The day I've been dreading is finally here. My time off from work is coming to an end, and tomorrow, I'll be back at it.

I didn't do everything I wanted to do... I expected that. I'm grateful that I had time to do some reading, some follow-through on a 40 Before 40 item, and some work on the house.

Another week off would be great, but I'm [somewhat] recharged and ready to go back to work. The next few weeks are going to be busy as the school I work for prepares to reopen... and as our daughter gets ready to start kindergarten. 

Menu plan, don't fail me now!

A Week of Dinners: August 2 - August 8

  • Sunday: Grilled Beef Sirloin Steaks with Fiery Pomegranate Sauce, Roasted Broccoli, and Jasmine Rice

    Writing a blog post about this sauce made me remember one of our family's all-time favorite meals. So I made sure to have all the ingredients we need to have that meal tonight. A fun farewell to my time off from work.

  • Monday: Pasta Salad with Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Carrots, Bell Peppers, Broccoli, and Hard-Boiled Eggs

    The goal is to have this batch of pasta salad last a few days. But we love pasta salad in this house, so I'll be happy if there's enough for Leftover Night.

  • Tuesday: Leftovers

    I switched our Leftover Night to Tuesday this week from the usual Wednesday since I'll be working a little late. This will help Stephen get the kids fed without needing to cook anything from scratch.

  • Wednesday: Linguine with Shrimp Scampi

  • ThursdaySpinach and Gruyere Quiche with Simple Home Fries

  • Friday: Pizza with Eggplant, Grape Tomatoes, and Fresh Mozzarella 

  • Saturday: Take Out

What do you have planned for dinner at your house this week?
