More rain is scheduled for this week, and with that, I definitely feel like comfort food. Yesterday, a few of us were chatting about our favorite way to cook vegetables, and roasting was by far the preferred method. Everything from brussel sprouts to sweet potatoes taste better when roasted with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt. I mean, really, fat and salt, what could be better than that!
From my last trip to the Farmer’s Market, I discovered I still have a couple acorn squashes, a bag of mixed root vegetables ad carrots, and orach. Using those items, here is my menu plan for the week of Monday, February 8:
Monday: Roasted chicken with mixed root vegetables (carrots, potatoes, turnips, rutabagas), sautéed orach
Tuesday: Dinner out after basketball, while I get to go eat dinner for Check Please! Bay Area!
Wednesday: Pizza for the kids
Thursday: Baked salmon, sautéd orach, roasted Delicata squash rings, steamed rice
Friday: Healthy Mac and Cheese (with acorn squash), salad
Saturday (we will be celebrating Valentine’s early): Sweet and spicy Asian pork shoulder, steamed rice, bok choy
What is on your menu plan this week? Any special Valentine’s Day plans?
