Weekly Meal Plan: Quick and Easy Recipes

I’m going to be honest: I’m not cooking this week’s meal plan.  When this post “goes live,” I hope to be sitting under the warm Belize sun drinking some sort of very-alcoholic beverage.  But… if I were to be State-side in my kitchen after a very long day of working and taking care of kids, I’d definitely plan on making each and every one of these quick and easy recipes included in this week’s meal plan.  Not that that is much consolation for you, but, at least I’m trying to help! :)

I’ve got a full schedule of great blog posts for the week, so stay check back with us on MomFavorites.com throughout the week.  This momma needed a little mommy-break and some much needed alone time with her husband.  I can’t wait to come back and tell you all about my travels… I hope to avoid the bot flies {warning: high gross-ness factor} and sharks of “Shark Alley,” but instead bring back a little inspiration for Latin American cooking for a future weekly meal plan!

Have a great week,
