Menu Plan Monday

June 18, 2012

Now that my schedule has calmed down after planning and executing my dream wedding, it’s time to get back to cooking and blogging!  I’m not sure who is more excited, myself, because I’ve missed the kitchen (leading up to the wedding I jumped from one diet to the next, clear liquids, Atkins, etc. so my appliances have been dormant for a bit) or my hubby, because he was on his own and pretty much lived off hot dogs and sandwiches the past three months.  Sorry babe!

Anywho, I have a few things going on this week, but am excited to put together my first weekly menu plan in awhile! 

#SundaySupper:  Father’s Day Dinner of Minestrone, Lasagna and Garlic Bread.  Dessert was a Strawberry Buttercream Cake from The German Bakery

Monday: Leftovers

Tuesday: Junior League Social at Square Pub (and my one month anniversary!). It’s appropriate we’ll be here since this is where my wedding “after-party” was held.  Their menu goes above and beyond the typical bar food.  (Hint: anything with Hatch Chiles is ah-mazing.)

Wednesday: Dinner at a friend’s house, menu TBD

Thursday:  Fried Green Tomato Sammies w/ Sweet Potato Fries (I made Fried Green Tomato BLTs last week and they were so good, I thought I’d expand on the basic recipe and add a few more ingredients.)  Also, super-excited to use my new mandolin to make home-made fries. 

Friday: I’m headed to Athens, GA for a Junior League Conference for the weekend, which means I’ll be eating at some of the best restaurants (in my opinion) around!  I’m hoping to hit The National, Speakeasy and The Grit…not to mention see some good music, as it’s AthFest weekend. 

Besides getting back into the swing of menu planning, grocery shopping, cooking and researching new recipes, I’m excited to announce that “The Hand” will be getting a whole new look in the very near future.  Stay tuned for updates on the big reveal!
