Weekly Menu 5/2 - 5/7/11

It's birthday week around chez Good Appetite. Today is Matt's but we went out last night to celebrate. He chose to go to Manny's a very old school steakhouse in downtown Minneapolis. We're talking one of those places where they bring around a cart showing you the cuts of beef before you order.

The kind of place that offers a plate of bacon as an appetizer. We went with the lobster cakes instead. Here's a few more not so great iPhone photos of the night.

That is the free birthday dessert! Crazy, huge! We took home a large doggie bag so those leftovers will show up in some meals this week. My birthday is tomorrow but we'll wait until Friday to celebrate it with sushi!

On to Menu Planning Monday...

Taco Hotdish - we had leftover taco makings and; an idea....

Steak and Lentil Salad

Creamed Spinach Pasta - using the leftovers from Matt's b-day dinner

Salmon Tikka - inspired by Jamie Oliver

Chicken Breast perhaps with a cilantro cream sauce

Happy Birthday Matt. That is one seriously huge dessert. Maybe like a weeks calories!

Happy Birthday to matt. I have never been to a place that showed you the cut of beef before ordering Very cool!

Um...I know it feels more like March than May, but the calendar says it is May, so you might want to change your heading from "Weekly Menu 3/2 to 3/7/11" to "Weekly Menu 5/2 to 5/7/11." I can totally see how you could make that mistake considering how cold it is outside!

Edith - That darn blogger & its automatic fill-in caught me! Plus a little blurry from last nights feast.

Happy birthday Matt! My birthday is coming up, so I need to start thinking where I want to celebrate it, maybe Manny's? :D

Happy belated birthday to Matt! That's a free birthday dessert?! Oh my, that alone would be worth a drive up. :)
