February Menus

This week our menus include some "quickie meals" like Tortilla Soup (out of the freezer) and Crockpot Chicken Burritos as well as Greek Chicken Salad for busy nights after Track practice. We also have some entertaining to do for my father-in-law's birthday on Friday night. We decided to save some moolah this year and go out for a Valentine brunch and then eat a peaceful dinner at home with the family on Valentine's Eve.

I love February! It's the chance to try out new comfort foods with a healthy twist. It's also a great month to entertain. Between the Super Bowl and Valentine's Day, you can get out your best appetizer and dessert recipes and have a party! This week, we're making use of some fresh local produce (like purple cauliflower my daughter picked out at the market!) and fresh baby greens. We've even seen some fat, red strawberries coming over from the Coast so we're all over the chocolate-covered strawberries for a Lover's Day preview.
