Happy birthday to me!

This week was my birthday so I got to pick my birthday meal and cake.  The pumpkin cake was the big winner so we had that and it was so yummy!  Papa arrives late this week and we are all so excited to see him.

Sunday:  My birthday!  We had red-wine spaghetti and meatballs with arugula salad with pomegranate vinaigrette (check out www.thegourmetrd.com for the recipe!).  These were the best meatballs I have ever had.  The combination of ricotta and couscous in the meatball really made them tender and gave great flavor.  I think this will be my birthday meal every year for the rest of my life.  The salad was amazing!  Ryan was trying to scoop the salad up with his hands he liked it so much!

Monday: Leftovers.  A little earlier in the week than we usually have them but needed to make some room in the fridge.  We were all happy to have some more meatballs and cake, of course, mmmMMMmmm.

Tuesday: Marinated flank steak with bleu cheese sauce and salad.  The flank steak was pounded thin so it was super tender.  We all liked this one.  Ryan ate almost all of the blue cheese sauce himself.  He had a little bit of steak with his sauce. 🙂

Wednesday: One-hour Spanish chickpea soup.  Hubby bubby made this in the pressure cooker and it disappeared very quickly.  Ryan didn’t want the greens, but ate three bowls of the beans.  Hannah ate three bowls of the soup.  Such a happy mama that they love their beans like I do!  I am so impressed with how quickly the pressure cooker can cook dried beans. Truly amazing!

Thursday: Tonight we’re having the Asian pork wraps.  They are actually in the slow cooker now…finally remembered to thaw the pork! 🙂  This has an Asian slaw to go with it so they are almost like Asian tacos.

Friday:  Jerk rubbed catfish with slaw and rice for another Friday during Lent.  I’m hoping our jerk spice isn’t too spicy for the kiddos or Papa.  Hannah can probably handle more spice than Papa if we’re being honest.  Hopefully we’ll remember to cook a piece or two of fish without it just in case.

Ryan is super excited for Papa to arrive on Friday!

Saturday: Salsa verde pork with rice and salad.  Since our pork loin was ginormous we are using the rest of it for a southwest style pork.  This one is super easy…a good way to round out the week!

What are you up to this week?  How does your family do with spicy food?  Hope you have a great week.  Thanks for reading!

    I was wondering if you happen to considered changing
    the layout of your respective blog? Its well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But perhaps you could a little bit more in the form of content so people could connect to
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having 1 or two pictures. You may could space it better?
