Menu Monday

This weekend we had friends staying with us from Friday until Sunday. Our small apartment was packed to the brim with friends, and I loved every second of it. However, we spent the entire weekend eating junk (3 pizza's in 2 days, hot dogs, cinnamon rolls, bagels, cookies, queso....you get the idea?) and drank our body weight in alcohol. Mix this with hitting the bed around 3am all weekend, it was like college all over again.

Now it's time to make up for all of those bad choices I made this weekend.


Sunday: Spaghetti Squash

Have you ever had this? It is amazing, I highly, highly recommend it. It's around 7 dollars for a medium/large squash and will serve 4 adults.

This is what it looks like.

1. Stick the squash in the microwave for around 6-8 minutes
2. Cute the squash right in half (it's going to be really hot. Let it cool for a few minutes or hold the sqush with a towel you don't mind getting dirty)
3. Remove the seeds and center goop of the squash. Just like what you do with a pumpkin
4. Then take your fork and fork the sides, you will produce noodle like spaghetti.

Treat as you would pasta. Add sauce, veggies, meat and voila!

Monday: Taco Salad/Garbage Salad
Base is salad and spinach. Then I throw in everything I can -- tomatos, onions, black olive, black bean, ground turkey, cheese, avacado, garbanzo beans, cheese, peppers, etc. Toss with a spicy salsa.

Tuesday: Goat Cheese Chicken

Wednesday: Work BBQ

Thursday: The Violet Hour
A visit to the COOLEST bar in Chicago. If you are ever in Chicago it is a must.
