Spring is in full force here in Colorado. Trees are starting to get leaves again, tulips are blooming, and I’ve got an itch to start planning my garden for next month. I look forward to being able to grow my own vegetables and herbs every year. It’s so much more convenient to go out in the backyard and pick them instead of having to drive to the store, not to mention they taste about 100 times better! Do any of you have a garden, if so what are your favorite things to plant? On top of everything starting to feel like spring around here there are also some spring inspired meals in this week’s Healthy Weekly Meal Plan #37. So light up the grill, grab some of those spring vegetables and get cooking!
Be sure to stop back every Saturday for your weekly fix of daily entrees as well as a breakfast, lunch, snack and dessert! Just click on the photo or link to see the recipe.
