Our Meal Plan and a Sleepover

July 25th, 2015 at 08:58 pm

The meal plan for this week:

- turkey burgers with roasted mini peppers
- crustless quiche
- tostadas
- chicken piccata
- gambino crime family pasta
- big salad with cheddar bay biscuits (copycat recipe!)
- grilled cheese and tomato soup

We have two girls coming for a sleepover tonight and F requested turkey burgers and roasted peppers for dinner. We'll barbecue at the pool and the girls can go in and swim, play foosball, etc. Ice cream sundaes back at home for dessert. We just went to the store to get more sprinkles.

    Gambino crime family pasta sounds interesting, what is in this?

    I call it that! It's actually a modification of a Jamie Oliver recipe... Gamberino is shrimp in Italian and every time I would accidentally say gambino! It's a quick recipe, too!

    16 oz spaghetti
    3 good glugs of olive oil
    2 cloves garlic minced
    1 or 2 (might as well do 2) dried red chilies, seeded and crumbled
    8 oz. peel raw large shrimp
    slightly less than 1/2 c white wine
    3+ heaping T sundried tomatoes blitzed in a blender
    zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
    1 handful of arugula
    Cook spaghetti in salted water
    Put olive oil in large frying pan
    Toss in garlic and chiles
    As garlic begins to color, add shrimp and sautee 1 min.
    Add wine and tomato puree and simmer a few more mins.
    Drain pasta in colander and put in a big bowl
    Add lemon juice and arugula
    Add the lemon zest and a little more arugula if you want
