At last! I planned the menu first and then let my husband do the grocery shopping. (This is a little bit of a family joke. My mother used to say, “I’ll let you do the dishes, honey,” as if conferring a special privilege. Now we say, “I’ll let you do ___, honey,” whenever we want someone else to do a job for us. It doesn’t really apply, here, though, because my husband ‘s favorite sport is grocery shopping, so I’m not exactly passing off an undesirable chore. Convoluted, much?)
Monday: Southwest turkey cheeseburgers, black bean & corn confetti salad (I was going to make this last week with our tacos, and forgot about it!)
Tuesday: Homemade pizza
Wednesday: Quiche and green salad
Thursday: Pork Loin Hunter Style (from a battered, well-used copy of The Inn Cookbook–an old cookbook that is only available used at an incredibly inflated price–I guess we should take better care of it!), cranberry sauce, spätzle
Friday: Tuna noodle casserole (I make it pretty much like this recipe)
Do you have an old cookbook or recipe that you couldn’t replace if you lost it?
