Weekly Menu 8/24 - 8/28


So hey, I never posted a menu last week. It somehow completely slipped my mind (I'm gonna blame it on the vanilla bean and bacon smores) until like Thursday and figured by that point you wouldn't really care what I had to eat.

This has been a fun and productive weekend. Friday night we went to pick up Gidget's cat food and then went to dinner at the restaurant next to it, Taco Love Grill. Which is like the absolute best tacos you will ever have. I also tried some authentic Mexican corn and damn if that wasn't good as well. And the best part, I didn't even realize they had a Twitter, I just tagged them in case and they re-tweeted me!

If you haven't noticed, I get rather excited when people re-tweet me.

In case you are curious, here are the pics of the Mexican corn and the tacos I had. You can choose from like 10 different meats. I went with the chicken, marinated pork and steak. The marinated pork is by far the most delicious thing you will ever taste.

In other, very attractive news, all of the guys from Once Upon A Time have participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. I'd suggest going to Youtube and Instagram to see all their videos. Jennifer Morrison and Lana Parilla have also done it. Emilie de Ravin and Georgina Haig have been nominated (as of Saturday).

So now that I've sufficiently distracted you with tacos and Mexican corn, here's what I'm making for the week.

Sunday: bacon cheeseburgers and sweet potato fries

Monday: cherry balsamic pork, baked sweet potato, garlic-rosemary roasted mushrooms 

Tuesday: pan-seared chicken breast, mashed sweet potatoes and green beans 

Wednesday: thai curry shrimp

Thursday: turkey picatta, baked sweet potatoes and cucumber salad

Breakfast will be the ever popular prosciutto egg cups and for lunch I'm having orange-balsamic pork tenderloin, mashed sweet potatoes and bacon and vinegar kale.

I haven't come upon a sudden obsession with sweet potatoes, it's just that I'm doing another Whole 30 this month. Well, it's going to be a weird Whole 30 because I refuse not to have crab cakes on my anniversary (9.17) and I wasn't able to start this early enough to end it before then. So I'll have a whole 20+ with a day off then complete the rest.
