Weekly Menu, October 10 – 16

Before we get to the weekly menu, a note about last week’s “green eggs and ham.” You may recall that I had a pretty sophisticated dish planned, which included mascarpone and feta cheese, plus dark leafy greens (all things I happened to have in the fridge — someone else, please make!). Weeeeelllllllll, that didn’t happen. I had a long day on Monday, and had figured we’d scrap that night’s plan for something a bit simpler. But then, the kids met me at the front door. “Hello, Dr. Seuss, what’s for dinner?!”

Who can resist that? So “green eggs and ham” was revived on the spot. I took four eggs out of the fridge, plus the spinach, and the ham. I whisked the eggs, and put a ½ cup of loose spinach through the mini-prep. Then I mixed the two together with some salt and pepper, and scrambled it on the stovetop.  Two pieces of toast, and two pieces of ham rolled up, and voila! Green eggs and ham…and clean plates. Brahahahaha…spinach gone! Magnolia even asked for it again the next night. Not sophisticated, but a kid-pleasing dish full of vitamins and iron, simple for an everyday weeknight meal in a hurry.

On to the week in dinner. We have been enjoying some wonderful weather this weekend, and it looks like it will continue most of the week.

Weekly Menu:

Sunday: Trip to CHINA!! Canceled due to J’s stomach bug. Poor thing. Look for fun and games and good food from the Far East maybe next weekend. Consolation prize for moms & Aunt Katie:  CSA Broccoli soup (we got 2 lbs of broccoli this week!), Baguette, CSA Lettuce Salad with Goat Cheese and Tomato, chased by Easy Apple Galette! Not bad if we did make it.


You can see the cayenne in this pic


Monday: Halibut in Foil with Juniper Berries, served over leafy greens with a side of wheat pilaf. Craving this!!


Apple Galette...ummmm.


Tuesday: Todd English’s White Bean & Garlic Soup, with Swirled Swiss Chard

Wednesday: From Dinner: A Love Story (which I have been perusing with great pleasure — you’ll note if you’ve clicked through on the links): Baked Chicken in Creamy Tomato Sauce. I am counting on this being a crowd-pleaser!

Thursday: Black Bean Burritos with Pickled Onions, Pepper Jack and Spinach

Friday: Burger night!

Saturday: We’re being entertained, hooray!

    Made this galette with the last of our apple-picking stash and it was so easy and so yummy with vanilla ice cream.
