Gentle Readers, it is yet one more week of high-paced excitement for Team Practical Cook. However, times like these I’m even more protective of our time in the kitchen and at our meals. For us, it is a time to share, confess, console, and laugh. Sometimes we manage to eat a few green veggies too.
The Practical Cooks Junior are becoming more like kitchen staff than patrons, and they are also more clear about their likes and dislikes. Full respect for their ability to state this clearly and politely. Wednesday’s blog is based on their reviews.
But I digress, on to the week. Our weekly menus are:
The Four-Square Grocery Shopping List is:
Which all means:
Sunday: Thai Tofu
This got bumped from last week, and I’m actively looking forward to it. We’ll be offloading some veggies and trying out a commercial red curry paste.
Monday: Beans and Rice
Comfort food here. Probably black beans and rice, potentially Indian though, a simple dal.
Travel week coming up, so we’re eating up the supplies.
This may change too, but it’s a good stand-by. If I can work it out, I’ve got a foodie Tweetup to attend.
Thursday: Burgers and Fries
The best thing about this meal is that everyone can have it their way. I’m working on a homemade veggie burger, but we’ve got frozen and beef on hand too. Fairly easy to serve veg and non with this meal, believe it or not.
Friday: Dine Out!
On the road again. More details pending.
Saturday: Dine Out!
Manchego, hold the eels. That is all I will say for now. 😉
