On the Menu Monday (MPM) - Week 5 - 2015

Nothing to report from the last week and weekend other than the fact that I was recovering from the crud that was going around. I came down with it last Monday and I really struggled to recover from it. I did not do any cooking or eating last week at all. All of our meal plans went out the window. The only thing I did was to put a pork butt into the crock pot and made Kahlua Pork, I figured that would be good for Scott to be able to have different ways. I realized though that if I wasn't eating he didn't really eat too much either. At least this week we will be able to use the leftovers in different ways. 
My Stellacat didn't leave my side pretty much the whole week. She is such a good companion.
We did get out on Friday and see American Sniper. Scott had been dying to see it. What a great film, so well done and a great story, I am so glad that Chris Kyle was able to put his story on paper before we lost him. Clint Eastwood did a fabulous job with the material and Bradley Cooper really brought justice to the role. At the end, in our sold out theater, the entire theater clapped. 
Saturday I thought I was feeling well enough to get out of the house. I should have stayed home. We did go to Total Wine though on Saturday. I really wanted to get out of the house, and we had not been there yet. I ran into a high school classmate of mine, who has changed careers and is one of their wine experts. It was fun to talk to him and catch up. I can't wait to try some of the wines we picked up.  They have a huge selection and great prices. 
I am looking forward to being able to get some things accomplished this week! I feel like I lost a whole week!
Plans - Catch up on all of the stuff that I wanted to get to last week! First up, clean out my sock drawers! I know, SO exciting!
Breakfast and Lunch - Bacon, egg and toast, salad with some kahlua pork
Dinner - Gyros - we did not get to have these last week! 
Plans - Third time is the charm. We have tried to go to the movies for the last two Tuesdays, I am hoping we can really make it this time! We still have a few movies that have been nominated that we want to see.
Breakfast and Lunch - Bacon and egg, bbq pork on tortilla
Dinner -Lettuce wrapped hamburgers
Plans - I need to get our spice cabinet cleaned out, so that will definitely get tackled.
Breakfast and Lunch - Bacon and egg, leftovers
Dinner - Walleye (seriously, I am getting sick of seeing this on our meal plan week after week and it seems to never happen, this week it WILL).
Plans - we have plans for a wine dinner with friends at Al Vento which is one of my favorite Italian restaurants from our old neighborhood. Can't wait for this! I am also getting a much needed haircut and spruce up! This is always nice!
Breakfast and Lunch - Bacon and egg, leftovers
Dinner - Al Vento
Plans - Hoping to try to get to another movie and grab a bite out. 
Breakfast and Lunch - Bacon and egg, leftovers
Dinner - hoping out
Plans - Really looking forward to a spa day with two of my girlfriends. Massage, facials, spa pedicures and lunch.
Breakfast and Lunch - Spa salads!
Dinner - We are going out to celebrate Scott's mom's 75th birthday with his family.
Plans - Super Bowl Sunday. My sister is hosting us again. We are having a chili and wing cook off. I am doing chili and Scott is doing wings. I haven't decided what kind of chili to do yet, debating on a white chicken chili or a traditional red bean chili. Game time decision I guess.
Breakfast and Lunch - light, we will be eating lots of good stuff later on. 
Dinner - chili, wings and good food!
