Our to do list this week is pretty full: errands, company, class, cleaning, packing, Mother's Day preparations and work stuff. It's not a week to wait until the eleventh hour to plan dinner.
Making a menu is the one thing that saves us from eating cereal or sandwiches for supper six nights in a row. I've been there; I know from whence I speak.
Here's what'll be on our table this week:
Monday: Mom's cube steak and mashed potatoes (I'll serve these with anything; they're my one specialty.)
Tuesday: Breakfast (Bacon and eggs and grits, oh my!)
Wednesday: Grilled mahi mahi and steamed vegetables
Thursday: Orange sauce pork chops and couscous
Friday: Spaghetti bolognese
Saturday and Sunday: Mother's Day in Columbia. I'm excited to see family, enjoy home-cooked meals, have a dinner date with B and soak up a little girl time at a friend's baby shower. In the spirit of full disclosure, I expect to eat at least a dozen petits fours.
What will y'all be cookin' up this week? Any favorite recipes to share?
