Our house was turned a bit upside down last week, when a frozen pipe in an upstairs bathroom led to a flood that damaged the ceiling and walls in our dining room and living room. Fans and dehumidifiers took took the place of our dining room table, which was shoved to the side and drafted into duty as a closet (everything had to be emptied out of a coat closet, which had a saturated ceiling). All the disorder did little to foster a week of cooking, though I did manage to make dinner Monday (Spinach Lasagna Roll-Ups) and Tuesday (Linguine with Chicken Thighs) night, and those were both successful. Hoping for a less eventful week on the homestead.
Monday: Leftovers (smoked beef ribs and Spicy Cabbage Slaw)
Wednesday: Farro with Roasted Butternut Squash & Goat Cheese (I may try adding figs, too), roasted zucchini
Thursday: Easy Chicken Chili, whole grain tortilla chips, garden salad
Friday: Dal (still looking for a good recipe), brown rice, steamed broccoli
Saturday: Eat out
Sunday: At a Super Bowl party! I’m bringing Chocolate Trifle and a dip
