a traveling Wife: Spicing Things Up - Weekly Meals

Spicing Things Up - Weekly Meals

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

This week I decided to spice things up a little - in the kitchen.
Not the bedroom. Or maybe the bedroom. You decide.

I decided to throw three new meals into the meal plan for this week. 
I am hoping they all turn out well but if only one is a failure then I am happy too.
