I Love Food Menu Monday

If you've been reading me for a while, you know a few things about me. I am bit scatter-brained, I leave my grammar abilities at the door and I love fresh, seasonal organic food!

I could honestly talk about food all day. I love to try new colorful veggies and fruits. I sometimes spend far too long chatting with the fish monger about when the fish truck comes in and when will it be Copper River season (seriously counting the days til early May for that fish). I love trying out new cheeses with different breads, crackers and spreads. 

I love doing the menu Mondays here. Before I only made sure to make at least one new dish a week; now I have branched out to at least two.  Occasionally, I make something and I hate it; but every once in a while I make a dish the whole family just devours. And I love it.

So to celebrate fab cuisine of spring, here is this week's menu for my always brave family!

Monday: Soy Marinated Grilled Chicken on Baby Spinach

Tuesday: Steelhead Trout with Roasted Asparagus

Wednesday: Eggplant Parmesan with Escarole (sauteed in olive oil with sliced garlic)

Thursday: Coq Au Vin (not the real thing--not enough hours in my day but a tasty faux version)

Friday: Sarah's birthday celebration--pizza--no, I am not making this one :)


Wishing you all a wonderful week filled with fabulous meals :)

Happy birthday to Sarah this Friday!
Your kids are such good eaters, my boys can be frightened to try anything new.
