Menu Monday

We had lots of good eatin' last week.  Enjoy!

Natty Boh Brats
I married a Baltimore boy, which means there is a lot of Natty Boh in my life. My MIL bought these brats for M and he was SO excited to have them for dinner last week.  I served them with baked beans and a corn, avocado, and tomato salad.

Om nom nom, I want to marry this salad.  I wanted to drink the marinade/dressing. I just love a good steak salad. This one was refreshing and a terrific combo of flavors.  And it took basically zero time to make.

Crispy Salmon and Meyer Lemon Spaghetti with Asparagus {Food Network and Eat, Live, Run}
 I paired my go-to salmon recipe with this pasta recipe and it was a winner.  You can't get meyer lemons at my grocery store, so I just used regular lemons and it turned out just fine.  And Jenna was right: this meal is PERFECT with a nice, buttery Chardonnay.

 These. Were. Awesome.
I used Cabot Hot Habanero cheese and a Williams-Sonoma chipotle rub seasoning in place of the pepperjack and chili powder/cayenne powder combo, respectively. So, so, so good.

Bon appetit!
