Weekly Menu 3/22 - 3/26


Well this month surely passed by in a hurry. I have no idea how it is practically April and I'm that much closer to 30. With a little less than three weeks to go until I enter my third decade of life, I'm beginning to wonder if I'm ever going to encounter the freak out stage that so many people have.

I'm probably jinxing myself, by typing this but I don't think it is going to happen. Ever since I was about to turn 22, I started off the beginning of that year thinking about what life would be like being one year older. (So far, it hasn't actually been that different each year.) I thinking spending 2-3 months thinking about myself as the age I'll turn in April tends to eliminate any freak outs.

Plus, it's just a number. I don't feel 29 right now and I've never actually "felt" any other age that I've ever been so why should 30 feel any different? I guess if I really wanted to be all negative I could say that this is not what I expected for my life at 30, which is true, but the last time I really thought about how I wanted my entire life to end up, was right before my high school graduation and should my life have actually turned out exactly as planned, I'd probably be more creeped out about that fact.

Anyway, all of this talk about ages and birthdays is not just because my birthday is approaching but because I'm doing something rather fun in early celebration. I've had friends on a message board for over 5 years now and as I've mentioned, we sometimes get to meet. One of them, who lives in Massachusetts is turning 30 on Friday and we're having a big get together to celebrate with her. I've never been to MA and I've never flown alone. With less than a month til I turn 30 I figured there was no better time than to cross those two things off my not-actually-written-down things to do list.

But you're not here to hear me babble about birthdays and entering new decades of life, you're here for the recipe so let's get onto sharing with you what we're going to eat this week!

Sunday: shepherd's pie

Monday: grilled hawaiian chicken and green beans (as a sandwich with fries for Tom and with coconut "rice" for me)

Tuesday: potsticker meatballs, cauliflower rice, stir fry vegetables

Wednesday: gnocchi with bacon butter sauce, green beans

Thursday: breakfast potatoes 

For breakfast this week I'm having prosciutto egg cups and lunch will be a kale and bacon salad.

And for some non-birthday related things, make sure to come back and check out some cool posts this week. I'm making a Paleo and Vegan friendly dish for The Wynn in Las Vegas and I'm also joining up with some other bloggers and making cheesecake for a fellow bloggers 15th wedding anniversary. I'm also terribly overdue to give you a recap on how our Florida vacation went so that will be coming up this week as well.
