REMINDER: Lil Daisies Bloom Away (Giveway) ends March 1st: Monday night at 11:59 PM! So get in your entries. The winner will be revealed on Tuesday. Be sure to share with your friends! There will be more REALLY fun giveaways later this month! I am REALLY excited to share these giveaways with you. Love, love, love!
Funny thing is that in the course of planning my menu this week, I realized that I was "ordering" up quite the array of international dishes! So, I decided to continue with the rest of my days in the week following suit -- we are eating internationally this week!
Which reminds me of THIS BLOG -- where Erin goes once a week on a culinary adventure with her family to places all over the world. I am hoping to try this in the next few months. I love the idea -- of trying new culinary dishes, but also experiencing the different foods and learning about the culture behind the bite!
I hope to share with you my MENU PLAN this week... I shared a little bit about it previously. I hope to share a bit more! AND of course, I have a new surprise meal planning idea that Lil Daisies is currently in the process of creating -- we will be starting this next week! So, look forward to that!
Okay my friends ~ Here is what Lil Daisies crew will be indulging our tastebuds this week! Lots of links!
