I think I may have mentioned this, but I’m going to be out of town for the next week so not a lot of cooking will get done. Well, not by me, anyway. I’ve been thinking of a few dinner ideas I can suggest to my family while I’m gone. Things that don’t require a recipe and can be thrown together quickly (it’s not that they can’t cook but they do it so rarely, it’s best not to get too fancy). But, for the most part, they’re on their own. While my work trips aren’t vacation, I do think of them as vacation from meal planning, cooking and cleanup!
Today, I’ll be making country ribs in the crockpot, so they’ll have those for leftover, but that’s the extent of my cooking for the week. Otherwise, it’s all restaurants for me. I thought I’d share some of the places I have reservations this week.
Wednesday night, I’ll be taking a group of authors to dinner at Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse. The menu makes me swoon.
Thursday night, it’s a business dinner at M and I’m excited to check out this restaurant. The website makes it seem very alluring.
For lunch one day Jane, Sarah and I will all be visiting ZenCha Tea Salon. This restaurant specializes in a soothing, Zen atmosphere and superior teas. It’s the perfect restaurant for the three of us to lunch at together.
Other places I’ll be eating are the hotel restaurant (haha, always exciting!), Buca di Beppo and possibly this Mongolian BBQ, which I’ve suggested as a lunch option. Of course, since I’ll be eating out for nearly a week, there will be many more additions to this list (including our Friday night dinner option, which hasn’t been determined yet), but I’ll have to wait and see what it turns out to be!
What’s on your menu this week?
