This week, I’m using recipes from the cookbook How To Cook Everything by Mark Bittman. I checked it out of the library, a great resource for cookbook lovers like myself! Do you read cookbooks for fun, cover to cover like a novel, or am I the only one?
I’ve heard good things about this book, and its vegetarian counterpart which was already checked out. I’m excited by the variety of yummy-looking dishes!
I also got a fantastic deal on raw spinach this week, 2.5 lb. for $3.99, so we’ll be eating a lot of spinach this week, including Green Smoothies for breakfast (not in the book.) Good thing we like spinach!
This week, we’ll be having:
Pollock en papillote with spinach, baked potato
Bean and Corn Pancakes, brown rice broccoli
Meatloaf with spinach, mashed potatoes, green beans
Stir-fried chicken and spinach, fried rice
Creamy squash soup, cornbread
Last week’s Lorna Sass “Pressure Perfect” menu didn’t disappoint. Did I mention last week that just about any meal made in a pressure cooker can easily be frozen for a quick meal on a busy night – just defrost and heat up. The Un-Stuffed Cabbage in Sweet-and-Sour Tomato sauce with meatballs is always delicious, and really good reheated. I made an extra batch for the freezer, and an extra batch of split pea soup with smoked paprika. Yum!
