As the week plus of fast and furious Fried ends, The Practical Cook finds herself with a surfeit of Red Russian Kale, a gift from TPC’s Parents. A gentle hint perhaps? Fall is upon us, with its leafy greens and yellow-orange squash. We’ve got fall recipes coming your way this week, but for now, a weekly meal plan devoid of anything fried. Time to detox!
Here’s what’s cooking on the Weekly Menus:
And the Four-Square Grocery List:
Which translates to:
Sunday: Veggie burgers or Stew and veg
TBD depending on time and on-hand ingredients.
Monday: Fish and Veg
At the risk of “ensmartening” the Practical Cooks Junior way past my touch, salmon filets and some roasted veg are in order.
Tuesday: Dinner Salad
Using up the leftovers!
Wednesday: Soup and dumplings
Probably pork noodle soup with store-bought dumplings and edamame.
With potatoes and broccoli. See, sometimes I make simple fare. The trick will be in stretching this dish and selling it to the Juniors.
Saturday: Dine Out!
So much new food to try around here, what will it be?
