What's for dinner?

A blog about what we had for dinner!  If you want to see our cookbooks, check out the cookbook shelf link at the top my the blog.

Monday:   Chipotle

I used to hate Chipotle.  Mostly because I hated their meat, so I switched to veggie bowls and all was well.  Then I discovered barbacoa.  Meat is back in at Chipotle!!

Tuesday: Take Away Sushi from Sushi Plantation!

Driving a few hundred miles a day really makes you want to stay home.  Normally I don't like sushi at home at all, but alas, tired body insisted.  Gavin was so sweet to go pick up all of our favorites!  Not as good as in person, but so nice to have some time at home.

Wednesday: Worst Meal Ever: Tomato and cheese sandwich in Palm Springs.

All I wanted was some Ash Wednesday friendly meat free fare.  I gps'ed it and figured Italian would be safe: cheese pizza?  Nope... this place didn't have much to offer.  I should have just left, but instead I stayed for the most awkward meal ever surrounded by a less friend version of cheers who were all already blasted, at 3:15 in the afternoon...  I only got one meal on Wednesday and it wasn't pleasant. 

Thursday:  Veggie Nachos with Alyssa at Taco Mesa

Thursday I was exhausted again, so I made a baked potato.
Luckily, Alyssa was kind enough to invite me over to Taco Mesa to pick on some veggie nachos later in the evening!

Friday: Pre-softball Carbs- Spaghetti

Gavin joined a softball league, so to get him ready for his game, I made some carbs!

That basil leaf is the first yield from this seasons AeroGarden!  Expect more fresh herbs in my cooking starting in the next few weeks!

Saturday: Mexican Food at the JSerra Knights Poker Tournament. 

Gavin and I spent last night at a charity poker tournament through our church.  More on that later.

In the spirit of Movie Date #1, we had some wine and cheese on the balcony before we went.  Only instead of the 24th floor overlooking Melbourne, it was the 2nd floor overlooking Amberly Lane.  And it couldn't have been more beautiful.

Sunday: Sorta homemade butter chicken

I have been craving Indian food pretty much all the time lately.  So when I came across a butter chicken sauce at World Market, I was quite excited! It was easy.  I just stir-fried the chicken then simmered in the sauce for a while.  I would certainly make it again.

Next week is shaping up to be a doozy if my grocery shopping is any indication....
