This was a good
week for dinners. Tonight, I whipped up some cheddar hamburgers on our new grill, with some grilled asparagus. Last night, rain canceled our grill plans, so we just ordered in a sausage and onion pizza from the Roman Candle. Friday, we made scrambled eggs and sausage links. Thursday was a Jack's frozen pizza, as we had some stuff come up at night that necessitated us needing to eat dinner quickly. Wednesday was rice topped with beef and gravy. Tuesday was linguine aglio et olio
(and holy shit
, it was good).
This week is going to be even better, I think.
Monday: Pork tenderloin, rubbed with tarragon, mustard, sage, thyme and champagne vinegar, oven-roasted. Probably making mashed potatoes and applesauce with it.
Tuesday: Tuna casserole (tuna, elbow macaroni, diced onions, peas, cheddar cheese, mushroom soup).
Wednesday: Skillet lasagna or turkey burgers, depending on what I decide to pull down from my freezer tomorrow. Maybe some angel hair pasta in arrabbiata sauce, if I can convince my wife to roll with a spicy meal. (Or, I just make her a savory pan sauce and make the arrabbiata for myself.)
(Seared in cast-iron pan on stovetop, finished in oven to perfect medium rare. Served with asparagus.)
Friday: Probably something simple; I'd guess whole wheat pasta with sundried tomatoes and broccoli florets, topped with shredded parmesan cheese and a broccoli sauce (broccoli stalks, steamed with chicken stock and pureed with the reduced stock, salt and pepper). Hell
Saturday: Oven-roasted ham with a cola / mustard / spice glaze, probably alongside some corn.
Sunday: Chicken stuffed with fontina, spinach, maybe artichokes.
Ideally, the only money I'll be spending this week is on a few additional grocery supplies here and there (fontina, spinach, broccoli).
