Gentle Readers, The Practical Cook has a quandary. It is winter in name, but not functionally so. My body wants stews and soups, but it’s tuna on a bed of greens weather outside! This week’s menu reflects my questionable relationship with the weather.
Without further delay, here are the Weekly Menus for this week:
And the Four-Square Grocery List:
Which means we’ll be eating:
Sunday: Fish and vegetable OR Soup and Sammie
I want something simple here, and we’re recovering from a round of the infamous stomach bug that’s running rampant, so I want to be flexible.
Monday: Breakfast for Dinner
Because I’m beginning the research for a bacon tasting, this is necessary. With pancakes, blueberry buckwheat pancakes. (Veselka, I miss you, and I’ll be coming to see you before too long. Hugs.)
Working on some Vegan recipes. Stand by.
Wednesday: Pork Noodle Soup
This is a day I won’t be working on Vegan recipes. I’m a culinary paradox, I accept that.
Thursday: Tortellini with sauce and salad
These are my long days at work right now. I need to have something The Eldest Practical Cook Junior can work on and that will be eaten with little fuss.
Friday: Leftover Surprise
Clean-up day! Let’s see what’s left, and what it becomes.
Saturday: Dine Out!
As always, if you have suggestions for great food that needs to be field tested, let me know!
