Looking back at last week’s menu, we did a good job of following the plan for the week. Weekends got a little hectic because we went out for the day and then wound up eating out. Most of the meals were successful, though none as amazing as the chana masala!

Overall, Monday – Thursday stayed the same. The steak for Friday got bumped to Saturday. On Sunday I went to the movies and wound up going to Johnny Rockets. This week, I’m planning to reuse some of the few ingredients that didn’t make it into the mix.


Monday: Meatless Monday! Bhindi Masala with Queso Blanco, using Orangette’s Channa Masala as a base, naan and fresh tomatoes.

Tuesday: Asian flavored pork chops over <a href="soba noodles.

Wednesday:Lemon Olive Chicken with Cous Cous.

Thursday: Dinner out at Perilla. Hooray Restaurant week!

Friday: Farmers’ Market Free for All! Newman’s Own Uncured Pepperoni Pizza and fresh farmer’s market salad.

Saturday: Cubano Quesadillas with home-made pickles.

Sunday: Whole Roasted Chicken, grilled veg and corn pudding.



Cristen, a New York City school teacher who loves to cook, even if she's not always amazing at it. Lives in Queens with her husband and two pit bulls. Total cheese addict. Fan of anything savory and sweet, espescially Thai food. Likes to eat seasonally. Trying to be a locavore. Learning how to explain what she likes in a red wine: dry, medium bodied with hints of fruit. If I could only have one network on my TV, it would be the Food Network. I cannot get enough of competitive cooking shows like Top Chef and Iron Chef. I adore Anthony Bourdain more than I probably should.
