Yoiks!… and This Week’s Menu

I kinda forgot about this whole food blogging thing. Life has been crazy, and I’ve been lucky to get a good dinner out once or twice a week the past few months. However, with a new apartment that has a wonderful kitchen (i.e., 3x’s more counter space than the old one AND a dishwasher), I’ve been inspired to cook some good stuff in the upcoming weeks.

I picked up a new cookbook today in honor of the new kitchen, so most of this week’s menu comes from The Illustrated Kitchen Bible.

So here’s what’s for dinner this week:

  1. French Dip Sandwiches and Potato Chips
  2. Fettucine Alfredo and a Mixed Green Salad
  3. Chicken Schnitzel, Green Beans, and Potato Salad
  4. Swedish Meatballs and Fresh Broccoli (with ranch dressing, knowing my husband!)

Not much on the menu this week. I always leave one night to eat out, but I also have ballet class one night and some friends are having a pizza party for their daughter’s first birthday. I’m also planning on making Rice Krispie treats after a discussion on the What’s Cooking board the other day.
