Each week, I intend to post what we’re consuming – food and media – for a couple reasons:
- To chronicle our actions
- To provide ideas for others
- To take our attention from the news
- To stay sane (see #3)
Meals of the Week:
Monday, April 5 Dinner: Pork tenderloin rubbed down in ras hanout seasoning, root vegetable and chickpea side, and roast corn on the cob.
Wednesday, April 7 Lunch: The Romano – roasted red peppers, chicken seasoned in rosemary, oregano, garlic, and salt; red leaf lettuce, muenster cheese, balsamic.
Thursday, April 8 Dinner: Pesto chicken, black bean pasta, kale/romaine caesar salad – Kirkland pesto sauce (broken up into six servings and frozen in sandwich bags); use one of those packets, over three thick and pounded out chicken breasts, cook for 15 minutes while a quarter pound of black bean pasta boils. Drain and throw it right in there with the chicken, mix around, bake for a few minutes and you’re all done.
Friday, April 9 Breakfast: Avocado toast – secret ingredient: everything seasoning on a toasted hard roll half.
Friday, April 9 Dinner: Shrimp (marinated in soy sauce) over whole grain rice, frozen Asian medley vegetables (microwavable), and chicken/kale dumplings (not made from scratch).
Saturday, April 10 Lunch: The Emilie – chicken caesar salad wraps – caesar substitute: Ken’s Parmesan Peppercorn dressing.
Sunday, April 11 Dinner: Easter Sunday Feast (although it ain’t the same if you’re not with your loved ones) – Lobster ravioli, grilled ribeye, mixed lettuce salad, and garlic bread.
Regular TV Watching:
Schitt’s Creek – Although I did take a shot at this season being boring and putting me to sleep, the last five or so episodes were as funny as they were heartwarming. Farewell to an important show for so many. LLL – Long Live the Levies!
Modern Family – Amanda and I have cried a lot this season. We will cry again as we prepare ourselves to watch the final episode that we DVRed and have been putting off watching since Wednesday.
Jeopardy – I usually can’t stand it because I HATE feeling stupid and Jeopardy makes me feel stupid, but Amanda is a HUGE fan. We’re both on hot streaks, though I’m still kicking myself for missing a final Jeopardy question the other night.
Blacklist – Quarantine ensures we continue to watch, which is saying something about the quality of the show.
Chicago PD – See Blacklist above.
What’s up for this week?
I’m going to read something, I swear. Doing the robotic routine is rotting my brain. We’re going to watch one of Uncut Gems, Rocketman, 1917 and Ozark.
