However, last week was a bit of a bust. The pesto and pea pasta that I had made a couple months ago (that Ben loved at the time) literally made him throw up this time. I don't know if it was a rogue spaghetti noodle swallowed wrong, but after one bite it was obvious that he was over it. And in need of a bath.
I also did not check out properly when ordering my produce box, so all of the vegetables I thought were arriving on Wednesday never showed up, which made me have to alter my menu a bit for the remainder of the week.
Throw in my teaching yoga two nights this week, and Greg spending one evening out with a friend, the motivation to cook just wasn't there most nights.
The week wasn't a TOTAL bust though, as the crispy black bean tacos I made were AMAZING. Both Ben and Greg loved them - we will be repeating this one for sure. (We used cheddar, not feta and I added in some of my my homemade guacamole).
As for this week, here is my plan:
Monday: Greg is going to make Chicken Parmesan for himself and Ben on Monday night, because I will be at a wine tasting and work dinner at The Barking Frog for our staff holiday celebration. Dang it ;)
Tuesday: I have an all day staff meeting and Greg has a long day at work, so the plan will be to have my mom throw a Costco lasagna in the oven for us (she will be watching Ben that day) and I'll throw together an arugula salad to go with it when I get home.
Wednesday: Cod and Lemon Orzo Pasta with Asparagus and Tomatoes.
Thursday: BBQ chicken quinoa salad - This recipe calls for BBQ chicken, which I'll make in the crock pot during the day and then toss into the salad that night.
Friday: Cobb Salad Pizza - one of my favorite dishes that my friend Brenna has made for us!
