For lack of anything much better, I figured I'd share the plan for the week as we went grocery shopping yesterday and I did all the selecting as I made menus in my head. The result, a mix of comfort foods from the USA and Europe so to speak.
Tonight we started with meatloaf, the way my mom made it. Nothing fancy, but with mashed potatoes and gravy and yellow corn, definitely comfort food.
Monday, due to time constraints with my getting off from work and Amy having to go to work, we're headed to Old Bavaria. Bratwurst on the grill with sauerkraut, mashed potatoes again, and most likely broccoli.
Tuesday, I'm off from work, so prep time is no issue, I need to get some mushrooms but all else is ready for sirloin steak on the grill, baked potatoes with the fixings and corn on the cob.
Wednesday is trivia night, so bar/pub food at Winston's.
Thursday I work the closing shift, so off to Italy for a little pasta. Simply put spaghetti, again the way mom taught me, with garlic bread. This works because I can make it by lunch time, and we can both eat it and have leftovers to take to work.
Friday is indefinite, we have some chicken breasts in the freezer, but Amy's heart is on a meal that reminds her of her childhood. Fish sticks, macaroni and cheese, and green peas. I am adding a box of fried clams for my own liking, again it's easy to do at lunchtime and I'll brown bag work.
We hit the deli at Publix for some roast beef and picked up some ham and turkey in the regular lunch meat section, so I got some Dagwood style sandwiches to make and take all week, and that is it folks!
