Restaurant Week: Salazar Style

Restaurant week has been going on in Boston. It is on our Bucket List and I have been dying to go try some of the amazing restaurants here in Boston. As anyone who has spent any amount of time with us knows, we love food! However Job and I both agreed that we could skip it this year to save some money. But that didn't mean we had to go without good food! I decided to create a few fun 3 course meals for us to eat at home, using only ingredients we already had. It was a fun challenge and we got to enjoy some yummy meals together. I even busted out the candles ;)

Here's the lowdown on our menus. I didn't take pictures (gasp) because I decided to just sit back and enjoy the meal rather than stress about that. So go make some fancy food and share it with someone. They will looovvvee you {more}.

Night One
Spinach and spring greens salad with a homemade lemon and agave vinaigrette topped with herb feta
Slow cooked pork loin with mango sauce
Buttered leeks
Sweet potato medallions
Chocolate swirled banana bread

Night Two
Steamed artichoke with homemade chipotle aioli
Lentil bolognese over spaghetti rigati (vegetarian)
Fresh Parmesan bread sticks
Strawberry basil soup shot, garnished with whipped cream and fresh mint

Night Three
Pizza ;)


  1. Ok, the funny thing is that you have all of those things in your house!!! If that we tried that it would be like, Day One: Cheerios. Day Two: chicken noodle soup from a can. Day Three: cheese (just cheese, no bread or something to go with it). You guys are so funny!
