I hope you had a fantabulous Monday. I didn’t have the luxury of having this Columbus Day off but I got a lot done after work, including grocery shopping and laundry (wash, fold, and put away). With groceries in place for the week here is this week’s meal plan. The featured item this week is butternut squash. I love butternut squash, it has a sweetness to it like yams and can be cooked in a variety of ways.
Checkout the meals and make tweaks to suit your palate, just keep it healthy and meaningful.
