Creating a basic weekly outline for supper helps me with my grocery shopping, because my secret to being an active cook, and not a food assembler, is having ingredients in the house. When I think of our upcoming week in terms of these “bones”, I end up cooking meals with more variety. I particularly enjoy Sundays, making an extended amount of time in my kitchen to try or develop a new recipe and perhaps even bake a seasonal dessert. I love the word supper. It’s super! To me, dinner is that meal served on Sunday afternoon.
Monday – Pasta Feast
Tuesday – Legume Creation
Wednesday – Meat/Poultry Night
Thursday – Soup or Fish Extravaganza
Friday – Pizza (mostly homemade, sometimes delivery)
Saturday – Market and evening activities dictate (have I been to a farm market or our city fresh market? Is a babysitter coming? Can we grill out? )
Sunday – New Recipe and Dessert
