Weekly Menu 7/22 - 7/25

It's a short menu this week because I'm having a girls weekend at the beach with my friend Shannon.We're going down Thursday night after work and staying with my aunt in Bethany Beach. I'm not sure yet if we'll come home Sunday night or Monday morning. It all depends on the weather.

It's been years since I've went on vacation with one of my friends. I think the last time I went I was 19 which was 8 years ago. Ugh, I'm getting old! We don't have any real plans for the weekend other than hanging out at the beach, going to the boardwalk and going out one night. I'm ready!

Sunday - Blogger's Choice Recipe Swap with Baked Potatoes and Green Beans

Monday - Mexican Burgers with Garlic Corn Rice 

Tuesday - Margherita Pizza

Wednesday - Mango-Pineapple Chicken Stir Fry 

Yesterday the cats decided to wake me up at 6:30. I debated on going back to bed but found that Tom had sprawled out sideways taking up the whole bed, so with nothing better to do, I started cleaning. To make it easier on myself, I decided I would do a deep clean every 2 months. Today ended up being the first time. The slipcovers were washed, every knick knack and picture was removed from their home and thoroughly dusted. The bookshelf and cookshelf (a bookshelf holding my extra kitchen stuff) were reorganized for maximum efficiency. The fridge and freezer were emptied and cleaned. The tops of the washer and dryer were wiped off. Everything was removed from the desk, wiped down and then the desk was cleaned. All of the bedding was washed. Everything on the shelves in my closet out to be refolded.

Somewhere around 11:30 I mentioned to Tom that I had already been cleaning for 5 hours. It didn't seem nearly that long, but he said that I should get something for it. I looked at him blankly and he said "We could go to Don Pablo's today..."

SCORE! Ever since my aunt brought a queso to my mom's party on the 7th I've wanted some Mexican food. Along with the queso, I had chipotle pork tacos and white sangria. Yum! I also noticed that Mondays are Fajitas for 2 for $20 and Tuesday is All You Can Eat Tacos for $8. I have a feeling lots of Mexican food will be in my near future.

So other than the dinners listed above, I'm making two types of ice cream this week, a peach and raspberry pie and some brownies.
