I am late with dinners this week because we had yet another four day weekend and I was busy playing Barbie Goes To The Doctor For A Routine Checkup And Gets Abducted By Unicorns Who Somehow Have Medical Degrees.

Also, I strongly considered seeing whether I could get away with not making dinner at all this week. But alas, I gave in.

We are going out three nights this week though, so that’s pretty close to just not cooking at all, right? One night, we are going out with friends and another night we are going out for my birthday dinner (Mexican food! Margaritas!) and another night we are going to try this local pizza place a bunch of my friends have been raving about.

Here’s what’s on the menu.

Dinners for the Week of February 20-February 27:

Note: I will be making mine with shrimp. This is my all-time favorite salad. The marinade for the chicken is SO GOOD. I like to drizzle it all over the salad. YUM.

Note: My husband asked for this specifically, and I aim to please!

Note: We have some leftover bell peppers from last week’s red curry, so fire fry it is! I totally screwed up the spice ratio last time I made this, so my husband made me promise to be more judicious in my spicing this week.

Note: These were SO GOOD when we made them a few weeks ago. We aren’t going out for dinner ON my birthday, so we’ll have these instead. Who says I can’t celebrate my birthday for multiple days?

 

Instead of birthday cake, I asked my husband if he would make this magical lemon pudding cake he made a few years ago. (NINE YEARS AGO. It has been way too long since I’ve eaten this magical cake.) I do not know if he has a recipe for it squirreled away somewhere, but it certainly looked a lot like this recipe from The Country Cook. (Although I don’t remember him using actual cake and pudding mix? But then again, NINE year ago.) Maybe it was this one, from Epicurious? Ooooh – or he could make little individual cakes, with this recipe from Once Upon a Chef! Well, I suppose I will leave it up to him. I’m pretty excited about it, though.

 

What are you up this week, Internet? Eating-wise or other?
