  • Menu Plan Monday: Week of 2/27/2012

    I can’t believe it’s March 1 on Thursday, except that Trader Joe’s hasn’t had winter squash for a few weeks now. I did notice that they have whole heads of cauliflower for $1.69 each, which is a great price considering they’re $2 at the farmer’s market.

    As I continue working out a time management system, I will hopefully figure out a way to be more efficient in the kitchen. In the meantime, though, here’s what I’m planning for dinner this week:

    Monday – Chicken Enchiladas, Salad

    Tuesday – Tuna Pasta Salad (I didn’t get to it last week) with Oven-Dried Tomatoes from Ad Hoc at Home

    Wednesday – Shoyu Chicken (chicken thighs braised with soy sauce & other seasonings), rice, some kind of vegetable

    Thursday – Mac & Cheese (I bought some double cream Gouda and Parmesan-Gouda cheeses at Trader Joe’s this week), Sauteed Green Beans

    Friday – Yaki-udon (stir-fried udon noodles) with vegetables

    Saturday – Leftovers

    Sunday – Dinner out
