This week we had some of what we planned…but none of it on the day we meant to! Hubby bubby was really in the mood for steak when we got home from grocery shopping and was not so much in the mood for fish this week.
Sunday: Stuffed acorn squash with sausage, barley and goat cheese. Hubby bubby wanted steak so we had mustard citrus grilled steak with potatoes and salad. It was too cold to grill and hubby bubby decided he has an adversarial relationship with the grill pan so he made these under the broiler. The flavor was good but the texture was off, almost like they were steamed. I am not ready to give up on the grill pan. We are definitely going to try this one again…on the actual grill next time!
Monday: Mustard-crusted branzino. Hubby bubby was “just not feelin’” fish tonight. I told him that Bon Appetit thinks this recipe is simple and romantic (it was in one of their email newsletters this week!). Today we ended up having the linguine with shrimp and lemon oil and wild arugula salad with garlic croutons. These are two of our favorite recipes. I love that the shrimp cooks from frozen and doesn’t taste watery or rubbery. Everyone loved it, but Ryan didn’t eat much arugula since he thought it was spicy.
Tuesday: Bistro steak with red wine sauce with smashed potatoes and salad. Stuffed acorn squash with sausage, barley and goat cheese. This was amazing! Hubby was not sure if he would like this but he did so we will definitely make it again. I doubled the goat cheese J. The kids really liked it, too. The squash was nice and sweet so Ryan ate it like a lollipop. How can you go wrong with an orange veggie, whole grain, cheese and sausage?!
Wednesday: Leftovers. Date night and pizza party for the kiddos and the best babysitter in the world.
Thursday: Linguine with shrimp and lemon oil and wild arugula salad with garlic croutons. Leftovers. Thank goodness for leftovers! I really started to feel very pregnant so it was a blessing to have yummy leftovers and not have to think about dinner.
Friday: Pecan coconut crusted fish with salad with miso, ginger and sesame dressing. I still was not feeling good so we did Cheesecake Factory salads and got pasta for the kids.
Saturday: Drunken steaks with peppery oven fries and salad. Forgot to marinate the steak overnight, oopsie (story of my life!) so we had herb-topped sirloin with peperonata, oven fries, salad and some baked chicken since hubby bubby thought the steaks I bought were too small. Everything was delish! Check out the steak recipe on my Pinterest page. We all ate more than our fair share and finished it off with some dark chocolate covered strawberries. Happy Valentine’s Day!
