Happy Sunday! Hope you've been having a great weekend.
We had so much fun last night with our friends, Drea and Cory. We snacked on some delicious food and drank some wonderful wine.
I roasted garlic yesterday (best smell ever!) because I made this last night: Brussels Sprouts Crostini. You guys! Try it immediately.
I also made this Caramelized Onion Dip from Food & Wine. Again, simply amazing! I don't think I've ever made a recipe from Food & Wine that wasn't absolutely delicious.
I sipped on one of my absolute favorite Chardonnays: 2008 Musque Clone from Buena Vista. So buttery and smooth!
It was such a fun night!
We met another couple, Cara and Joe, for brunch this morning. We planned on eating at Plow, but it was a two hour wait! We were all very ravenous, so we decided to go somewhere else to avoid waiting so long. We found Aperto just a few blocks from Plow and had breakfast there. They served pineapple coconut muffins before our main entrees, and the muffins were so amazing! Another great time with good friends.
************I just finished meal planning for this week and thought I'd share the line-up. I meal plan every week, so I'm thinking about blogging our meals every Sunday -- maybe to provide a little inspiration!
FYI: I try to plan three meals a week and make enough servings that we can enjoy leftovers 1-2 times a week. Cook once, eat twice is the way to go!
Monday: Balsamic Pork Chops, baked sweet potatoes + salad
Tuesday: Mushroom-Herb Spaghetti + salad
Wednesday: Three-Bean Vegetarian Chili
Friday: Leftovers (or frozen pizza, eggs, something simple, etc.)
