This Week's Eats

    Another gorgeous day in Seattle!  My spirits were slightly dampened by a certain 5 year old that is in a lovely phase of picking a fight with me ever 5 minutes (as opposed to every 20 or so) and we both left preschool in a massive snit.  Gee, I wonder where he gets it from...  Nonetheless, we managed to regroup and spent more than an hour soaking up the sun in the backyard.  I'm wondering if we should switch up the routine (gasp!) and do the turkey burgers tonight instead of pizza so we can fire up the grill... hmmm, well I'll just leave pizza for now and play it by ear.  Happy Monday!

  • Monday: yes, pizza - think we'll do the Dominos take out deal if we get it tonight.  8 bucks for a large 3 topping pizza ain't bad.
  • Tuesday: turkey burgers - I just take 1/2 pound of ground turkey and add a little egg, breadcrumbs, cilantro, chopped garlic, jalapeno and onion, along with a ton of southwest spices: chili powder, cumin, oregano and cayenne and throw 'em on the grill
  • Wednesday: angel hair with roasted red pepper sauce, toasted walnuts and goat cheese - awesome recipe I found in Fitness magazine 
  • Thursday: havin' the artichoke chicken from last week because we got lazy one night and ate sandwiches instead.
  • Friday: chicken fajitas
  • Saturday: rigatoni with arrabiata sauce (in a dutch oven, sautee 1/2 pound italian sausage with onion/garlic in olive oil, deglaze with some white wine once it's cooked and add 28oz can crushed tomatoes, 8 oz sauce and a can of tomato paste - let it cook as long as you can stand waiting to eat)
  • Sunday: pork tenderloin with ginger dipping sauce and roasted red potatoes
