A Turk, an Italian, and an Indian walk into a…

A Turk, an Italian, and an Indian walk into a… Just kidding. But these nationalities do have something in common. A dish from each was featured on our dinner plate! We had tabouli, baked cannellini beans in tomatoes, and baked samosas. Oh, and I gave those sweet potato and millet muffins a trial run. Success! […]

I thought meal planning was for moms…
