We continue to make our way through the fridge, freezer and pantry. We shop only for fresh fruits and vegetables. A review of current provisions shows limited options for a “Sunday night dinner”–salted bacalau (which requires an overnight soak), a whole chicken (frozen solid), some t-bones (also frozen). Clearly some planning ahead is in order for dinners this week.
We do have a cache of tiny fingerling potatoes. And I roasted some beets on Friday that we didn’t eat. We also have lemons from Mom’s garden. So for dinner tonight…one purchase: fish (cod, halibut…) to pan roast with lemons, capers and parsley (also from Mom’s garden). Roasted potatoes, and an avocado/beet salad with shallot vinaigrette (that I made a couple nights ago).
