Spinach with Pinenuts and RaisinsDisclaimer: I’m bearing down on a recipe testing deadline and we are eating leftovers from the recipe testing among other things.

So if anyone were to ask me what is the biggest challenge of blogging I’d say it’s writing regular posts in the midst of all the other stuff life throws our way.

Monday- Smoky Black Beans, Brown Rice, Spinach Salad, Portobello Mushroom Pizzas

Tuesday- Italian Sausage Subs with Peppers and Onions, Arugula Salad with Figs and Walnuts 

Wednesday – Leftover Chili Con Carne, Spinach with Pinenuts and Raisins, Tuna and Cannellini Bean Salad

Thursday – Turkey Meatballs, Spicy Tomato Basil Sauce, Broccoli

Friday – out to dinner and a movie with my children
