I posted a menu on our new chalkboard wall in the kitchen for my husband. He posted in on Facebook. People started asking for the recipes… so I decided it was a good time to pick up the blog again. Some friends and I are starting to get together on Monday nights to cook some dishes to have in our fridge all week, so I will in turn post the recipes for all! I have been doing grain and vegetable salad type dishes that you can just add some grilled chicken or beef (or tofu!) to if you want to make it a full meal.
