Menu for the week

In the new house, enjoying cooking in a real kitchen again. I’ve been letting my wife do the grocery shopping which:

A) to her means ordering instacart and letting some rando choose your meat and produce

B) typically leads to a house full of diet cokes, lunchables, frozen pizzas, and not much real food

So today I planned meals for the week, built a list, and executed my list with striking speed and precision. I’ve been cooking since I was about 12, and know my way around a grocery store. Something is wrong with millennial women, they can’t shop, cook, or clean worth a shit.

After washing, drying, putting away the produce, I got a few things ready for the week. Pickled some red onions and English cukes, made my butter fresh from cream, got it washed, shaped, saved the buttermilk and stored the butter in the fridge for later this week.

Todays lunch- sobrasadas con queso. Grilled bread, goat cheese, crispy Spanish chorizo, honey, and fresh herbs

Tonight- pulled pork, kings Hawaiian rolls, Glory collards, Mac & cheese

Monday- Canard a l’orange. Found some beautiful duck breasts, going to render those out real nice & get them hella crispy. Serving them with fondant potatoes, Brussels sprouts, obviously the orange sauce, and I’m pickling some blackberries in balsamic. Have a really nice Penner Ashe Pinot noir I’m going to open with this meal.

Tuesday- Tandoori chicken. Yogurt-marinated thighs, cooked over coals, going to serve those with a tatziki sauce, basmati rice, and a cucumber, tomato, red onion salad

Wednesday- leftover pulled pork quesadillas, cilantro crema, pickled red onions

Thursday- filets on the KJ seasoned w HC black, duck fat fries from the saved rendered duck fat, herb caper compound butter from the butter I made today

Friday- wife’s night to cook, she’s making the tiktok baked feta pasta

Then next weekend w the whole family at the beach. More meat smoking to ensue.

I’m convinced those women are probably outsmarting us.

They go, “oh you shop and cook so much better than I do. I’m just not good at it.” And then you create a menu for the week, buy all the groceries, and cook your brains out. Then we convince ourselves we like to grocery shop and cook. And voila… everybody is happy.
