The rest of the week, though, is decidedly vegetarian, with just a little dairy here and there, like the cheese sandwiches tomorrow, blue cheese in the grits on Monday, and cream in the korma on Thursday. It's all about balance, right? ; )
After planning out this menu, I noticed that it's going to be a fairly noodle-heavy week. I didn't intend that; those are just recipes that sounded good, and hey, that's a good thing because noodles are cheap! We just adopted the most adorable dog on Monday, which was a significant financial outlay by the time we paid for food, supplies, a crate, toys, and so forth, so a cheap menu this week will be a good thing.
And as long as I'm on the subject, here's a picture of our sweet dog, Gretel. Isn't she cute??? She's 5 months old, a nice medium-sized dog at about 25 lbs, and she's so well behaved and sweet. We are so smitten! We ran into some people from her animal shelter at Petco today, and they were so excited to see her. We didn't know this when we adopted her Monday, but she was scheduled to be euthanized this past Thursday, so if we hadn't adopted her, odds are she wouldn't be alive right now. I'm so glad it worked out for all of us!
Ok, now for next week's menu:
Sunday - Grilled cheese sandwiches, extreme tots, rainbow jello
Monday - Chinese five spice pork chops, blue cheese grits, applesauce
Tuesday - Asian Noodle Salad
Thursday - Vegetarian korma and flat bread
