My teen son told me we needed to branch out with our meals at home, so I’m going to be a little more adventurous this week.
Monday – Pesto Angel hair pasta with shrimp, zucchini on side, bread
This little packet is great. You can find it in the aisle with the chili seasoning and marinades.
Tuesday- Carnitas from Trader Joe’s (They come in a vacuum sealed package and you just heat them up), cilantro lime rice, corn with chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe’s
Wednesday- Chicken, baked beans, roasted potatoes
Thursday- Mediterranean style pork (bought it marinated that way), couscous , green beans
Friday – take out
Saturday – go out
This is a little more creative than last week!
This weekend went by so quickly! We were a little busier than I like to be and the weather still wouldn’t cooperate for me. I did get to make it to Trader Joe’s and Kroger and I was done before 9:30 with both of those on Saturday. That was a great accomplishment! We didn’t have time to go out to eat either night, but we did have take out from our local Thai place Friday night. That was delish!
I will do a full post on entertainment soon, but I finished a book that came highly recommended to me – The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. I think I enjoyed The Last Mrs. Parrish more. The Wife was slow moving IMO and I kept waiting for more twists and turns. I finished the book still having lingering questions and I hate that! So, I don’t know if I would recommend it. Maybe it was too soon to read it after Mrs. Parrish? Here is my ultimate review: meh. Did I miss something? Please comment if you have read it!
Alright, let’s kick Monday’s butt!
