Weekly Menu 12.8.13 - 12.14.13 (I'm Back!)

I'm back!

Sorry for just falling off the face of the earth for the past two weeks with nary an explanation or comment; very shady of me.  It's just that I have been all consumed with my professional life (the job that keeps the twinkle lights on), leaving me with very little energy or creativity for anything else.  

I haven't completely slacked off - Scott has had plenty of food to eat, King has a new Christmas collar and plenty of bully sticks, the house is decorated for Christmas, and the workouts have proceeded as scheduled (I even have evidence) - I just slacked off on this little hobby.  My bad.     

Exhibit A: 

Exhibit B:

Exhibit C:

There is no evidence of the workouts - you'll just have to trust me on that one.

On a somewhat related to the Christmas side note, as I've mentioned before, I am not a baker, and the incessant stream of magazine worthy Christmas baked goods on Pinterest is causing me to (1) feel wholly inadequate, and (2) have a ravenous craving for all things chocolate.  

Make it stop.

On to the weekly menu:

Sunday: Braciole inspired by Giada De Laurentiis (recipe here)

Tuesday:  Chicken, Sweet Potato and Kale Crock Pot Soup with Grilled Cheeses (recipe to come)

Wednesday:  Stuffed Cuban Pork Tenderloin from Cooking Light (recipe here)

Thursday:  Lucky Game Day Chili from the freezer

Friday:  Grilled Grouper with Tomato, White Wine and Caper Sauce (recipe to come)

Saturday:  Dinner and "Night of a Thousand Candles" at Brookgreen Gardens with the cousin and her man.

Hope y'all had a fabulous weekend!
