Weekly Menu 3/24 - 3/28


Well, this post is extremely late compared to when I usually share the menu for the week. If you're wondering why, it's because I had a weekend of awesome.

See, back in 2008 I started posting on a message board with a group of ladies. We talk almost daily and over the course of the years, have developed real friendships. Back in 2011, there was a massive gathering in DC that I got to attend. Yesterday, we had another pretty big gathering, in Tyson's Corner, VA. But, this time, instead of just getting to spend a few hours with some lovely ladies, I got house guests from Connecticut! They arrived on Friday night and left early this afternoon. We've had quite the weekend.

Friday was nice and tame, which you'd expect when people from the internet meet in person for the first time. We didn't even drink and went to bed relatively early. Saturday, we got up pretty early and arrived in Tyson's Corner about an hour before we were scheduled to meet with everyone. So we wandered around the Galleria amused at all of the expensive things we couldn't afford to buy.

Lunch with everyone was amazing. Loud, funny, filling, full of alcohol. Just what you'd expect from us. Unfortunately, restaurants don't seem to believe us when we say that we really should be put in a private room and I'm pretty sure we scared away more than a few diners. Oops?

After lunch and general debauchery, we did a bit of shopping to walk off the booze before heading back to my place where we were meeting with another lovely lady who couldn't attend lunch. On the drive back we planned to visit some historical places in MD tomorrow before my CT friends needed to make the trek back north. The night started off innocent enough, we were classy ladies drinking wine and eating egg rolls. But then my husband appeared with shot glasses and we soon had way too much to drink. 90's music and very funny one-liners ensued. I'm pretty sure my neighbors hate us, but whatever. It was awesome.

Which we are all still feeling the side effects of today. Our grand plans to see any historical areas in MD were quickly overruled by the necessity to just lie there. And my plans of making various dessert today where easily changed to lying around after eating all the unhealthy things in hopes of feeling better.

So, the menu for this week is:

Sunday - Buffalo Chicken Pasta

Monday - Steak with Gorgonzola Cheese Sauce, Fried Potatoes and Green Beans 

Tuesday - Oven-Baked French Toast with Raspberry Sauce

Wednesday - General Tso's Chicken 

Thursday - Grilled Beef Fajitas

For breakfast I'm having a berry lime smoothie and for lunch, a veggie wrap. At some point this week I still need to make my recipe swap choice along with an item from my 28 Before 28 List. Lets hope its an easy week so this old lady not used to partying can actually accomplish anything.
