I hope everyone has enjoyed their holiday weekend. Mine has been spent with my husband watching the Cubs/Padres baseball game, cooking, eating good food and relaxing at the beach.  Yesterday, I made us a special brunch for us while we listed to the Indy 500, “the greatest spectacle in racing.” It consisted of fresh, organic berries, pizza fritata from the 21 Day Sugar Detox Cookbook, and mimosas made with homemade orange juice. It was so nice to sit outside and enjoy our brunch. I think brunch is my absolute favorite meal.  I love going out for brunch or making one at home, both are enjoyable.

This week you will notice a few repeat menu items. I wanted to keep it simple since it is a short holiday week. I am really excited to try the almond crusted zucchini chips. I think they sound very interesting and I am always looking for new ways to eat vegetables. We can never have too many vegetables!

Here is the Word version of the menu and grocery list Weekly Dinner Menu – Week 12.

I hope you all have a safe Memorial Day! Thank you to all of the past, current and future people who serve our country. Enjoy your day!
