Menu for the Week: Two at the Table Menu Week of October 18, 2015
It will be a bit slow cooking-wise this week, as Tony will be flying solo for most of the week and we have dinner plans for the weekend. The menu is pretty simple, but we hope to post some write-ups of the dinners we’ve made over the past few weeks, like Delish’s Grilled Portobello Steaks with Sundried Tomato Aioli and Baked Zucchini Fries, The Kitchn’s Crispy Paprika-Parmesan Fish Fillets with Sautéed Chard, and Giada DeLaurentiis’ Lamb Osso Bucco.
We visited our friend Colleen and her little boy John on Sunday. We had a great time; John is a sweet, fun kid with a sweet sense of humor and endless stores of energy and Colleen is always a pleasure to talk to. After a huge, delicious lunch (chicken and ribs, plus two kinds of pie!), we weren’t very hungry for dinner, so we ditched plans to order in and just had adult beverages (beer for Tony, wine for Kim) and watched TV.
On Monday night, Tony will have barbecued chicken, which he’ll make using the same approach we use when we make Barbecued Chicken with Short-Cut Collard Greens. He’ll probably throw together some veggies too, as we have carrots in the fridge and corn in the freezer. A cold, hoppy Six Point Bengali IPA will be the perfect beverage to accompany dinner.
On Tuesday night, Tony plans to have dinner with his brother and on Wednesday, he’ll have some leftover Lemon Lavender Chicken, which we made last week. We know from experience that this dish heats up really well, so Tony is really looking froward to it. Here’s hoping he can remember to but some French bread on the way home!
Kim will be back very late on Thursday night, so Tony will head over to his parents’ house to have dinner and to say good-bye to his cousins Rosa and Vincenzo, who return to Italy on Friday.
We’ll probably go out or order in on Friday (we haven’t had sushi in a long while) and we have fun dinner plans with our friends John, Janice, John, and Rachel on Saturday, which will wrap up another week for Two at the Table!
