My calendar is claiming that we have 0 weddings this week. Can this be possible? Let's celebrate with an easy menu...
Weekly Dinner Plan
Monday: Sauteed peas with pasta, salad
After successfully removing every item from my purse and throwing it around like confetti throughout the living room, Avery has become exhausted and has gone down for an unexpected afternoon nap, so I don't think going to the supermarket is in the cards for today. Luckily, we have the ingredients to make some pasta and a bit of lettuce for a side salad!
Tuesday: Grilled Ahi tuna, grilled oriental eggplant, salad
I think good tuna is best seasoned with just a little salt and pepper, then placed on the grill for a couple minutes. Nothing fancy... leave a great thing alone!
Wednesday: Veggie Burgers
A late golf game for Kyle means that I'm on my own for dinner. Morningstar's veggie burgers are a good option- easy AND already in the freezer. SOLD!
Thursday: Roasted pork chops and peaches, couscous, salad
Just got my August issue of Real Simple yesterday, so I thought I'd try some of their recipes. I love the thought of such a sweet and savory combination!
Friday: Mussels with pesto, salad
My favorite thing in the summer is to nosh on fresh shellfish while enjoying a beautiful sunset. The experience reminds me of a trip to Honfleur, a stunning port town in Normandy, France. Sitting at an outdoor cafe with my mom, we enjoyed bowls of these wonderful treats, while looking out at the colorful houses that line the port. Hopefully, this recipe can compare to the simple goodness that we enjoyed on that day.
Saturday: Rigatoni peperonata, salad
On Monday we had PASTINA, so that meal really counts as soup, right? Right?
This meal looked too good to pass up anyway. So pasta night occurs twice this time... I'll just have to where Spanx under my bridesmaid dress next week.
