What a wonderful weekend!

I spent Friday night with the lovely James and Natalie, along with Megan and Amber.  James was our chauffeur while we enjoyed a fun girls’ night out. We ate wonderful pizza at Ted’s Most Best, drank delicious drinks at The Globe and Manhattan, and danced the night away at 9e’s bar. Our trip was topped off with Saturday brunch at Mama’s Boy.

Sunday morning (after an extra hour of sleep!), David and I headed to Flying Biscuit…where we dined with a CELEBRITY! Brenda Wood!  An Atlanta celebrity!

On the menu this week….

Sunday–Chicken and Gnocchi Soup (DELICIOUS.  I’ll share the recipe later this week!)

Monday–Panko Crusted Salmon Cakes

Tuesday–Lasagna Soup

Wednesday–Chicken Stir Fry

Thursday–Burrito Bowls

Friday–Leftovers!

Hope you have a great start to your week!

Ahhh…we’re back from Vegas, and we’re trying to get back into our daily routine.  Nothing too fancy this week as we try to catch up with work….and I try to limit a bruised ego from eating at fancy restaurants!  We ate some of the best food while on vacation, so I’m kind of afraid to jump into the kitchen this week.  I’m quite sure that none of my meals are going to measure up to a Bobby Flay restaurant.

Here’s what we’re cooking….

Tuesday–Potato (not sweet for us!), black bean and beef chili with my attempt at the Bobby Flay corn muffins that we had at Mesa Grill.  So good.

Wednesday–Pasta with marinara, artichoke bruschetta.

Thursday–Quesadillas using Chicken Ropa Vieja.

Friday–Burrito bowls using leftover Chicken Ropa Vieja.

We’re back!

I’ve had a busy two weeks at work, so my poor blog took a bit of a back seat to all of that.  We’ve had lots of great recipes during that time, so I’ll be posting those throughout this week.  Meanwhile…here’s our menu for the week.

Monday–Black Bean burgers.  This will be out first venture into black bean burgers.  I’m planning to go with this recipe, simply because I’ve used this site multiple times and really love her recipes.  Does anyone have a black bean burger recipe you use and love?  Let me know!

Tuesday–Chicken with Lemon-Leek Linguine

Wednesday–Polenta Lasagna (without mushrooms…gross!)

Thursday–Chicken with Gorgonzola-Tomato Salsa

Friday–leftovers!

On a totally unrelated note, I finally broke down and purchased the Erin Condren life planner.  As many pieces of technology as we have, there is nothing that makes me feel more organized than a paper planner.  And the Erin Condren planner is the mother of all planners.  I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.  It’s definitely a bit more expensive than regular planners (look for promo codes!), but it’s the only one that combined all of the parts of other planners that I love.

Hope y’all have a happy start to your week!

I was lucky enough to have a four-day weekend, and David had a three-day weekend.  And, honestly, we didn’t do that much. It was nice to lounge around and get caught up on some reading and TV shows.  Plus, no work means time to try out some new breakfast recipes…I’ll be sharing those later!

I ended up switching out the Baked Lemon Herb Chicken from last week with Potato Chorizo Enchiladas.  The recipe just calls for beef, but we had some chorizo that we wanted to try, so we added that in with the beef.  They were delicious!  I’ll be making the Lemon Herb Chicken this week.

This week in the Klein kitchen….

Monday- Dry rubbed slow cooker pulled pork

Tuesday- Baked Lemon Herb Chicken

Yum.  Last week was a delicious one.  Our favorite new recipe was definitely the Cilantro Lime Chicken, but I changed it up a bit.  I used a conglomeration of recipes to create the dish, and it was fabulous!

I used this chicken recipe, this rice recipe, and the Pioneer Woman’s pico de gallo and guacamole recipe.  Certainly a great combination.

Now, on to this week!

Monday-leftovers!

Tuesday-a romantic dinner at SAGE

Wednesday-Baked Lemon Herb Chicken

Thursday-Pasta with Turkey Sausage and Zucchini

Friday-Homemade Pizza

We had an absolutely wonderful weekend!  Birthday celebrations were plentiful, and I feel so lucky that my family and friends shared in the fun.  Thank you!

We ate at two fabulous restaurants this weekend.  For lunch, we ate at Bone Garden Cantina.  It is some seriously amazing Mexican food, and it’s a really fun atmosphere.  Between all of us, we ordered a variety of dishes, and they were all delicious.  If you go, you must get the hot chocolate and churros for dessert.  So. Good.

For dinner, we ate at Le Petite Maison Bistro.  It was fabulous as well.  David went out on a limb (and, for those of you that know us, you know we don’t go out on limbs when it comes to food…) and ordered FROG LEGS.  He loved them.  I had a nibble, and they were delicious, but I just couldn’t quite get over the fact that I was eating Kermit.  I had shrimp and scallop linguine, and it was wonderful.  We definitely recommend both spots!

And now…for dinner this week…

Happy Tuesday, y’all!

Last week our favorite dish was definitely the Ravioli Bake.  Unfortunately, we were halfway done before I remembered to take a picture…oops! It was really good.  There was plenty for us to eat leftovers a few nights later…and it was just as delicious!

This week….

Speaking of birthday dinner out, some of our favorite restaurants are of the Here 2 Serve group.  Noche is wonderful.  Their shrimp and grits dish is one of the best I’ve ever had.  We also love Goldfish.  They have some of the freshest sushi around town.  Anyway, their reward program, which is free to sign up for, is called Friends of Tom.  And, in addition to racking up points and getting 10% off every time you eat at one of their restaurants, you get $25 off your check on your birthday!

 

Hope your weekends were fabulous! Happy Monday!
