Menu Plan Monday

Hello Monday! I am not entirely ready for you, especially after my fabulous Sunday spent with the husband! We went out on a special lunch date to a new place and ate great food. Afterwards, we perused through a pet shop where I had to talk the husband out of buying a hamster. I tell you, he is a sucker for anything cute.

Later we went to do our grocery shopping. Together. I wanted him to see the new Kroger I discovered and he was as excited as I was the first time I stepped through their doors. He marveled over the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables, pausing to pick up mangoes, pears, tomatoes, papayas...

Needless to say, I spent more on groceries than I usually do. Oh husbands. Can't take them anywhere.

On Saturday I spent most of the day figuring out what we were going to eat this week. I had absolutely no inspiration. We've been eating so much chicken that I wasn't in the mood for our usual chicken dishes. I went on a hunt for something different. I found several Mexican inspired dishes and a steak recipe that I've been dying to try. It has been so long since we've had a good steak!

Hummus Crusted Chicken
Tomato & Mozzarella Pizza
Taco Buffet
Skirt Steak with Chimicurri Sauce
Sage-Pecan Buttered Cheese Tortellini

Have a great Monday!
