milk.  I hope you’ll join us.
