cooking together makes a comeback | menu – may 24

Last night, after what we seems like months, the whole family got into the kitchen and prepared a meal together. We had yummy Spaghetti in Pesto and beautiful Salads with Feta and Strawberry Vinaigrette. Yay! We’ve promised to set aside time to cook at least one meal as a family every week and, if the summer proves as restful as we hope, we can do it more often than that.

We’re gonna have skinny dinner plan for this week (minus-one due to business trip and busy Memorial Day Weekend plans). Friday night’s dinner will be our family cooking night.

Monday
Sandwiches | Oven-Baked Fries with Feta

Tuesday
Greek Mac-N-Cheese | Side Salads

Wednesday
Tamales | Rice | Beans

Thursday
Split Pea Soup with Fennel and Potatoes | Lemon Frittata with Leeks and Goat Cheese

Friday
Entree-sized Greek Salad with Orzo and Black-Eyed Peas

Other stuff planned:
Hummus
Homemade popsicles (our first batch of the year)
Oat Bread (rising now)
Maybe some Granola Bars for the trip
