Remember how I made a tilapia parmesan a few weeks ago? It was good – and that’s coming from someone who doesn’t eat fish. It was so good that I had two helpings at dinner and then ate the leftovers for lunch. Yum! That one is definitely going into the regular rotation, especially during the summer months.
In other dinner-related news, I’ve recently found frozen prepared meats (roast brisket, beef ribs) that taste amazing and are actually cheaper than buying the same meat raw. Weird… how do they do that? Anyhow, it’s nice to have a few of those in the freezer for days when I don’t feel like actually cooking.
I need to do a huge grocery shop this week – in a few minutes I’ll be going upstairs to inventory my pantry and fridge – so the menu planning will be fast and furious, followed by the customary Making of Lists.
Here’s what’s for dinner this week:
Monday – (Mr. December works late, no dinner for him) Picnic in the park! Falafel sandwiches (will probably pack ingredients separately and assemble when we are ready to eat), fresh fruit (watermelon?), homemade lemonade to drink.
Tuesday – Beef ribs (prepared freezer food!), mashed potatoes, green peas
Wednesday – Tilapia Parmesan (yum!) over whole-wheat linguine
Thursday – Taco night
Friday – Stuffed schnitzel roll-ups, rice, broccoli, challah, Israeli salad, fruit for dessert
Saturday – Coldcut sandwiches
Sunday – BBQ… hot dogs and burgers on (homemade?) buns
Monday – Picnic in the park!
… and that’s it. But readers, I’m curious. How do you organize your shopping list and meal planning? Tell me, do tell…
