It’s yet another week of belt-tightening; by the time we bought a few (essential!) items at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods, I realized I only had $27 left over for the week’s gas and groceries. To thicken the plot, I’m supposed to bring a meal to a family with a new baby on Tuesday. Well, I’m always looking for a challenge! Here’s what we have planned:
Monday: Enchiladas (bean or chicken — cheese optional), rice, radish salad
Tuesday: My Spaghetti, salad, Italian bread (make double for sharing)
Wednesday: Ahi steaks, quinoa pumpkin pilaf, braised turnips
Thursday: Buckwheat pancakes, blueberries (in freezer from summer picking!), sausage
Friday: Lentil soup, braised cabbage
Saturday: Eat out before play (we’re seeing Aristophanes’ Lysistrata)
Sunday: Burgers, sauteed broccoli, fried potatoes
