Week 150 Menu

Oh my goodness. The site has been down for TWO DAYS. I have gotten a menu up every Sunday since I started the blog, even when I was stuck in the middle of nowhere in a snowstorm. I thought this would be my first miss…but with 6 minutes to spare on this Sunday night the site is back. My menu will go up! YIPPEEEE!!!!

The reason it took two days for me to figure out the site was down was because we took a weekend trip to Monterey (that’s right, I didn’t go on the computer for TWO WHOLE DAYS). It was such a fun weekend! Today for lunch we discovered Vivolo’s Chowder House. The clam chowder was SO delicious. Here are the reasons why. 1) It was thick, but not too thick. 2) I didn’t notice potatoes (yes, that’s a good thing). 3) The clams were oh so good, and I only crunched 2 or 3 grains of sand, which is the perfect amount…enough that you know the clams are fresh, but not so much you break a tooth.

On to the menu that almost wasn’t!

– Paninis (no we haven’t eaten paninis for 4 weeks in a row…we just haven’t had them yet!)

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Creamy Enchiladas

– Leftovers

– Hamburgers

– Eat out

– Dinner at friends’ house

Please share your lovely menus…now matter how lovely or un-lovely you think they are! 🙂

    Great ideas here. I’ve been slacking on my menu. I’ve got the December menu prepared, but we’ve been literally “winging” it. We’re in the midst of finishing a ton of remodeling projects on our house to hopefully sell and get into something a wee bit bigger.

    This week will like end up something like this:

    Sun: Leftover pizza
    Mon: Roasted chicken w/ Brussels sprouts
    Tue: Jambalaya
    Wed: Chili Verde
    Thu: Chicken fajitas
    Fri: Pizza & hot wings (homemade of course)
    Sat: Homemade butternut squash ravioli & Cesar salad
