This past weekend, barely anything went as planned. On Thursday morning, I woke up with what felt like a bad case of allergies. As the day went on, it became clear that I had come down with a nasty cold. By Friday, I could barely stand for more than a few minutes at a time, so cooking dinner was out of the question. My stuffed peppers got pushed off the Friday menu and we got take-out instead. Saturday, I woke up feeling significantly better than I had the day before, with tons of energy to boot. Unfortunately, the weather was gloomy and rain prevented us from heading out to The Big E. I spent the day puttering around the house, packing away our summer clothes and making room in the closets for our warmer attire. We ended the weekend by taking a trip to the in-law’s to celebrate my father-in-law’s birthday.
I plan to keep things simple this week. I’d love to start writing down menu ideas for Thanksgiving and testing out holiday recipes. The weather has certainly cooled down enough for me to handle the heat in the kitchen.
Here’s what’s on this week’s menu:Monday: Leftovers from the weekend Tuesday: Stuffed Green Peppers, Side Salad Wednesday: Salmon over Lentils, Sauteed Green Beans Thursday: Roast Beef Sandwiches with Horseradish Sauce, Vegetable Chips Friday: Lemon Chicken Breasts, Quinoa Pilaf Saturday: Heading to the Garlic Festival, maybe we’ll have dinner out. If not, leftovers from the night before. Sunday: Going to a baby shower!
