What's for Dinner: January 5 - January 11

Looking for dinner inspiration? Here's what I've planned for dinner at our house this week!

It's already Sunday. Which means tomorrow is Monday. And given how my Saturday went, I'm just not ready for Monday.

Let me back up to Friday.

I had taken the day off from work and signed up for a cooking class at Sur La Table to make progress on my 40 Before 40 list. (Actually, it was a baking class about Rustic European Breads.) I was so inspired, I decided to pick up a few things in the store afterward to help with my baking endeavors at home. As I drove home, I started thinking about what I wanted to bake the next time I have some free time over the weekend.

This brings us to Saturday.

Stephen and I had errands to run, so we packed the kids up in the car and headed out for the morning. While at HomeGoods, I stumbled across something I had been searching for for a long time... storage for our root vegetables. But when I went to pay for it, I discovered my credit card was missing.

Guess where it was... That's right... At Sur La Table. I left it there after buying my post-class goodies.

Instead of going home and working on the rest of my to-do list, I had to shift gears. I dropped the family off, wolfed down some lunch, and drove all the way back to Sur La Table to pick up my credit card. I say "all the way back" because Su La Table is more than an hour away from our house... so I had to spend a lot of unexpected time in the car yesterday.

Which brings us to Sunday.

I have to try and make up some of the time I lost yesterday. Meal prep, laundry, putting the Christmas decorations away... Lots to do!

While I go tackle my lists, I hope you keep reading to see what I've planned for dinner at our house this week!
