It’s cookbook week! I’ve decided to plan this week’s menu from my cookbook archives, especially since I have some that I’ve barely used! However, tragedy has struck! I just got back from this week’s shop (done a day late because I was out of town) and left my menu plan at the grocery store. D’oh! So, I’m cobbling this together from memory.
Tuesday: Tilapia fish tacos, beans, salad
Wednesday: leftovers/fend for yourself
Thursday: Quiche Savoyarde a la Tomme from Joan Nathan’s Quiches, Kugels, and Couscous, which was sent to me via the inimitable Jodi Bart. I tragically missed out on the opportunity to see Ms. Nathan at the Jewish Book Festival back in October because of my stupid email filters. I’m still kicking myself over it. Salad and crusty bread.
Friday: Soup and sandwiches. I’ve got a ton of soup in the freezer from a soup swap I attended back in December. Probably veggie minestrone for the kids and a curried groundnut for me and Matt. Also, Matt bought a new panini press at the Macy’s closing sale down the street, so we’ll probably give that a whirl.
Saturday: I just picked up some center-cut pork chops at the grocery, so we’ll have those along with some couscous and maybe some salad or veggies from the farmer’s market.
Sunday: Roasted chicken with potatoes and onions from The Lee Bros. Simple, Fresh, Southern, which Matt gave to me last Christmas. I’ve not cooked much from it apart from the pimiento and cheese gratin, but I’ve got my eye on the radish butter to take to my friend’s Super Bowl party. (Because nothing says SUPER BOWL like radish butter!)
(Pausing to say here: You may be scoffing at the idea of radish butter, but I say that you have not lived until you’ve had a thick piece of multigrain bread with a generous shmear of good butter and sliced radishes. HEAVENLY.)
There you have it! What’s for dinner at your house this week?
