So, I realize it’s a tad late for Menus on Mondays. The ironic thing is I actually was proud of myself for posting this on Sunday! Turns out, I forgot to hit the publish button and voila! Post disappeared. It wasn’t the wine. Or was it?
Honestly, the meals we’ve got planned out for this week go great with a glass of wine, until we get to the weekend fiesta. Then, you better have a beer-garita in hand! But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves I clearly need a glass of wine right about now… it’s 6 o’clock on a Tuesday evening. Nothing says “glass of wine” like food hot off the grill, a beautiful day, and two screaming tots!
