menu plan. We went out to eat not once but TWICE last week.
Once was Tuesday, which was a gorgeous night and we sat outside at Five Leaves and had some of our favorite go-to foods - a burger for Boyfriend, mussels for your MatchGirl - and Friday, after a long week, and with your MatchGirl in the middle of some intense Spring Cleaning (more on that in a later post) we went our for Indian on our way to a birthday party.
It's OK, though. The pork for Saturday's dinner was put in the freezer and will keep until a day this week.
So ... what are our big plans for our forty-fifth week of menu planning, with a very special anniversary added to the mix?
Monday: Meatless Monday means a veggie stir-fry. We've loads of things to throw into it, and I'll pick up some tofu for a little extra protein.
Tuesday: I have an event. I'll be home late, but probably hungry. Boyfriend has whipped up a pork Bolognese (Thanks, Esquire!) that we'll have
Wednesday: I'm planning on spending the afternoon with friends in New Jersey. Dinner will be a big chopped salad. (We are trying to eat a bit healthier as bikini season approaches!)
Thursday: The pork chops we failed to make last week!
Friday: Friday is always a low key evening for us, after long and busy weeks, I think I'll pick up the makings for the beet pasta from two weeks ago.
Saturday: Sometimes we're a little more ambitious on Saturday. I'd like to try this coconut peanut sauce beef recipe that I found on Gojee a few weeks back.
Sunday: Sunday marks the one year anniversary of us moving in to our little home. We'll mark this date with a special dinner... stay tuned for details.
