Have you ever had
Otherwise, we cooked at home if you can call me relying heavily on pizza, pasta and tortillas with cheese cooking... I'm ashamed, and I promise to be better, Mom!! This laziness caused us to have more food waste than we've had in a while. We threw away some produce, a few moldy pieces of bread but this I was kind of sad about:
I don't like buttermilk. I really, really don't. Makes me cringe just to think about it... But one of my girlfriends gave me an absolutely addicting killer recipe for creamy cilantro dressing (I'm yet to track the original recipe but this one sounds very similar). I cooked Mexican for a little get together with my sis' and best friend's families, so I doubled the recipe, and it was a hit! But it required only about a cup of buttermilk. Unfortunately, the closest store was completely out of the smaller containers (my luck!), so I had to buy the whole quart... of stuff I don't like... I was planning on making some pancakes but a week later more than half of the box of rancid stuff went down the drain...Yep...Silly me...
But I'll try to do better this week and, actually, stick to the menu. That's what planned so far:
Mon.- tomato soup, grilled cheese sandwiches (OK, not healthy but I was doing laundry all day!!)
Tues. - steak, steamed spinach and broccoli
Wed.- turkey tacos (bumped from last week)
Thurs. - Asian-inspired salmon, couscous, stir-fry
Fr.- cabbage and bean soup, rolls
Sat.- dinner with friends
Sun.- meatballs, mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli
And what's on your menu this week?
