What I'm cooking
Peter and I have decided to try to save money and eat out less. Plus one of my new years resolutions that became a post graduation goal was to cook more. I love cooking and I love wearing my cute anthropologie apron and feeling like a housewife. Our plan is to not eat dinner out on the week days. Here's how this week went...
Monday- went to Chicora Alley, one of our favorite restaurants that we hadn't been to in ages.
Tuesday- started slow cooking a brisket, but instead went out to dinner for a friends 21st birthday. Birthday dinners are an ok exception to the eating out rule. I put the brisket in the fridge to save it for the next day.
Wednesday- Peter, sister and I had a delicious brisket, mashed potatoes, and asparagus with parmesan cheese (not really a summery meal but still delicious!)
Tonight- I am going to try a new recipe that I saw on Giada At Home and thought it looked so good: Trenette with Eggplant and Basil Pesto. Trenette is a pasta tube like penne so I'll probably just use that.
Friday- Tuna and Avocado Salad. This is probably our favorite thing to make, and Peter actually does help me make it, he sears the tuna. It's so fresh and light and a perfect summer dish-I highly recommend this recipe!
I'll let you know how the recipe goes tonight and maybe post pictures!
