Greetings! I hope all of you had a fabulous week last week. Mike and I were off most of the week enjoying a small staycation. It rained off and on all week so we were only able to get out on day trips two of the days. The other days we hung around the house, took in a couple of movies and ran errands. It beat working!
One of the things we did was check out Bergsbaken Sunflower Farm. I have been wanting to take sunflower pictures and ran across the festival on Facebook. Since it was one of the nice days we headed up to Cecil to check it out. It was pretty low key but seeing that many sunflowers was neat and I definitely got a bunch of pictures.
We also went over to Spring Green where we checked out the House on the Rock. There were some neat aspects of it, but I was disappointed. They did have a nice Oriental garden as well as the Infinity Room. The best part of the trip was having lunch at Freddy Valentine’s in Spring Green. If you are in the area and are looking for a great place to eat, that would be it!
As you know, we are a Plated.com family. However, our son has recently been ordering from Hello Fresh. He had a couple of free weeks to give away so he gave me one. I choose to use it this week, I was all excited about saving money on groceries. That is, of course, until I found out I was a bozo and am also getting a box of Plated as well. Oh well, I guess I’ll be able to do a side by side comparison as to the differences in the two meal delivery systems. My guess is that a couple of the meals will be carried over into next week.
I don’t even know why I got a box this week considering how busy I am. Tuesday I’ll be getting home late because I have a senior photo shoot after work. Wednesday I’m planning on trying out a restorative yoga class in town and there will be at least one dinner out with friends. Sometimes I think if my head wasn’t screwed on it would fall off!
Oh well, without further ado, here’s the menu.
Thai Pork Stir Fry (from Hello Fresh)
Gremolata Strip Steak (from Hello Fresh)
The Pat LaFrieda Burger (from Hello Fresh)
Chicken Shawarma Salad (from Plated)
Greek Lamb Lettuce Wraps (From Plated)
Jerk Chicken (from Plated)
As you can see, I don’t have a lot of recipes to share this week given we’re getting them all delivered! However, I will be sharing my recipe from Grannie’s Refrigerator Pickles later this week. I used fresh from the garden cucumbers (well, a local farmer’s garden) and made my family very happy
What are you serving this week?
