Menu Plan Monday: Let the Madness Begin!

Welcome to the start of one of the best weeks of the year!  March Madness!

Is your bracket filled out?  Do your follow bracketology?  Who have you picked to win the tourney?

Our house will be full of basketball fanatics beginning Monday morning...lasting the entire week!  Bring it on!  12+ hours a day of basketball is like pure heaven to me (plus two vacation days).

This year's menu revolves around international cuisine and gives me the opportunity to spoil the people I love through food (another way of saying that we are not following any light, low fat recipes this week).

If you need other menu ideas this week, remember to check out Laura's organizing site for more ideas.
