Woo hoo!!! Finally, I’m finishing something! My very last What’s For Dinner post to finish out year of dinner menus.
So, what are we eating this week?

T – crazy night so veggie burgers, sweet potato fries
W – left-over grilled chicken, etc
T – pasta w/shrimp and zucchini
F – left-overs
S – bbq at a friends
My second to last dinner post.
I wish I was ending with a bang, with some new recipes, but alas, the best that can be said is that I’m finishing it.
S – grilled
teriyaki chicken breast steak marinated balsamic vinegar and herbs(b/c I forgot to defrost the chicken), potato salad, Mediterranean pepper salad - the steak came out so tender and delicious… we don’t eat beef often, but man was it good!
M – left-over Sicilian pizza from Saturday, salad
T – chicken flautas, yellow rice, left-over pepper salad
W – left-over steak
T – shrimp and pasta
F - black beans w/yellow rice and salad
S – left-overs
I guess it’s telling that the posts I write these days is the “What’s For Dinner” ones. This spring’s been crazy and just plain draining. Just when I think we’re over the hump, Peanut throws us off with 2-year molar and/or another cold and/or just plain terrible two’s syndrome.
I’m oh-so-tired. Nearly psychotically tired and if I can muster some energy, I would like to write a little more on that subject.
But this is about this week’s dinner which isn’t very ambitious or organized, really, but I’ve got only a couple more weeks to go so trying to finish even if I’m limping to the finish line.
S – make-do… did I ever explain what that is? It is when we just scrounge around the fridge/pantry for something edible, for the kids mac and cheese with cut-up string beans and for D, frozen pizza and for me, I had been to a bridal shower brunch and was still too full to eat.
M – saengsun jun (Korean fried-fish), dumplings, kale namul and steamed rice
T – pasta and meatballs
W – flautas, garlicky swiss chard, yellow rice
T – left-overs
F – veggie burgers
S – Papa’s 80th birthday surprise party – grilled meats, pasta salad and stuff
