I’m back home this week and trying to get back into the swing of things. Of course when we got home we had things in our fridge like 1 green bell pepper, a jar of olives, half a carton of half and half, and a little almond milk. Instacart to the rescue!

If you haven’t heard me dote on this service yet, well, it might be the best thing that’s happened to me. I spent a few minutes the night we got home “grocery shopping” in my pj’s and then groceries magically showed up the next morning!

My only regret with my menu planning this week is that it’s not including THIS amazing pasta salad that I made before we left on our trip. I absolutely love the little bits of orzo all coated in a tangy greekish italianish homemade dressing and mixed up with crunchy bits of fresh veggies.

If you’re looking for a fun way to spice up your easter lunch this Sunday, I think this recipe would be a great idea!
