Spring Meal Plan to say GOODBYE to Winter

I am SO DONE with winter. I don’t even live in a bad enough climate to feel at all justified in feeling this way, yet every year I do. I’m going with it. 

You can’t control your feelings, and I guess I’m justified in being irritated at the 40° misty rainy gray just as much as the Minnesotan inside me used to be so filled with hate over the negative temperatures and feet of snow. 

WINTER JUST SUCKS, pretty much everywhere. 

Except for Florida. Everything is good in Flordia in the winter. I’m sure of it. 

These meal plans will have you wishing even harder for spring. It’ll be here before we know it, so might as well start drooling now!

Easy Spring Recipes

Some meals are to be made in memory of the thing formerly known as sunshine, and some need to be reserved for actual warm weather to roll around. 

If the snow is melted where you are at, fire up the grill and make one of these spring recipes that you can sink your teeth into.
