I’m about to head to the grocery store to fill in on some staples (actually I was supposed to be out the door an hour ago), but first I’m posting this week’s menus
Monday: Grilled filet mignon with scallion butter, asparagus
Tuesday: Cranberry chicken, mashed white beans with roasted garlic
Wednesday: Burritoes or tacos
Thursday: Onion soup breaded chicken, green beans
Friday: Greek chicken pitas, salad
Saturday: Fish taco salad
If you watch the flyers you can sometimes find filet mignon on sale for a great price. About a month ago, Shop-Rite (a Northeast chain), had it for $4.99/lb. I think we bought like $40 worth of it and had the butcher cut it into individual steaks. We’ve already had it four times I think, and there’s probably at least another four dinners in the freezer. I always feel so extravagent when I eat it, but the cheapskate side of me knows the truth
The cranberry chicken recipe is from “Don’t Panic – Dinner’s in the Freezer.” I’ll be freezing half the batch, and eating half for dinner on Tuesday. The recipe for mashed white beans if from “Everyday Food: Great Food Fast.”
The onion soup breaded chicken is inspired by this dish by Darcy.
You can find the recipe for Greek Chicken Pitas here.
And the fish taco salad? I have to figure that out, but basically it’s just going to be fish tacos without the tortillas. What are you making?
