It took me a couple days to recover, but I think I'm finally over the weekend. Apparently I'm no longer of an age to stay up late drinking, sleep on a lumpy hotel mattress, then wake up early to drive back from Riverhead.
The wedding was wonderful, though: blushing bride, handsome groom, and dancing wildly to Ke$ha songs until all hours. Success!
Which brings me to Sunday when I became a Godmother to the son of my oldest friend. Two days in a row of being in church... I never knew I was such a devout Catholic!
Weekly Dinner Plan
Monday: Whoops! Too tired to go to the store- my dad made steak at the beach.
Tuesday: Chicken with Artichokes and Angel Hair, salad
I just realized the time... No supermarket for me today, the aquarium took up too much of our day! Although this recipe was on the agenda for last week, I didn't get to it. A blessing, since we already have the ingredients!
Wednesday: Tuna casserole, salad
I actually still have the Grape Nuts cereal in my cabinet from last time I made this (March!), so it needs to be done. Besides, I so can channel June Cleaver when I sport an apron and mitts, lovingly taking a casserole out of the oven. I'm just so sweet. Okay- maybe not.
Thursday: Baked pesto chicken, couscous, salad
Glancing down at the above website, I realized that this seemed an easy supper to try. One caveat: if you're making pasta earlier in the week (like I am), you may want to replace the angel hair with a different starch. In this case, I'm using couscous.
Friday: Grilled orange sesame chicken with vegetables, salad
Since I loved the pork with peaches so much last week, I thought I'd try another fruity and meaty combo!
Saturday: Grilled Tilapia, salad
Mmmm... the aquarium put me in the mood for fish. Sick, I know.
We're a little heavy on the chicken this week, and probably be clucking by Friday, but we're making it in all different ways, unlike when I was a kid. My sister insisted that we have grilled chicken, rice, and salad every night. Or McDonald's.
