Another week, another week of meal planning and making dinners. The freshest meal this week was Monday’s dinner. The eggs were from our backyard chickens who are finally back into their routine of laying and the mustard greens were fresh from the garden. The greens had grown all winter (meaning they hadn’t died over the winter) and we finally harvested them.
This meal plan is Monday, February 27, 2012 to Sunday, March 4, 2012.
Monday: strata with greens
Tuesday: whole wheat pasta with roasted red peppers and ground pork
Wednesday: (leftovers) whole wheat pasta with roasted red peppers and ground pork
Thursday: spicy lentils over quinoa
Friday: fish chowder
Saturday: (leftovers) fish chowder
Sunday: roasted chicken thighs, brown rice and green salad
On Thursday, the lentils were so tasty (ok, that’s what I’m telling myself) I forgot to serve them over the planned quinoa and grabbed some fresh spinach and tossed that into the pan (instead of looking at my meal plan posted front and center on the refrigerator door!). I didn’t realize my mistake until Sunday when my daughter was making dinner and asked where her spinach was for the green salad. Oops. We had to stop by the grocery store and get salad greens. My son made dinner on Friday with fresh mussels from ABC Seafood. If you live in Portland, you have to check out ABC Seafood – it’s better than a trip to an aquarium.
