January 13: Creamy Gnocchi, Butternut Squash and Spinach
If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you may have seen some of this dish in the making last night! The recipe is by +Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice, and I found it through +Yummly .
Although it put my cooking stills to the test, I considered it a success. It smelled great, it looked great... it was definitely a thumbs-up from me. And surprisingly, Ben gave it a thumbs-up, too (he tends to be a Meatless Monday Grouch)! The kids were mostly just fans of the Gnocchi (oh, and the cheese of course), but I think the sage may have been a little strong for them (although it doesn't help that R dumped in ALL of the sage I cut up after I told her to add "a sprinkle").
But overall, a success. The only thing that would have made it better would be a nice loaf of crusty french bread to dip in the sauce! But alas, I'm only allowing those in the house once a week these days, and we just had French Onion Soup the other night ;). Here's an Insta-Review:

On a side note, I've decided that instead of posting about the previous meal EVERY Tuesday, I'm going to do a Meatless Monday Roundup on the last Tuesday of each month instead. I think I'll be able to organize my thoughts better that way (and that it'll be more useful to other families looking for +Meatless Monday ideas.
