Menu Monday!



ListCloseUp

Another Menu Monday! ¬†I actually finished making the menu and shopping list at 2:00PM yesterday. ¬†Not bad! ¬†Normally the menu is created either LATE Sunday or very early Monday… so a productive Sunday.

This week I’ve been craving some old favorites and comfort food. ¬†So you may see some serious repeats… but I was really craving it!

Menu Monday!

ListCloseUp

Well, well, Monday.  We meet again.

First, if you follow me on Instagram, you saw on Saturday a video of Elizabeth crawling!!!!!! She just decided to do it, randomly.  Yay her!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Father’s Day for us was quiet. ¬†The doctor hubby was on call on Sunday, meaning he didn’t come home from the hospital until about 6:00, and then had to go BACK in after dinner… so yay for his first Father’s Day…

He did request a pretty awesome dinner. ¬†Last week I made this Spicy Basil Tofu. ¬†O.M.G. ¬†This was AMAZING! ¬†He asked for this again for Father’s Day, and then I also made a batch of Thai Yellow Curry, so our tummies were very happy. ¬†FYI – if you like a saucy Spicy Basil Tofu, that particular recipe is lacking. ¬†When I made it a second time, I tripled the sauce part of the recipe.

Enough chit chat… on to the menu!

Menu Monday!

ListCloseUp

Monday! ¬†Another weekend just whizzed by. ¬†We had a blast up in Virginia on Saturday. ¬†Elizabeth’s first trip to the zoo was a success!

In unrelated news, I finally have a Twitter account. ¬†I’m learning the ropes, so if you’d like to follow me and give me tips, I’d appreciate all the help I can get! ¬†And I promise I’ll follow you back!

Shameless plug over.

The menu this week has some new-to-me items. ¬†I’ve been craving Asian food (instead of Mexican, for once) and wanted to try to make Spicy Basil Tofu. ¬†Then, the current issue of Cook’s Illustrated arrived, and it had a recipe for Singapore Noodles. ¬†Sounded interesting, and will hopefully satisfy my cravings!

Hey hey! ¬†Another week has begun. ¬†Hope you’re having a spectacular Memorial Day weekend!

The menu this week looks a little light. ¬†We have a husband work dinner on Wednesday at a new local pizza place, Pompieri Pizza. ¬†I have been drooling over Instagram pics people have been posting for weeks! ¬†I need to remember to snap a few pictures myself when we’re there. ¬†(Fingers crossed for no baby meltdowns)

Monday:
Veggie Burgers & Onion Rings

Stovetop Mac & Cheese

Wednesday:
Dinner out at Pompieri Pizza
