Announcing Monday’s Poll Winner, plus this Week’s Menu

We have a winner from Monday’s poll! The next entry will be the start of a series where I’ll pair my favorite TV Shows with three-course meals. Shows to be paired are: The Sopranos, True Blood, and High Maintenance. Check in this weekend for the post!

Now, onto this week’s menu.

Having already posted a very long entry earlier this week, I’m going to keep this one short. A few factors have gone into planning the meals for this week:

  1. Hubby and I ate an insane amount of food while we were in Maine, and, in particular, consumed a great deal of meat. So, we wanted to keep our meals light, flavorful, and satisfying.
  2. Our vacation helped to remind us that we love seafood, so I picked a dish with shrimp, and another with salmon.
  3. I wanted at least one dish that is easy to take to work as lunch.
  4. As much as I love cooking, I wanted things that were easy and quick to make, especially after that culinary marathon in Maine.

So, without further ado, here is the menu:

Dinner: Chipotle shrimp w/ rice, beans, grilled corn, and a salad

Dinner: Egg noodle pappardelle w/ peas, lemon, butter, mint, and grana, and a salad

Lunches: Roast beef, caramelized onions, asiago, fig jam, and mustard sandwiches

This week is short since we’ll be going to NJ to visit my father over the weekend.

As always, if any of these meals look particularly interesting to you, let me know in a comment and I’ll be sure to provide the recipe in a later post!
