Week 184 Menu

Yesterday was a sad day. We had to pack up and leave the Cape. Total bummer. The week was fantastic and included this fresh corn on the cob and spicy grilled chicken wings (recipes to come if I can wrangle them from my soon-to-be brother-in-law). 

This week is going to be nutso banana pants CRAZY. I’m driving alone with the girls to New Jersey. Then the Avery SocialLuxe Lounge (which I am co-hosting) is finally happening on Thursday. And THEN I have BlogHer ’10.  It’s going to be a pretty amazing weekend…including a small private party with Nate Berkus. CAN’T WAIT.

Enough rambling, here’s my “menu.” Ha! Some menu. Please please pleae share your menu for the week so people can actually get some decent ideas on here! 🙂

– On the road

– At my parents’ in NJ…I think we should just have lots of fresh corn on the cob for dinner

– Stuffing swag bags for SocialLuxe in NYC

SOCIALLUXE!!! I selected the menu for the party. I can’t remember what I picked, I just know it sounded fancy and fab!

– There are about a billion parties for BlogHer that night. Who the heck knows what I’ll be eating?

– Early in the day it’s my nephew’s 1st birthday party! There’s no cake like 1st birthday cake! That night I’ll be hangin’ with Mr. Berkus. Yea!

– Last night on the East Coast! Dinner with my family.

    That leaves my husband and I ALONE for a whole entire week. What to do?!

    I just found out that Hubby has to travel for business most of this week, so who knows if the menu will go as planned, but here is the plan:

    Monday- Grilled Cheese
    Tuesday- Quesadillas
    Wednesday- Out
    Thursday- Panzanella
    Friday- Homemade Pizza
    Saturday- Out
    Sunday- High School Girlfriends Reunion

  19. 19

    Monday – spaghetti with two sauces; marinara or eggplant and tomato sauce. The big batch of eggplant and tomato sauce will be frozen for later; the marinara comes from the tomato sauce thickening on the stove right now! So a lot of cooking, but some of it for the winter. Meatballs too – turkey ones, the sous chef is going to help with these.
    Tuesday – Crock pot meal. Either minestrone or a Mexican soup using our fresh tomatoes, some corn and our hot peppers.
    Wednesday – stir-fry with chicken, rice and whatever vegetables are still in the refrigerator
    Thursday – leftovers or meatball subs with fresh veggies
    Friday – picnic at the park – we aren’t sure of the menu yet but some caprese salad, babaganush, pitas, and cucumbers will probably make the cut.
    Saturday – pizza on the grill, salad and a movie
    Sunday – Breakfast; scrambled eggs with chorizo, fruit, tortillas and salsa

  20. Monday – salmon on the grill, roasted potatoes and broccoli

    Tuesday – Big salad with hard boiled eggs and crusty bread
    Left-over pasta and salad for Sam

    Wednesday – Chicken breasts on the grill, zucchini w/onions and German potato salad

    Thursday – Breakfast for Supper: multi grain pancakes (All You pg 115) and fruit
