What’s for Dinner

Thanks to everyone who expressed sympathy over Robin’s illness. I’m only sorry that it had to coincide with our visit to Reno. I think Robin managed to give his Nonna the plague too; I hope she’s feeling better!

Our veggie box arrived today: chard, leeks, collard greens, kale, bok choy, carrots, radicchio, potatoes, broccoflower, oranges.

Tonight I think I’m going to take a chance and adapt a recipe that Sam and I both really like—whole wheat penne with Italian sausage, sun-dried tomatoes, and spinach—to use the collard greens instead of spinach. We’ll see how the experiment turns out.

Tomorrow Robin and I will have bok choy for lunch, braised with garlic and served over brown rice, and for dinner I think a veggie extravaganza of kale (cooked simply with garlic and balsamic vinegar), potatoes (boiled and tossed with butter and dill), and broccoflower (roasted).

Friday lunch: fish sticks. And dinner: baked polenta with chard. I just really love that recipe. It’s my favorite way to have chard. I like to use leeks instead of the onion.

Saturday lunch will be scrounged from the fridge/freezer: dinner will be Fancy Sandwiches (assembled from store-bought olive bread, prosciutto, goat cheese, shredded radicchio, and balsamic vinaigrette).

Sunday we eat brunch out; for dinner I’m thinking chili mac, as an antidote to all the fanciness of the previous night.

Monday lunch: leftover chili mac! Dinner: steaks and roasted carrots.

Tuesday lunch: PB&J. Dinner: chicken, broccoli, and ziti casserole.
