Monday Meal Planning - St. Patty's Day week

This weeks meal planning is brought to you by lots and lots of coffee and Zaditor! Holy hell, my eyes are itchy.
Tonight's meal was actually made yesterday and so it's leftover for tonight. I switched up the recipe based on what we got at Tarry Market yesterday. (See my notes) We're having our St. Patty's day meal on Wednesday instead of on Thursday and having the leftovers the next night. Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday's recipes are new for us! I'm excited to try them out. And on Friday I'll make some sort of pizza. This week we had, mozzarella, goat cheese, fig jam and prosciutto, topped with arugula dressed w/ balsamic vinaigrette. So good!
