Whew. We made it through another deep freeze week. I was hoping we’d see 30’s here in Chicago this coming week, but it doesn’t look like that will happen. Sigh. For now, it’s all about the hot pink sunsets and comfort food! 20 minutes is all it takes to put together this week’s menu plan; let’s do this!
Sunday night is dinner with Grandad. He’s bringing the steaks and red wine, and I’m whipping up the sides. I’m thinking perfect roast potatoes, M’s green beans, and a mixed green salad tossed with our favorite dressing. Delicious!
I didn’t get around to making this recipe last week and I really wanted to try it out. It’s on the agenda for Monday night.
For Tuesday, let’s get a killer soup simmering way on the stove. I heart this one oh so much – full of lentils and veggies, it could not be more satisfying.
Wednesday night is a toss up. Between driving baseball studs around and our last (hopefully) village meeting for our expansion, dinner will either be take-out or another night of the lentil soup. No complaints there!
And that brings us to Friday. With our calendar free, I’m thinking it’s time to bust out our pizza for a cozy night in.
That’s our menu plan for the coming week. What’s cooking in your kitchen? I’d love for you to share a recipe or two!
