Greetings, menu planners! We have a whirlwind week this week, with events almost every night, so we're going for as easy as possible...
Monday--the 6 year old's birthday! So--surprise!--Tacos. Trying really really hard to have the tinga this night for the grownups.
Tuesday--shrimp/corn/tomato dish from Glamour magazine back in the 90s. Love it and it's a great way to use the last of the local produce.
Wednesday--filets mignon, baked potatoes, beets
Saturday is a wedding, and Sunday is the family party for the 6 year old, with the ever-elegant spaghetti and meatballs.
Hey to my local friends--Tuesday night is Panthers Go Pink, sponsored by the high school soccer team. The college soccer team is involved as well, with family events and breast cancer fundraisers around the varsity soccer double header (women's and men's games). The fun starts at 3:30...I highly encourage you to support this if you are local and not busy! Most of you have heard over and over about my best friend, diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer when 17 weeks pregnant. (If you have not heard of IBC I beg you to click over right now.) Due to a team of doctors as aggressive as her cancer, they started chemo (that fabu placenta kept it away from the baby), and delivered her son early so on her due date she could have her mastectomy instead. I am eternally grateful to all her medical team that I can report that she and I were fretting over her son's fifth birthday party invitation list together, which many thought would be impossible. Think pink. Thank you.
Have a good week, and head over to I'm An Organizing Junkie for some great menu ideas!
