Weekly Menu 7/30 - 8/2

This post is awkward. You're reading it on Sunday but because I'm going to be at the beach on Sunday I'm posting this Thursday morning. I feel like I'm in some type of weird time lapse. It's hard to write about the future when you're currently in the past.

So I guess I'll just be that asshole that brags to you about the beach. Thursday night after work I'm leaving with one of my friends go to stay at my aunt's house in Bethany. We have no real plans scheduled for our mini vacation but there are just so many things I want to do.

We definitely need to head into Ocean City one day. It's been much too long since I've wandered up and down the boardwalk people watching the crazies and eating some of the best junk food ever. If you haven't been to the Ocean City, MD boardwalk, I highly suggest you go and stop on Dorchester Street. There you will find the Polish Water Ice which is some of the best water ice you'll ever eat in your entire life. A Polish Water Ice can only be balanced out by their neighbor, The Wrapper. The Wrapper sells just about anything you can think of baked inside a soft pretzel log. To say that I survived on Polish Water Ice and Wrappers during my senior week at the beach would be an understatement.

My friend has an appointment for a tattoo on Saturday in Rehoboth so I'm thinking we'll do some shopping at the outlets. Its been a long time since I've been to more than just the northern-most outlet in Rehoboth. Should be an interesting day for my wallet. I know of two kitchen stores alone. Uh oh.

Other than some time at the beach and a night out, I'm thinking we're mostly just going to relax. The weather better be nice! I didn't get to spend any time at the pool last weekend because Mother Nature and I got into an argument about when the sun should come out and she won. :(

Monday - Chiles Rellenos

Tuesday - Mango-Pineapple Chicken Stir Fry

Wednesday - Garlic Parsley Shrimp

Thursday - Sesame Crusted Beef with Roasted Potatoes and Fried Sweet Corn  

I don't know if I'll be home early enough on Monday to do any baking. I have some simple recipes I want to try out so we'll just have to see.

  1. Any chance you're blogging the corn soon? I keep getting subpar not sweet corn from my CSA and I need something like this to use it for.

    1. So funny you commented on it today. I changed around the menu and ended up making it tonight. I wasn't planning on blogging it yet, but I found the recipe here: http://thischickcooks.net/2012/07/19/how-to-avoid-genetically-modified-corn-recipe-for-fried-sweet-corn-with-basil-butter/ and I can say its 100% delicious!
