I don’t know what the weather has been like by you, but it has been glorious here the past few days. I have been taking full advantage of that before we enter into the land of the frozen tundra for the next several months.
In My Box is hosting this week’s gluten-free menu swap with the them of “Dutch Ovens”. I don’t have anything on this week’s menu that would utilize my dutch oven, but I do occasionally use mine to make pot roast with potatoes & carrots. With the weather getting colder, it may be time to break it out & cook up a great roast!
Sunday – Rotisserie Chicken, sweet potato hash browns, steamed veggies & salad
Monday – Chicken/Eggplant Parmesan, brown rice/quinoa pasta, broccoli & salad
Tuesday – Honey Baked Lentils & spaghetti squash & salad
Wednesday – Filet mignon, baked potatoes w/Oikos, roasted asparagus & salad
Friday – Breakfast for dinner
Saturday – Leftovers
Last night Aaron & I went out to celebrate our anniversary at Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse. What an amazing dinner. The chef was extremely helpful & knowledgeable about the gluten-free diet. We both ordered off the Sea & Shore 3-Course Menu. My dinner included a beefsteak tomato & onion salad (sans onion) with hard smoked mozzarella cheese & balsamic vinaigrette, 7 oz medium rare filet mignon, Colossal Sea Scallops with lemon citrus sauce, broccolini and creme brulee for dessert. I also had a nice glass of pinot noir & syrah. Aaron had the same thing, but had a Caesar salad & crab cakes for his salad & seafood. He opted for the cheesecake for dessert. We came home & watched Orphan. Talk about a freaky movie! Yikes!
