Every Sunday morning after coffee has been drunk and the newspaper read, I pull a few cookbooks off the shelf and make a menu for the week. K helps me choose which recipes to try. Together we make a grocery list and then head out early to shop before the store gets crowded. Lately we've ended up at the grocery at the same time that the firefighters make their weekly food run. It was really cute to see so many firefighters picking out Valentine's Day cards and buying chocolates today. It made me laugh to see the contrast of those tough guys in uniform holding such lovey-dovey cards.

This is the menu we made for this week:
Spinelli's pizza (part of--but definitely not the winner of--the Great Pizza Challenge!)
Monday and Tuesday
Mushroom tortellini soup + spinach salad
Wednesday and Thursday
Spinach rice casserole
Baked sweet potatoes with black beans

What's on your menu this week? Anything you're really looking forward to? I'm most excited about the soup and salad night.
