Planning as You Go

This was one of those fill-in-the-blanks menu planning sessions. We'd have chicken. But which recipe? Similarly, what to do with the pork tenderloin in the freezer? Of course, those are the sorts of foodstuffs for which I have plenty of recipes; I just hadn't looked through them before I had to go to work today so the grocery just said "chicken veggie" and "pork veggie". I figured that once I saw what was available in that regard I'd know what to do with the meat.

Nectarines were on sale ($1/pound) and the bok choy looked fabulous. Problem solved.

I am so coming to dinner on Tues, Weds and Thurs. Because everything looks superdelish.

I made a sandwich today with the leftover steak from our Sunday supper together. It was fantastic.

Yeah, and what Jon and Red said...I expect you'll be snapping photos and posting a recipe for the green tea couscous later this week...
