menu planning, gentle readers, means that we've been at this for six months. Wow.
Six months is a long time to stick with something like this and, honestly, I think we're just getting better at it. As the one who does most of the cooking, Boyfriend has really stepped up and become a driving force in this project. As I begin my second week of unemployment, it's possible that I will pick up some kitch duties...
Monday: I have meeting all day and a meetup in the evening. I'll pick up something on the go...
Tuesday: Boyfriend is stoked to try this chicken and dumplings recipe he came across on Smitten Kitchen.
Wednesday: There is still a bit of leftover beef in the freezer - Boyfriend will transform this into Philly-tyle cheesesteaks.
Thursday: I plan on going to Digital Dumbo, so we'll heat up some leftovers on our own.
Friday: A friend forwarded me this recipe (Again from Smitten Kitchen) for tomato and sausage risotto - might be a good way to end the week.
Saturday: We're going to try for this lentil stew a la Alton Brown.
Sunday: We missed this last week as we went to watch football and catch up with friends, so we'll roast a chicken and see what we can do with the leftovers for next week's plan...
