I've learned a lot of different things from my friends.
From Beth in Spain, to correctly position a street map.
From Maria, the difference between dishing and dissing.
From Julie, to have a boundary. Or at least try.
From Beth in California, that you can count on some people forever.
From Adrienne, to never go out looking like crap.
From Lorraine, to plan a weekly menu.
If you're not on this list, don't be offended, I've learned things from you too. And I could continue, but those are just the ones that popped into my head.
Anyway, Lorraine (Here's the Thing) also has a food blog, Here's the Dish. But she's been super busy lately. Turning 50, starting a new business, receiving important out of town visitors. And while she usually posts her weekly dinner menu on her food blog, she hasn't in a couple of weeks. So I'm posting mine. Because she's the one who taught me how and two of the recipes on this week's menu are hers.
Thursday - Black bean and beef burritos
Friday - Apricot chicken with almonds
Saturday - White bean and sausage soup
Sunday - Boeuf carottes, which is basically like a daube
Monday - Tandoori chicken
Tuesday - Sage and garlic pork tenderloin
Wednesday - Beef Stroganoff
There is no vegetarian night at our house, Husband would seriously say, "Where's the beef?"
You think I'm kidding, but when we were dating he'd show up at my apartment for dinner (which I was cooking and which was always vegetarian because I was one at the time) with a couple of slices of ham.
And we don't eat a lot of fish because I'm just not sure about the whole mercury thing.
