I am having a serious case of the Mondays. My older brother and I ran the Heroes 1/2 Marathon (picture above is before the race started, wearing the shirts I designed in honor of the Boston Marathon victims) in Everett yesterday, and both my brain and body seem to be unable to function properly since. Take last night, for instance, when I left my entire purse at Chipotle and didn’t even realize until 8 AM this morning when I’m on my way out the door for work. Seriously, who does that?
Apparently, I do.
So this week, I’ll be taking it a little easier in the kitchen until I’ve fully recovered from the beating I gave my body yesterday. And in a few days, I’ll probably forget how much I hate running and sign up for the next race.
Without further ado, here is this week’s menu…
Monday: I was too wiped yesterday to have a proper celebratory drink, so…you guessed it — happy hour!
Tuesday: Fish tacos with homemade tortillas. Again. Seriously, these are in my weekly rotation — I can’t get enough. I’ve come up with some new variations of salsa and guacamole too, so I’ll be sure to share.
Wednesday: Pecan-crusted chicken wraps with strawberry honey mustard — planning to double the recipe and use for lunch leftovers.
Thursday: Salmon with blueberry BBQ sauce — I never quite got around to this last week. Oops.
Friday: Cinco de Mayo celebration at work!
Finally, some Monday morning inspiration for you:
