what we're eating this week
Can you tell the kiddos are back to school and I don't have a day off until MLK day? I took the Christmas tree down yesterday; the decorations have been stashed away until next year. And our meals are missing the extra sugar, spice, heavy cream and butter that the holidays bring with it. Harrumph.
I do enjoy the simplicity of life after the holidays and the starkness of meals that highlight each ingredient instead of smothering it in richness., but at heart, I'm a girl who loves the indulgences of the holiday season (Champagne, anyone?). So, without further ado, here's what we're eating this week.
Menu: Week of 5 January 2013
Saturday: a family favorite: Locro de papas with avocado
Sunday: turkey meatloaf, mashed sweet potatoes and mixed greens vinaigrette with dried cranberries and toasted walnuts
Monday: spicy shrimp with yogurt and whole-wheat naan from the new (and awesome) Dinner: A Love Story cookbook
Tuesday: Carrot soup with crusty bread and mixed greens salad
Wednesday: dhal of the day with basmati rice
Thursday: spaghetti and meatballs (from the freezer); steamed broccoli with lemon and pine nuts
Friday: spinach Florentine pizza
happy eating, -s.
