First things first…a huge congrats to Christian for completing his 3rd triathlon this Sunday!  In celebration we’re indulging in some delivery pizza, which is rare for us and therefore feels special for Christian. I’ll have to make sure I get a good workout in too so I deserve it! Monday is one of our old standbys…a fabulous take on fish tacos that is simple and healthy.

Tuesday we have a rare mid-week dinner date with some friends. My episode of Check, Please! Bay Area re-aired recently and a friend at work reached out wanting to get together and try my restaurant so we’re heading to Saha. We haven’t been in a while and obviously I love it, so I’m pretty excited to introduce some new friends to an old favorite.

Wednesday & Thursday are two new dishes from the June & August issues of Bon Appétit…my go-to resource for stellar recipes. Christian requested “something with lentils” this week so the Brown Rice salad looks like a nice way to incorporate them into a meal without it feeling like a heavy, winter-like dish. The chicken soup is a new take on one of our all-time favorites…Chicken Tortilla Soup. Not that the old favorite needs any fixing, but sometimes a fresh spin on an old dish is fun!
