Meal Plan #6

Back to being organized (at least in theory) this week, thanks in part to the long weekend. All I need to stay on top of things is an extra day off, once in a while...

Pasta with Roasted Eggplant and Meat Sauce from Mark Bittman's Food Matters

Red Lentil Soup with Greens from The Moosewood Collective's Simple Suppers
Greek Salad

Wednesday (Dinner party! Friends are coming over)
Quick Cassoulet from dee Hobsbawn-Smith's The Quick Gourmet (no duck confit here—Chinese BBQ pork instead, if you can believe it. But it's an excellent winter warmer, and should match up perfectly with the Alsatian Gewurtztraminer that I want to serve. Sometimes, the menu is just a foil for serving certain wine.)
Some kind of salad, haven't yet decided
Chocolate peanut butter pudding cake (after the popularity of last week's pear gingerbread pudding, inspiring D to chant "I love cake, I love cake," I'm all about trying similar recipes. And what could be better than chocolate and peanut butter together in gooey cake?)

Thursday (need a quick dinner so that we can be ready for the arrival of our kitchen remodelers (!!!) who are coming at 7:00. More on kitchen reno to come)
Egg foo yung omelet (will use up cabbage, peppers and green onions) from Simple Suppers

Rarebit Risotto, also from Simple Suppers (This was formerly a huge kid favourite, so we'll see whether it's still a winner)
