I just received a copy of Giada De Laurentiis' newest cookbook, Giada at Home (available at amazon.com) and discovered a few things that I was previously unaware of:
A) Those who live in Italy rarely consider a sandwich to be a meal- just a little snack to them
B) There is a difference between bruschetta and crostini (the former is more rustic, the latter more “dainty”)
C) Giada's daughter looks remarkably like my own
… but, I digress.
I had Kyle choose one recipe per week that I can try, so today we're having a salmon dish (it sounds very tasty).
So, without further diatribe, I give you my...
Weekly Dinner Plan
Monday: Grilled Salmon with Citrus Salsa Verde (Giada at Home, p.132), arugula salad, brown rice
Tuesday: Lamb chops, cheddar cheese pasta (side dish from Knorr), salad
This recipe is from last week. I ended up going out with friends for dinner (so I had the night off!)
(Kyle's at a dinner meeting, so I'm totally going to order sushi for myself, but shhhh- don't tell!)
Thursday: Chicken kebobs with chickpea salad
Going to Boston this weekend- woohoo!
Only a few days of cooking this week, so I better make it good. Wish me luck and let me know how your dinners are coming!
