Dinner this week...

I meal plan/grocery shop every Sunday for the week and this week I decided to give it a theme =] 
It's Civilized Caveman week.
The Civilized Caveman has been a huge resource for me.  He constantly posts yummy looking pictures and I thought instead of drooling over his recipes, I'd put them to use myself. I'm excited! I'm making one of his dishes for dinner almost every night this week.

Monday: Grilled Shrimp Scampi ( This was last nights dinner and it was SO yummy! The shrimp was perfect!)
Tuesday: Lemon Garlic Crockpot Chicken with oven-roasted cabbage and carrots.
Wednesday: Beasty BBQ Baby Back Ribs with collard greens and a side salad.
Thursday: My hubby has duty and won't be home for dinner so the girls and I will probably just have leftovers from one of the previous nights.  If there are any ;)
Friday: Jalapeño Dijon Grilled Chicken with cabbage slaw.
Saturday: Apple Dijon Burgers w/ roasted asparagus and sweet potato fries.
Sunday: Coctel de Camaron (This is my recipe. Hubby's been working hard training for the Open and this is his favorite so I thought I'd be nice and make it for him <3)

At some point, I'm also making these.  
I thought about making them for breakfast one morning, but I think they'd be delicious for dessert too!


  1. Hi Marlene!
    I just stumbled across your blog (linked from pinterest!) George, the Civilized Caveman, was a classmate of mine and his recipes have inspired many!! I am so glad you are loving the lifestyle this time around... can't wait to try your Coctel de Camaron :)

    1. Thank you, Lydia! I really appreciate you stopping by AND commenting ;)
      George has been a huge inspiration! I think a lot of the reason I failed previously was also lack of easily accessible online sites. Now there are so many awesome blogs to reference. I love it! I just got bored with spinach salads!! So far, so AWESOME!
