this week's menu
So, I’m doing the two-for-one special again this week. I don’t know why I haven’t been doing this more, since it saves me a huge amount of time on the weeknights while still providing us with some delicious and satisfying meals.
Chris’s dad was in town this weekend and we had that classic Italian-American duo of spaghetti and meatballs for dinner last night. I made a large batch of meatballs and baked them like I always do, but reserved a portion of them for dinner later in the week. While I was at it, I roasted some split chicken breast (just a coating of olive oil, kosher salt and pepper) for tortilla soup and later chicken tikka masala. All of this was done with relative ease on a Sunday afternoon.
We’re in the process of closing on our house, moving into a condo temporarily while we figure out our job situations over the next six to nine months, etc., so if my posts are a little sporadic, a little wine-soaked or just a little silly, I apologize in advance; come March 1, I should be back to “normal.”
With that caveat, here’s what we’re eating this week (I haven't done this in a while; sorry!):
