Wednesday's "What We Ate Feb. 18-24, 2013"

This week of eating was a bit different for us. We were planning to go to a cabin for the weekend with friends, so that took up a majority of my need for planning, which was quite the treat. I really love meal planning, but sometimes it is definitely one of those things that isn't the most appealing thing to do. Sometimes I just would rather take a nap. 

Having lovely cookbooks for inspiration has definitely been helping me get into planning more, although it's not really reflected in this week's plan... maybe next week? The cookbooks that I've really been digesting lately are: Homemade Pantry (wonderfully simple recipes for staple items you usually purchase), Secrets of the Best Chefs (full of lots of great tricks, as well as scrumptious recipes) & Epicurious Cookbook (tons of inspiration for special date nights & fancy dinner parties), all of which are available at our public library.

If you're from La Crosse, please don't request these books any time soon! I'm too attached! I need at least 30 more weeks with them. What are your most inspiring cookbooks or cooking resources?
Part of Monday's dinner: chicken egg rolls with a dipping sauce (soy sauce, sesame oil, green onions, & roasted sesame seeds). The homemade vegetable ramen was mostly a flop, so we need to find a new recipe next time
