Birthday Week Menu Lineup

Apparently, since I surprised Jamie this past weekend with a day at Bandimere Speedway to watch drag racing and jet engines, followed by a night at Arrowwood Manor Bed and Breakfast, I've started what he calls his "birthday week", since his birthday is not actually until next weekend.  Which is really his cute way of saying that I should cook dinner every night this week and give him back rubs.  :)

We take turns every week planning the menu and making the grocery list, and this was his week to do the planning.  I also have a little chalkboard in the kitchen where I write the menu for the week--he likes to tease me about the chalkboard, but I think he secretly finds my organization endearing.

Monday:  Spaghetti with Ground Turkey Marinara sauce (which has now evolved into Linguine with a Sweet and Savory Sauce (with lean ground turkey, baby spinach and raisins--stay tuned for more on this...)
Tuesday: Fish and Sauteed Veggies
Wednesday: Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Thursday: Shrimp Tacos
Friday:  Movie and Dinner Out
Saturday:  Sushi Night at home with some friends

I also need to make something for a potluck at work on Thursday, as well as a birthday dessert for Jamie, which we'll have on Saturday night.  So I've got a lot to plan this week, but I'm looking forward to it!

So, while I make pasta tonight, Jamie's supposed to be deciding on a dessert for this weekend--I'm looking forward to seeing what he picks...
