Friday Food Round-Up!

If you feel like you’re experiencing deja vu, just take a look at last week’s meals.  Some of the duplication was inevitable, the other part was entirely due to the fact that I did not assemble a coherent meal plan for the week and this is what sounded “good.”

One BIG bright spot in the week is that the newest Dinner: A Love Story cookbook came out, Dinner: The Playbook.  I pre-ordered it AGES ago and since the release date was two days before my birthday, I considered it a bit of a self-birthday gift.  The recipes are more basic and much faster to execute and I think that is going to be a sanity saver for us this fall because I do not know where the time has gone, but we simply do not have it to cook.

Tuesday – Grilled Chicken Thighs with 4-3-2-1 Spice Rub, Oven Fries, Corn on the Cob and Green Beans-Asparagus Salad-Style


We were supposed to eat this for dinner on Sunday, but after watching The World’s Longest Twins Game (4 hours, people!), there was zero chance of me lifting a finger.  So we made it on Tuesday instead.

Wednesday – Breakfast Sausage, Caramelized Onion and Extra Sharp Cheddar Pizza on Grilled Pizza Crust


Grilled pizza crust is delightful, but I really have no idea as to why we had to eat this, specifically, on Wednesday evening.  This whole dinner was a major case of me thanking Past Kat because she is the one who prepped a bunch of breakfast sausage (and froze it) and saved the extra marinara sauce from Passover’s matzo pizzas (and froze it).

Anyway, it was delicious and comforting and all of the things that dinner should be.
