Menu for the week of August 2, 2010
We are currently out of town visiting Birmingham, Alabama, so that my husband can fulfill his military obligations with the Alabama National Guard. We’re in a 2-bedroom hotel suite with a full kitchen, but there is no oven so I’m a little handicapped there. I also didn’t pack pots and pans, because a phone call to the hotel assured me that they had them there. What I have is one frying pan and one large pot. There is also 2 microwave “pots”, but I don’t know how to cook with those. Wandering the hotel grounds, I did find two gas grills out behind the pool. I’m going to inquire today to see if I can use those – which will aid tremendously in the quality of the meals.
As such, breads will be store bought. Breakfasts are provided by the hotel. We ate dinner with a friend Monday and ate out on the road Tuesday, so my menu this week will consist only of dinners and will begin Wednesday.
There is a lovely Fresh Market practically in our parking lot, so I was able to get some nice produce and some deli items to help assist in dinners (since I’m without my normal cooking “tools”.) So, things like hummus and grape leaves were bought in the deli.
As far as desserts go, I picked up a beautiful assortment of gourmet cheeses and some Bartlett pears. For the kids, I bought some Fresh Market bakery strawberry cupcakes and some Eddy’s ice cream.
lamb chops with fresh rosemary and garlic, orzo pasta with cranberries and almonds, grape leaves, hummus, garden salad
steak (hopefully grilled) with onions, sweet red peppers, and baby portabellas; fresh asparagus; wild rice; garden salad
chicken Italian sausage, basil pesto, whole wheat pasta, garden salad, French bread
Rotisserie chicken from Fresh Market’s Deli, sweet potato and black bean hash (which I thought was in my recipe collection and is not — I will definitely correct that this week and post it soon), Coastal Cole Slaw
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
