The Meal Plan | 12.03.14 | The Culmination of a Day

A day's worth of work.  Yesterday it was Chicken Stew.  Flat-roasting a chicken.  Blanching carrots.  Sauteeing onions.  Making Biscuits.  It was my version of Babette's Feast.  It felt like it took all day.  In actuality it took most of the day when you include the washing up.  I think this effort could be both criticized and praised.  Was it a poor use of time or was it a good use of time?  Please don't answer.  I remain disillusioned either way.  Today's goal will be to avoid the kitchen entirely.  Babette is fasting.

Monday:  The Weekly Lentil.  These with dijon mustard and red wine vinegar.
Tuesday:  Chicken Stew with Biscuits.  Cursedly comforting.
Wednesday:  Split Peas over Rice.  Not sure who's going to make that.  
Thursday:  Pumpkin Pasta from Simply in Season.  I still haven't shared that recipe, have I?
Friday:  Cauliflower Risotto.  Homemade Winter



  1. Wholesome, nourishing food. Worth it! Ma says so.

  2. Ditto with Emily! Being from the south, biscuits (and cornbread) are a staple in our home. <3
