Well, I guess not quite yet... Friday has just begun, but
Now, a bit of background... Mrs. LB commutes and has an actual sit-down-in-an-office job and I'm a freelance writer which means I work from home and handle the day-to-day household duties, most of them anyway. I got into cooking in 2007 (mostly by watching the Food Network!) and consider myself a not-too-shabby home cook. I love to bake too.
Anyway, I made it a goal this week to cook at home every night, made my meal plan on Monday and went grocery shopping. I had a lot of stuff already (thanks Costco) but some things I needed to get, mostly fresh produce (wilted celery in fridge wasn't gonna cut it).
It was kinda tough to be honest but it's nice to know that I made a plan for my meals for the week and followed through with it.
What did I make? Glad you asked...
BBQ Pork Sandwiches
Sweet Potato Fries
Tostadas (my own creation, Mexican-style: cover w/crema mexicana, sliced turkey meat, shredded cabbage, diced carrots, jalapenos, onions... gotta take picture next time).
"Unstuffed" Chicken Florentine
Pasta w/Bolognese sauce (my own creation, diced and cooked spicy sausage, diced bell peppers, onions, mushrooms; added Marinara sauce, served over penne pasta)
Kung Pao Chicken
Well, at least that's what I have planned for today. I have time today to A) cook it and B) figure out something else if it don't work.
So we'll see if I follow through with the Asian food for tonight or if I go in another direction. Either way, it will be a home-cooked meal.
