And while I don't exactly welcome the return to work and school schedules, it does provide a familiar track to move to. There is something very satisfying in the annual ritual of starting my brand-new, old-school paper datebook. With that, here's what I've dutifully written we're eating this week.
Costco chicken, Won Bok Coleslaw, using honeycrisp apples instead of nashi and pan-fried potato "chips." I sliced Yukon gold spuds very thinly and then cooked in olive oil, Hawaiian salt and cracked black pepper. After two weeks of rice and mochi, it was good to see Mr. Potatohead again.
My Very Own Chili, with fresh whole wheat bread. I've been making my own bread using a breadmaker for about a month now. I still can't believe how easy it is to make bread this way.
Steve's Grilled Lamb, which will be oven roasted instead of grilled since it's still too cold and dark outside. Rounding this out with Roasted Tomatoes, Baba Ghanouj and pita bread. Maximizing the oven today.
Thai Chicken Curry. I'll cave to rice today, but it will be the fluffier jasmine rice.
Welcome to 2012.
Eat Well. Be Well.
