We've been seriously winging things lately in the dinner department. The question "what should we eat for dinner" has been met by... crickets lately. What the heck. I mean, we go food shopping in a given week more often than I'll admit, plus we have a bin of beautiful produce (what we can't grow here) delivered on Thursdays.... plus there's that VEGETABLE GARDEN out back. Dude. The only thing I know how to do in situations like this is Make A List.
Mon :: Taco Nite w/spicy pickled carrots, onion & jalapeños
Tue :: Shrimp and Chive Dumpling soup w/steamed bok choy (soup in summer you say? hello, San Francisco.)
Wed :: Southwestern Turkey Burgers (served w/pickled onion & jalapeños from Mon)
Thu :: Jamie Oliver's lamb & pistachio kebabs (served w/homemade yogurt & garden lettuces)
Fri :: Skirt steak, veg & potatoes of some sort (Toby's beloved week-ending steakhouse-style meal)
And... since we were away from home for a week, today was a serious Catching Up With Ma Ingalls type of day. I'll never ever get sick of a day spent in the kitchen, assisted (when awake) by my favorite helper.
Today's kitchen 'did-do' list:
- vegetable stock (for Tues dinner)
- bread dough for 3 loaves (will bake on Tues morning)
- pickled veg for Mon & Wed
- roasted beets for random lunches
- pot o' black beans for Mon and rest of week
- yogurt (part one; on Tuesday we drain, Greek-style.)
What are you eating this week?! Any good recipes? Need more data.
