Fun Spring & Easter Food Ideas plus Menu Plan

I didn’t get a full meal plan written up this week because we’ll be visiting with family for the holiday weekend and I’m not really sure what I’ll be making (I usually just bring some sort of side or dessert). But here are a few of the things that were on our menu this week:

Simple Fish Tacos (recipe to come)
Maple Garlic Pork Tenderloin with wild rice pilaf and garden salad
Chili (from freezer meal exchange), mini-cornbread muffins, garden salad
Homemade spaghetti sauce with whole grain pasta, garden salad

Now, Easter is right around the corner. Whether you’re celebrating or not, I’ve collected some fun ideas for any spring gathering you’re having this season. Who says bunnies are only for Easter?
