Weekly Menu, January 16-22 – Golden Globes Edition

It’s award season, yippee! Never mind that we’ve seen almost none of the contenders, we’ll enjoy it anyway. Half the fun is watching the clothes come down the aisle.

You may recall that last weekend I was all excited about the Pioneer Woman’s Chicken Pot Pie. I had made the crust. I was ready to go. Alas, sometimes the best-laid plans go wrong. So we’re resuscitating the crusty creamy dinner tonight to combat the “arctic chill” predicted…and chasing it with Smitten Kitchen’s vanilla pudding (and something fabulous our friend Scott is bringing- I’m hoping for Magnolia Bakery cupcakes given his across-the-street locale).

Weekly Menu:

Sunday: As mentioned: Pot Pie à la the Pioneer Woman and Vanilla Pudding à la Smitten Kitchen

Pot pie...about to go in the oven

Monday: Shrimp in some form. I was intrigued by Aggie’s Kitchen’s Indian-Thai Fusion Shrimp, but overwhelmed by the amount of steps involved. So either a shrimp stir fry or Quick Shrimp Tacos via Dinner: A Love Story (my money’s on the tacos).

Tuesday: Citrus Cured Chicken and Stir-Fried Green Beans. The chicken recipe is out of the Gastrokid cookbook, and looks like a cinch: just marinate chicken in fresh squeezed orange juice and lemon and grill it. I dug out the grill so, barring new snow, we could light it up.

Wednesday: Re-exploring Joanne Weir’s More Cooking in Wine Country, we found a recipe for Penne with Tomatoes and Herbed Ricotta Salata that looked good (and we have almost everything on hand)

Thursday: Burrito night

Friday: Grilled Flank Steak (mom’s marinade) with Roast Potatoes and Salad

Saturday: Pizza night. Should we try PW’s Potato Leek Pizza? It has goat cheese, too…intriguing.

Have fun tonight, everyone!

    Alas, I will be missing the Golden Globes due to lack of a digitally-enabled TV. But the goat cheese on pizza is da bomb. We do pizza often as well, and the grownups’ pizza more often than not has goat cheese, maybe caramelized onions, and maybe a few bits of leftover salami from school lunch supplies. Yum.

    Sounds delish! Do you have a dough recipe you love? BTW, the Globes were strangely subdued this year so I don’t think you missed much. Apparently, we all need to see The Social Network.
