    Sounds like a nice week!
    Sorry I can’t be of much help for the ‘company’ meal, my inlaws will be coming over in a couple of weeks and I myself have yet to figure out what to fix for dinner that night. Ugh.

    In the meantime here’s the menu for this week:

    Last night: Merguez and chorizo fresh sausages with butter and herb pasta
    Sunday: Chicken Caesar salad
    Monday: Parmesan risotto
    Tuesday: Hoisin chicken with soba noodles
    Wednesday: Couscous and avocado salad (based this recipe here–i replaced the quinoa for couscous, not having quinoa: http://www.finecooking.com/recipes/quinoa-avocado-salad-dried-fruit-toasted-almonds-lemon-cumin-vinaigrette.aspx)
    Thursday: Chicken burgers
    Friday: Take out (per the bf’s request)

    I know, there’s a lot of chicken but I didn’t want to spend 3 hours ‘balancing’ the meats (and thus the meals) on the menu this week and I went with what I felt like eating. If the bf won’t help make the menu (aside from saying ‘what? we’re not eating steak this week?’) when I ask for suggestions, then so be it.

    Also, I’m making triple chocolate brownie cookies (http://www.cookiemadness.net/?p=5659) today. Yum!

    If company’s going to be joining you for breakfast the next day morning, then I’d highly recommend DA Robin’s dish: Far Breton.

    As far as dinner goes: How much do you want to impress them? 🙂 Are they open to all kinds of good? I have some Creole recipes that work really well.

    Here’s my menu…
    Mon: Beef Tips New Potatoes, Broccoli, Banana Pudding
    Tues: Quinoa, Chicken Marsala, Corn & Peas
    Wed: Vegetable Polenta Marscapone Cheese
    Thurs: Indian Nite: Idli, Sambhar
    Fri: Leftovers
    Sat: Indian Nite: Moong Daal, Kala Channa Aloo, Rotis
    Sun: Garbanzo Red Lentil Swiss Chard, Leftovers

    Er, that should be “food”, not “good”.

    For company, why not make steak with crash hot potatoes. I love ANYTHING with crash hot potatoes.

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
