Spring can be a busy time but with a little planning, you can easily prepare a week of budget-friendly and family-friendly meals and even have tasty leftovers for lunch. To find out how, just follow along: MONDAY: Veggie Monday Have breakfast for dinner by making a frittata loaded with sautéed spinach, asparagus and onions plus crumbled organic goat cheese. Serve with whole-grain toast. TUESDAY: Fast Fat Tuesday Warm a few cans of red beans with Cajun/Creole seasoning (and cooked sausage, optional) to ladle over heat-and-serve frozen brown rice, with 365 Everyday Value® frozen greens sautéed with garlic. Remember the hot sauce! WEDNESDAY: Street Food Savvy Enjoy traditional Greek flavors in Gyro-Style Lamb with Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce over Quinoa. Halve the recipe or pack the leftovers in lunches. THURSDAY: Simple Skillet Dinner Use tempeh, ground turkey or ground grass-fed beef in one of the quick-and-easy Simple Skillet Dinners for four. FRIDAY: Fish Friday Fix this Easy Matzo-Crusted Salmon with a side dish of shredded kale — raw or steamed — tossed with extra-virgin olive oil and lemon juice. WEEKEND: Organic Feast Roast a whole chicken with herbs and root vegetables; serve with a whole grain side and green salad. Finish with ice cream or cookies. Yes, all of these are available organic!

The web site highlights dips, providing the names as a disappearing overlay on each picture. The recipes for them are not obtainable. I entered the name as listed on the overlay, but search yielded nothing. I clicked on everything that resembled a portal, but couldn't get the recipes for the dips. What am I overlooking? If they're available as an email, would you send me the highlighted dips on this week's post, please?

Could you please build a store in the city of Spanish Lake, MO 63138? If you do please make it larger than the one in Richmond Heights, MO Gallaria. Thank you. I know you won't but it makes me feel better that at least I asked.

I purchased the fresh Salmon filets from WF Tampa about 1 week ago. I baked them using shredded coconut, ground walnuts from 365* and the lightest bit of fresh olive oil to help keeps the toppings stuck to it while baking. Well, it was amazing! We have purchased our seafood primarily from Publix before being staioned at MacDill. I never really cared much for fish BUT WF Tampa has given me some really great instruction and your seafood staff is so knowledgable that I even adventure on my own now. Who knew I could be such a fish foodie... Thanks WF Tampa!
