This Week’s Menu: Two at the Table Menu Week of May 8, 2016
Last week turned out to be a little busier that we thought it would be work-wise, with both of us coming home a couple of times with no interest in cooking. This happens from time to time so as always, we stayed flexible and are going to “recycle” a few recipes into this week. Here’s what we have planned.
We’re going to the Yankees-Red Sox game Sunday night and will have dinner at the Stadium, but we’ll have dinner at home Monday night. We will make Food 52’s Green Goddess Chicken Sandwiches, which we planned to make last week. We still have the 2015 La Nymphe Tavelin the fridge, so we’ll also do the original wine pairing that we planned.
We’re taking our cats George and Henry to the vet for a regular check up Tuesday night, so we will order in either right before or right after their appointment. Kim will be out with friends Wednesday night, so Tony will be on his own. He’ll have leftovers, specifically, the asparagus that he made with the swordfish and carrot romesco earlier in the week last week and the cowboy steak from our fun Cinco de Mayo dinner.
On Thursday night, we’ll make a new recipe that Kim found: Saveur’s Thai Fish Burgers. We might have beer with this one, but if we can find the time, we’ll take the recipe to Columbus Wine and Spirits and see if we stump Michael with it.
We’ll be out celebrating a friend’s birthday on Friday night. We have tickets to a Jazz at Lincoln Center concert on Satruday, but will make time to have dinner at home before the show. We’ll recycle another of last week’s recipes Food 52’s Cilantro Lime Salmon Cakes with Chipotle Mayo. While this dish is similar to Thursday night’s dinner, we think they are different enough that we’ll enjoy them both equally. Plus, we’ve been on such a big seafood kick lately that we’ll probably enjoy both dishes either way!
