Notre Ardoise: October 16, 2010

The chest freezer we’ve been using has really helped breakfast planning. I put some breakfast  burritos in the freezer today. They have black beans, scrambled eggs, a green tomato salsa verde, scallions, corn, and (sometimes) cheese. We’ll see if we even get to them this week. I’m going to try to finish the cream cheese with some defrosted bagels from the other week. The second half of a cinnamon bread recipe from a while back is also up for this week.

It’s a meaty week. We used ground buffalo for the meat sauce and kabobs. For tonight we split a grilled strip steak.

This week was easy because we are out two nights. Even with a 3 day weekend I didn’t manage to pre-cook very much, so we’ll see if the turnips make it into soup form on Thursday.

Notre Ardoise: October 2, 2010

Last week’s plan never made it to the ardoise, and now I can’t find the scrap of paper we worked from. So no meal update from last week. What I remember is that we each cooked an extra dish on Sunday for weeknight reheating – I made a gumbo and S made a ratatouille.

That worked so well that we (well, I) did it again this week. While S made the sambar I made soup, pizza dough, and baked tofu. The tofu was unfortunately too salty. It acted like a sponge in my soy sauce marinade. So the quest to make good baked tofu continues. Any suggestions?
