Weekly Menu 3/15 - 3/19


This month sure is flying by isn't it? After St. Patrick's Day this week, we have Easter and then Memorial day will be right around the corner.

While I don't want to wish away the year, I am more than pleased with our warmer temperatures. Last week I even wore flip flops and it looks like we're going to have high's in and near the 60's for this week, which makes me incredibly happy.

Yesterday, I went to the movies with my friend to see Cinderella. Now, I was never a huge Disney fan as a kid. The princesses didn't mean much to me. But after watching Once Upon A Time, I've become a bit more interested, and once I saw that Lily James from Downton Abbey was playing Cinderella, I was hooked. The movie has great reviews and I thought it was amazing. Everyone needs to go see it!

Usually I'm not a big movies person anyway, preferring to wait until they're out on DVD, but the trailers they showed for the upcoming movies all looked really, really good. (Something else that doesn't always happen.) The Age of Adaline with Blake Lively looks incredible and then, because apparently I'm actually a child, so does the Frozen sequel, the minions movie and some slightly futuristic movie with George Clooney.

Maybe, since I found out the tickets are $6.59 at a 9:30 am showing of a non-IMAX movie, I'll become more of a movie go-er.

As for the meals this week, I had to change it up a bit. With Tom sick for about 10 days I barely cooked anything and most of the meals are being bumped to this week. Then I completely forgot to account for St. Patrick's Day. Tom is going out of state for work on the actual day, so we'll have it on Monday instead and Tuesday I'll enjoy leftovers.

Sunday: bacon wrapped chicken with onion gravy, baked sweet potatoes, roasted asparagus 

Monday: corned beef and cabbage with potatoes and carrots 

Tuesday: leftovers

Wednesday: pork medallions with mushroom saute, baked sweet potatoes, asparagus

Thursday: kung pao meatballs over cauliflower rice and stir fry veggies 

For breakfast this week, I'm embracing the sales on berries and have a triple berry crisp. Lunch will be a bread-less turkey BLT.

Also, you may have noticed, the sidebars of this blog look a little bit different. I have decided after over six years of blogging, that I want a bit of a change. I am looking into switching over to Wordpress (and self hosted at that!) to offer more functionality in my layout and design.

However, I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing and I'm worried about putting money into this that I will never see back so it's going to be a slow process. Bear with me? And obviously, offer me any suggestions you may have.
