Over the last two weeks, we had some great meals thanks to a solid menu plan and an eager cook (my mother!).
Here's the rundown:
Monday: Pasta with shrimp and Trader Joe's pesto
Tuesday: Leftovers...or, as my parents say, "Schmorgusboard!" After Misha's arrival, we received an onslaught of delicious dishes from our wonderful friends. We needed to clean out the fridge to make room for a new batch of groceries!
Wednesday: Joan's famous Black Bean Soup with a tasty salad and an incredible loaf of bread from whole foods. I forgot how much I love whole food's bread. I must also comment on Joan's soup- she made up the recipe herself and it was seriously the best black bean soup I have ever tasted. Apparently, it had beer and cocoa powder in the mix.
Thursday: Coconut Curry Chicken Soup with grapes and orange slices and a loaf of bread.
Friday: Punch Pizza Take Out
Saturday: Gathering at friend's
Sunday: Trader Joe's pork tenderloin (cooked with rosemary) with Moosewood tabbouleh, homemade hummus, and pita wedges.
Monday: Cold pasta salad with an assortment of fresh vegetables, canned tuna, and garbanzo beans.
Tuesday: Stir fry with leftover pork tenderloin, israeli couscous, leftover stir fry veggies from Costco, some fresh veggies, and sliced pineapple on the side.
Wednesday: Greek Style Turkey Burgers in pita with arugula, tomatoes, and cucumber yogurt dip.
Thursday: Two Bean Soup with kale and dakota bread from Great Harvest and salad
Friday: Takeout pizza and salad
Saturday: Three Bean Vegetarian chili with queso and Trader Joe's cornbread
