what's cooking: last week's menu + the week before

Oh dear. It seems I'm behind on this again.

It's not that I'm not eating - believe me, that would NEVER be a problem! - I just keep forgetting to tell you about it.

Here's what we ate:

Monday - Salad with Chickpeas & Dried Cherries
Week before last - Tortellini Salad with Spinach & Salami
Tuesday - Margherita Pizza
Week before last - Mediterranean Chopped Salad
Wednesday - Chicken Tacos with Guacamole & Roasted Corn
Week before last - Lemon Risotto with Roasted Shrimp
Thursday - Spinach Lasagna
Week before last - leftovers
Friday - we were out of town at a wedding... our first overnight without the Twinkies!
Week before last - Croque Monsieur... yes, again.

Faves? Hmm... it's been a while. Well, the lemon risotto was AWESOME. A perfect springtime dinner. The lasagna was also delish. And so were the salads.
Least fave? The margherita pizza. This is usually a favorite of mine! But I think the tomatoes were too juicy, so the crust didn't get very crispy, and well, I've had better.

Ooh, and we had friends over for dinner a couple weeks ago, and I made these. Totally chocolately. Totally decadent. Chocolate brownies studded with chips...

It's really obvious that the seasons are changing around here. Slowly moving off the menus are all the heavy casseroles and baked pastas, and instead we're serving up salads and lighter fare.

What are you all eating now? Does the change of season bring about a change of menu for you?
