Dinner Meal Plan for May 11-17

First off, I want to say Happy Mother’s Day to the best mom (my mom!). I am happy that I got to spend much of the day with her, and my fam, today!


..And, on to the food. (Smooth segue, I know.)

Recap of Last Week:

Luckily, despite the blah dinner, my Tuesday evening improved immensely when I met up with Five Star SexiMexy (and Gabi) for one last one tasting at Bar Whole Foods before Five Star’s moves away from the mitten state. A fantastic cheese platter was involved! #omgcheese

    • I loved it.

      Leo is my obsession. He was excellent as Gatsby. Of course.

      Carey Mulligan pulled off an adequate Daisy but I found her character to be somewhat shallow and two-dimensional, and I don’t think she captured the full range of the character. (I still am a big fan of her though.)

      The movie is a delight to watch – many call it garish, but I found myself entranced by the flashy, glamorous scenes and sexy soundtrack.

      But all in all, I reveled in every minute of the movie. 🙂
