Menu Friday

Happy Friday!

It's been a crazy busy week for me, so I apologize for being a bit absent on the blog this week. My client has a huge event going on today and tomorrow, and whew -- it's been a lot of planning! :) 

Anyway, Angelica is getting married tomorrow (!!!), so I'm working from home this morning and am driving to Austin this afternoon. (Speaking of, I really need to finish packing...) I can't wait to stop in Waco for some Common Grounds tomorrow night on my way back to Dallas! 

Moving on to Menu Friday.

Sunday:
Key West grilled chicken kebabs, steamed vegetables and herbed chicken cous cous 

This was very good and insanely easy. I did have to add more lime juice and soy sauce, however, and I left out the cilantro. We will definitely be making these again; they're great for summer! 


Monday:
Chicken Tamale Casserole, black beans and Spanish rice 

As I've mentioned before, this is a staple in our house and we both just love it. It's very filling, and hello, it's Cooking Light


Tuesday:
I was busy working and making a meal for my step-cousin and step-cousin-in-law, so Brandon grilled salmon and topped it with an easy sauce: butter, white wine and dill. {I love that my husband cooks!} 

We'd eaten some appetizers, so I didn't serve anything to go along with the salmon. 


Wednesday:
My step-cousin and step-cousin-in-law said they'd take a "rain check" on my meal (that's another story for another day...) so I gave the meal that I had cooked and schlepped to work away to our office secretary and then we ate the second chicken spaghetti I had cooked, along with a salad and my favorite Sister Schubert's dinner rolls


...I'd also made them a buttermilk pie {and doubled the recipe so we'd have one}, so I freezed the one that I made for them {we'll take it to my in-law's on Mother's Day} and we each had a slice of the one I made for us. 

Buttermilk pie is my absolute fave and seriously, it's so easy. It's not too sweet -- which is exactly why I love it -- and it reminds me of my grandmother. Let me know if you want the recipe; it's a great standby in our house and I've made it for numerous gatherings: friends' dinners at our house, Easter, New Year's, etc. 


I need to jump on a client call and then get crackin' on packin' (and finishing folding clothes), so happy weekend!

Laura and Angelica, I can't wait to see you! 

xoxo
