Weekly Dinner Plan
Monday: Beachin' it!
Despite what was looking like a very “unbeachy,” rainy, miserable night, I strapped the baby in her car seat and headed over to the club to meet my family for dinner. It turned out to be a lovely evening (if a little buggy) and Dad, who was visiting for a couple days, grilled salmon on the BBQ. The sauce that he had made was a combination of capers, soy sauce, Colman's dry mustard, and half of a lemon. It was extremely delicious, though a bit salty, because of the saliferous ingredients. Anyone with high-blood-pressure beware!
Tuesday: Chicken, rice, salad
We have so much chicken left over from Saturday, it seems a shame not to devote an entire night to leftovers!
Haven't had it in a while- and New York pizza is the best. I'll have to indulge this week!
Thursday: Pennette with Summer Squash and Ricotta, salad
Mario Batalli's recipe from Food Network Magazine (May, p. 88) or http://www.grouprecipes.com/114461/pennette-with-summer-squash-and-ricotta.html. This looks simple and light- begging to be eaten!
Friday: Turkey meatloaf with feta and sun-dried tomatoes, salad
Giada at Home (p.120) or http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/turkey-meatloaf-with-feta-and-sun-dried-tomatoes-recipe/index.html.
I've made this before and I'll make it again. And again. And again... So good.
Saturday: Chicken lettuce wraps, rice
A healthier alternative to pitas, we'll use iceberg leaves to hold our fillings.
Sunday: Father's Day!
