Since I returned to work last fall, our schedule has been a little hectic. I've done plenty of cooking between now and then, but most of it quick stuff that I can throw together. I've rarely had time to just let loose in my kitchen and enjoy myself.
Yesterday I took some time.
Boy, did I need to do that. I needed to remind myself that I loved playing in my kitchen and making a mess.
And since I will have a bit of time this week to put towards dinners, I'm going to have a bit more fun in the kitchen with this week's menu plan.
Btw, it's a short week because of the holiday weekend coming up, Easter. We won't be home for the weekend, but I will be cooking at my mother's house as well.
Sunday: Bruchetta with rib eye steak in whiskey cream sauce, corn fritters and garlic aioli.
Monday: Lasagna and garlic bread.
Tuesday: Meatloaf with mashed potatoes.
Wednesday: Double coconut chicken with grilled pineapple and papaya.
Thursday: Make your own salad night (with left overs.)
Friday: At my mothers, possibly having nachos.
And that's my contribution to this week's Menu Plan Monday.
