Menu Plan Monday - Happy Leap Day!

Happy Leap Day!
Are you doing anything special to celebrate? I think I will be using my extra day to have extra coffee, do extra laundry, and catch up on extra school work! :D I hope your plans are better than mine! Haha.
I am also using this day to be extra happy that I have one more day to stay the age I am now. (Which I'm not telling, by the way!) If it weren't Leap Day today, it would be my birthday! :D I guess I'll just have to wait until tomorrow...
Speaking of my's in March. (Obviously) The month of St. Patrick's Day, and all things green and Irish! A little fun fact about me - my heritage is Irish! How perfect that I was born in this month. This year, I am really trying to embrace my heritage. I decided that instead of making an Irish meal just on St. Patrick's Day, I will make them throughout the month. I recently shared on Instagram and Facebook that I got this cookbook in the mail last week, just in time! It has been sitting on my Amazon wish list for a year now! I was super excited to finally get it. And looking through the recipes made me even more excited. I will be trying one (supper) recipe out each week, on Thursdays. I am also planning on making the baked goods and breakfast meals throughout the month. I can't wait!
We had a crazy dinner week last week, so you may see some repeats from last week that we didn't get to.  Thankfully all the ingredients are frozen! :)
