But it also means spring is coming, right? The snow's mostly gone, I had the sunroof open last week (but now it's raining), and I've decided that if it snows again I'll tailspin into a deep weather-related depression. So, please, spring... stay.
And so we'll grill. Phil got a rotisserie attachment for the grill (not a Ronco countertop rotisserie from those grand infomercials) for his birthday, and we're taking it on the maiden voyage tonight. I'm very excited.
Roasted sweet potatoes
Huevos Rancheros: Pinto beans cooked with spices, salsa, maybe a little chorizo or leftover chicken and spread on tortillas. Bake the bean-covered tortillas in the oven for about 1o minutes, adding a little cheese so it melts. Fry an egg. Take the tortillas out, add cold toppings (avocado, shredded cabbage or lettuce, tomato, salsa) then top with the egg. Glorious.
Tuesday & Wednesday
Another nutty mid-week. We'll do grilled cheese sandwiches. Maybe tomato soup.
Salmon cakes over salad: Not sure yet, but I think I'll just use some canned salmon, mix it with some tiny-chopped sauteed onion & celery, a little bit of bread crumb, a little bit of egg, shape into a little cake, cook in a pan, serve over salad. Maybe the salad will have roasted red pepper. Maybe pine nuts. Maybe not.
Have a lovely week!
