Menu Plan Monday – March 26

My big highlight from this past week was not directly food related, but certainly indirectly so! I attended the Georgia Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly the Georgia Dietetic Association) Annual Conference in Athens. Liz Weiss, one of the Meal Makeover Moms, was speaking about social media. I have met Liz on a number of occasions, and of course, if […]
