Week 88 Menu

EmailPinterest0Facebook0Twitter0Google+0StumbleUpon0

We were invited to dinner this evening at someone’s home and had an amazing meal. This couple is way into food and cooking. They served a delicious vegetable soup, olive polenta with mushrooms, GOAT (yes, you heard me, goat) with veggies we’ve never eaten before, and a very fancy french dessert. Seriously, this meal was amazing. They plated all of the food, so it was beautiful, and it was fun to try completely new foods. I can promise you tonight’s menu will never show up on my weekly plan, but we so appreciated it. Thanks, Sheryl & Jason!

Sadly I did not have my camera with me. So, close your eyes and just imagine what dinner would have been like. Isn’t it lovely?

Sheryl & Jason participate in a fruit/veggie CSA (community-supported agriculture) and a meat CSA. Their way of cooking is pretty much opposite of mine – they don’t know what food they’re going to get each week and then they just figure out what to cook as they go along. It’s quite impressive and definitely a fresh, healthy way to eat.

I am WORDY tonight. Sorry! One last thing…I didn’t cook dinner ONCE last week. It was a FANTASTIC birthday week. :) So, lots of carry-overs…but this week I’m back in the game.

MONDAY:
- Stir fry
- Rice
- Pick up a few sides from our local Chinese restaurant

TUESDAY:
- Natalee’s Butternut Squash Soup…gotta try this recipe out! (It’s posted in the comments here, if you’re interested)

WEDNESDAY:
- Fajitas

THURSDAY:
- Leftovers

FRIDAY:
- Pizza

SATURDAY:
- Eat out

SUNDAY:
- Spinach & Pancetta Stuffed Shells w/Asiago Cream Sauce
- Garlic Bread
- Salad

Can’t wait to see what you’re eating for dinner this week! As always, thank you for sharing your menus!
