This will be an interesting week. Family and friends are heading back to their homes so it will just be us for most of the week. We ended up with a ton of leftovers from the weekend (woohoooooooo!) and I had already started to prep a meal for Sunday evening so we’ll have to have that in the beginning of the week. Made for a very inexpensive grocery shopping trip. As Heather of RHONY would say, “Holla!” 🙂
Monday: Leftovers. Kiddos had Dewey’s pizza leftovers since they had Shish Wraps leftovers for lunch and hubs and I had Shish Wraps leftovers. I am going to mourn the loss of Shish Wraps. Maybe Simon will let us franchise a Shish Wraps in Germany. A girl can dream, right? Luckily I do have a great tabbouleh recipe…the quinoa tabbouleh on my Favorite Healthy Recipes Pinterest page is the perfect balance of veggies to grains to lemony goodness.
Tuesday: Asian Chicken and Cabbage Salad. I already prepped the chicken and just need to prep the rest of the ingredients. I think I’ll get this ready early in the day so I can have it for lunch and the rest of the fam can have it for dinner since Chloe and I are headed to P.F. Chang’s for a hot date with local dietitians.
Wednesday: Leftovers. I am praying we have enough leftovers otherwise we’ll have Ree Drummond’s pantry pasta. I think she is my Woman Crush Wednesday this week. What is not to love? She is a city girl that is doin’ her thing in the middle of nowhere, making money, having a successful home and making delicious food. This is exactly what I aspire to do now that we are moving away from my dream job…maybe not quite the middle of nowhere. Maybe more the middle of Miami or the outskirts of Washington, DC, but still. Love and respect and admire her like woah.
Thursday: Red beans and rice. Have I ever mentioned that I love beans and sausage and rice? And that this is likely a meal we’ll have two times a week when Ryan is a teenager? That boy can EAT! Luckily he would survive well in a developing nation due to his love of beans and rice. He could subsist on rice, luckily. I am skeptical of Paleo diets simply for their exclusion of beans. Can you really have a healthy diet without beans? I’m still trying to figure that out. What do you think? I just don’t know how to live without them!
Friday: Wingin’ it! Chloe and I will be heading back from our road trip to drop the car off and send it on its way to Germany and hubs will have the kids to himself after our AMAZING friends watch them for the day. He should totally bring dinner to them and some of his home brews, right?
Saturday: Chorizo burgers with sweet corn guacamole. Only Rachael Ray could come up with such a divine sounding burger. This sounds like the perfect recipe for us to use up the rest of the chorizo in our freezer AND having some AMAZING Ohio sweet corn. Ohio may not have great drivers (my Dad is still talking about the not yielding), but they sure do know how to grow some amazing vegetables. The closer we get to CSA season the sadder I get. I just keep reminding myself that I will be able to walk to a bakery from my future house. Hope I can get some veggies straight from a farmer’s hands in Germany, too.
What is your favorite Spring or Summer produce? Strawberries? Rhubarb? Asparagus? Peas? Sweet corn? I can’t decide! Thanks for reading. I hope you have a great week!
