Hello! How’s everybody’s week going? Ours has been uneventful so far but that’s just fine with me. We have a lot going on in the next couple weeks with X-man’s 6th birthday approaching, the beginning of baseball season, and another catering gig. This is sort of the calm before the storm!
On to this week’s menu. . .
Monday: Grilled Salmon/grilled asparagus/scallion-lime couscous
Tuesday: Turkey Pot Pie & salad
I used up turkey that’s been stored away in the freezer since we deep fried it on Christmas Eve, and it was magnificent! That’s a picture of the pretty pot pie above. Laddie prefers a darker crust, so I broil it for a couple minutes at the very end to give it that deep color. I’ll share the recipe with you later this week (hopefully!).
We have a birthday party at the park after school tomorrow, so I think leftovers will be all I have energy for at the end of the day.
Thursday: Chicken Pad Thai/edamame/mandarin oranges
Friday: Cheese Tortellini w/ vodka sauce/salad/garlic-parmesan bread
Xavier’s new fave…tortellini! He can’t get enough of the stuff!
Saturday: Grilled Cheeseburgers & baked fries
Sunday: Pigs in a Blanket & creamy asparagus soup
I saved all the ends of the asparagus from Monday night’s dinner and I’m going to use them up in the soup for this night.
Wishing everyone a week full of good food & great health! J
