The cards arrived in the mail yesterday, and the tree is arriving this week. That’s right, the tree is shipped to us via UPS from the folks at White Flower Farm. Why? We realized when we had toddlers that two moms who can’t make a decision quickly were at a disadvantage when it came to picking out…well, anything, in a hurry. Trees were a problem because here in Brooklyn they are sold on the street. One kid would be running around, hiding in the trees while the traffic zoomed by, and the other would be in the stroller wailing, and picking out the perfect tree was suddenly so un-fun. So for now we have the non-traditional, but extremely convenient, tree delivery service.
On to the menu for the week:
Sunday: Béatrice Peltre over at La Tartine Gourmande often inspires me. This week I’m taken by her beautiful Gratin Dauphinois. We’re going to try it, with some Sunday Roast Chicken and Salad tonight. A mini-trip to France!
Monday: Warding off the cold with a taste of summer: Pasta & Pesto with Oven-Roasted Tomatoes and Corn
Tuesday: Shrimp Stir-Fry with Basil and Veggies
Wednesday: Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas, courtesy of Homesick Texan
Thursday: I had this on the menu a few weeks ago and didn’t quite get to it. This week, I hope to: Porcini Mushroom Soup with a Winter Salad
Friday: Not sure if we are entertaining or eating out. More to come.
Saturday: Pizza night!
