Leftover smorgasbord

We have been trying to do curbside pickup to help support some of our favorite restaurants.  On Saturday we ordered a family fried chicken meal that included enough Mac n Cheese for a family of 8.  It also included potato salad.  We have leftover potatoes and carrots from Easter.  I said to Keith we just need some more protein.  As it happened, yesterday was our celebration of Samantha’s adoption day.  We normally celebrate with a restaurant dinner so we adapted to curbside from Stony River Steakhouse.  Our 3 dinners provided enough leftover steak (in combination with some leftover fried chicken) to solve our protein need.  So tonight is a mix of leftovers.  After our eccentric dinner, I handed Samantha a pizza cookbook and Keith a salad cookbook.  So our next few nights look like this:


Sausage and sweet onion pizza


Seared tuna with Asian slaw

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
