Menu Plan Monday

Hello gorgeous people!  How are you all?  I am leaving on a jet plane tomorrow for a week long vacation with my hubby on the island of Maui.  Eighteen years ago we were married there and haven’t been back since.  So excited to now have the opportunity thanks to my parents who have come to watch the kiddos.

    Have a great day!

    Hi Laura,

    Thank you for featuring my Avocado, Tomato & Cheese-Topped Chicken — I’m so glad you like it. This week my menu plan is full of colorful dishes, starting off with RED sauce on the boneless pork loin chops.

    Have a wonderful anniversary trip!
