Weekly Menu 5/22 - 5/27


Work has been horrendous lately. Two people are no longer with us and pretty much all of their responsibilities have fallen to me, on top of the full time position I already have. Today, my "boss" (he isn't but there is no other way to describe him) suggested that we move the server to the conference room so the new admin starting on Monday had a clean office.

He suggests this after I spent the last 2 hours cleaning out the desk of the previous people, vacuuming and trying to organize files. I went along with it, even though he said that last time we moved it without using an IT person, it didn't go well. Of course, that also happened this time. I had planned on taking work home to get everything done over the weekend so I could spend the necessary time training the new person without getting behind on my work. Without any internet or server access at the office, I can't also access it at home. So now  it will be almost noon before I can even begin to train the new admin. She starts at 9. ::sigh::

When I got home today I decided I was going to plan out the menu for next week immediately because well, food and cooking makes me happy and after this week, I needed it.

Sunday - pizza dip with parmesan herb breadsticks

Monday - chicken in a garlic wine sauce

Tuesday - reuben burgers with fries and roasted asparagus

Wednesday - BBQ shrimp, pineapple and mushroom skewers with grilled asparagus and tomatoes

Thursday - gnocchi (maybe with sauce, or maybe with meatballs and sauce)

Friday - chicken bacon ranch pizza

Have you tried the Orchard Chicken Salad from Subway yet? I did the other week and I was less than impressed. I figured it couldn't be all that difficult to make at home so I'm going to try a variation of that for lunches this week.

For dessert, I found a recipe for a lemon-buttermilk poundcake in my google reader. I always seem to have leftover buttermilk so I'm hoping this will use up the rest of it. I've had a bit of an obsession with lemon lately so I'm really excited to try this out. I've never made a pound cake before so we'll see how that goes. Fingers crossed!
