On the Menu This Week

Here’s what we’re eating this week!

There are several recipes I haven’t tried before. And it’s almost all vegetarian, with the exception of Wednesday’s salad, because we have some leftover chicken to use. If we didn’t already have chicken on hand I probably would just leave that out. I’m also using 3 different recipes from Annie’s Eats. She’s had so many delicious looking things lately it’s time to give them some try.

Sunday: Grilled Portobello Mushrooms Stacked with Fresh Spinach and Shaved Manchego Cheese by Bobby Flay. The first time I made this, I carefully (artfully!) stacked the mushrooms and layered the spinach and cheese and drizzled the vinaigrette, but once it was put together and I started to eat it I realized: this is a salad. We’re not trying to impress anyone with our food styling here, Bobby, so I just serve it as a salad.


Monday: Broccoli Pesto Pasta from Annie’s Eats, adapted from Smitten Kitchen, with a side of roasted asparagus with parmesan and lemon zest

Tuesday: Dinner at my parents’ house

Wednesday: Bok Choy Brown Rice Salad with Orange Sesame Dressing from Annie’s Eat’s. My husband and I both have evening activities, so my plan is to make this up in the afternoon and then each eat it when we can.

Thursday: Shrimp and Grits from Annie’s Eats. Side caesar salad

And no, my kids won’t eat any of it.

What are you all eating this week?

  1. We had shrimp with grits a few weeks ago – I hadn’t ever cooked with grits – they were really good! What do the kids eat if they won’t eat any of it?

  2. I don’t know if anyone noticed, but it took me three days to realize: I claimed this to be a mostly vegetarian menu, but 2 out of the four recipes here are not. It’s not really vegetarian at all.
