On the Menu Monday (MPM) - Week 8 - 2015

We had a really nice, busy Valentine's Weekend! Friday our neighbors from across the street and kitty corner from us came over for a little happy hour. I made some sun dried tomato meatballs with a chipotle sauce and put out some hummus and tzatziki with pita chips as well as an assortment of cheese and crackers. It was fun to catch up with neighbors who we don't normally see during the winter months. 

Saturday we had lunch at a new burger place that opened up near us, Freddy's Steakburgers and Custard. It was really good, and fun to have a new place to try. We thought it was a lot like Smashburger or Five Guys, but I loved the custard. 

After we met up with friends to tour a local distillery, really interesting and fun to get the insight into something local that seems to really be catching on. Can't wait for these craft cocktail rooms to open! 

After we went back to their house for dinner, a little penne ala vodka with a really nice salad! Great way to spend Valentine's with friends. 

Sunday was a busy day for us too, we knocked off our grocery shopping after planning out our meals for the week. We have friends that are starting to look for a new house, and they are thinking they would like to be on a local lake. It was so much fun to check these houses out and I think we found one that they will be putting an offer in on. I had serious kitchen envy, this kitchen, along with a butlers kitchen was to die for, so huge, absolutely loved it!

 This week, we have a little Fat Tuesday planned, and we are also trying to catch the last couple of movies that we want to take in before the Oscars on Sunday.
