This Week’s Menu: Two at the Table Menu Week of October 4, 2015
Lots of big events this week (Tony starts a new job on Monday, we have tickets to the American League Wild Card game at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday, and Tony’s parents will celebrate their 50th anniversary on Saturday), but that’s no reason for us to not plan a fun menu!
On Sunday night, we will use a spice packet that our friend Caroline brought back for us from her recent trip to Italy to make Bucatini all’Amatriciana, which we’ll have with an arugula salad. We’re going to follow the recipe on the spice packet, but if you follow the link, you’ll find a recipe from Bon Appetit, which gave us the inspiration to add pancetta (which was not included in the spice packet!) to the sauce.
We’ll make something new on Monday, a recipe that keeps with our pattern of having fish early in the week: The Kitchn’s Crispy Paprika-Parmesan Fish Fillets with Sautéed Chard. This quick, easy recipes sounds perfect for a weeknight.
Tuesday night is the Yankee game, so ballpark food will be in order, but on Wednesday, we’ll make another recipe from The Kitchen: Easy Rosemary-Rubbed Pork Chops. We’ll pair this with some leftover red potatoes from when we made Delish.com’s mustardy Potato Salad.
The rest of the week will be pretty easy, with left over bucatini on Thursday, dinner out on Friday, and the anniversary party on Saturday. So, only three nights of cooking this week, but we’re proud that we were able to fit three new recipes into a very busy week!
