Weekend Recap & Menu Planner

We are having spring like temperatures in RVA this weekend! Yesterday, we spent the morning at the Metro Richmond Zoo. It was a nice but pricey activity...about $55 for all four of us.

Camille's favorite animal is an elephant and Clyde's is a giraffe. It was Clyde's lucky day as he got to feed giraffes. Unfortunately, to the dismay of Camille (and Mimi, her elephant lovey), the Metro Richmond Zoo does not have elephants. Womp, womp.

We also booked our 10 year anniversary trip over the weekend. I am super excited! This July we will be headed to El Dorado Casistas Royale in Mexico!

Now on to my menu planner. The kind folks at Peach Dish offered to send me a week of complimentary meals. We had the first one on Thursday evening and we will have the second one tonight. Stay tuned for a review. We tried Blue Apron a couple of week ago and you can read that review here.

Sunday - Peach Dish Curried Lamb with Green Lentils & Maple-Glazed Parsnips, Blood Orange & Pistachio

Monday - Turkey Tenderloin, Risotto, Brocoli (carryover from last week)

Tuesday -Slow Cooker Chicken Parmigiana Meatloaf

Wednesday -Chicken Fajitas

Thursday - Spaghetti w/ Meat Sauce and salad


  1. Ooooh, can't wait to hear about Peach Dish. We have cooked one of our Blue Apron meals for the week and I would say that it was average, definitely not stellar. Although the convenience factor is high!

  2. We haven't been to the zoo yet but it's on my list. It is so close to us I may get an annual pass.
