Hi everyone, and happy Thursday already. Life is always busy, but time really starts flying as we near the end of another school year, doesn’t it? Papers are due and there are finals to study for and concerts and picnics and banquets and yadda yadda yadda — none of this stops the fact that people still get hungry and dinner must be served. People are hungrier in fact, and Mom must come to the rescue.
Speaking of MOM, a side note: my youngest read the blog and made me crepes from scratch for Mother’s Day (awe!!). She got a little freaked out when she came to the “turn on the stove” part of the recipe and had to recruit the Husband, who up until Sunday had never made a crepe in his life. They did great together in the kitchen and their first run at crepes was a flying success and warmed the cockles of my mama heart. I hope you got a nice brunch, too.
Anyway, we’re all in a rush, so let’s cut to the chase. The DamFam has two major track events over the next two days so dinner will need to come together quickly. Tonight, I’ll be using the sale Sendik’s Pasta to make our favorite Pasta alla Carbonara. No, it’s not low fat. No, you shouldn’t be eating it if you’re trying to fit into a string bikini by Saturday. But hungry runners demand carbs and there’s no better way to load up than with “CARB”onara. I’m running five miles later on just for the sole purpose of eating this pasta tonight. You’ll need a good supply of Parmesan cheese for this dish, and in all fairness, I need to tell you that Kraft Parmesan is on sale if you’re running low. While I’m trying to keep the food snobbery in check and I hold nothing against cheese in a green can, I personally prefer to use Sendik’s Grated Parmesan here – maybe even an imported Parm’ if I’m feeling spendy. The cheese is an important part of the dish, so use the nicest one you can afford.
Wild Caught Alaskan Cod Fillets and Russet Potatoes are featured in the current sale ad, making this the perfect time to enjoy delicious Weeknight Fish and Chips. You’ll be hard pressed to find an easier fish recipe, this one is a winner, and kids love it. I’m not even bothering with a vegetable (hey, there are pickles in tartar sauce, that counts, right?) — I’ll just set a big bowl of the sale Crimson Red Seedless Grapes in the middle of the table and people can help themselves.
Lastly, and looking ahead to weekend entertaining — Grilled Sirloin Steaks with Blue Cheese Walnut Butter is a lovely dinner to serve to company, and makes great use of the sale Sendik’s Natural Black Angus Top Sirloin Steaks. It would also be the perfect time to incorporate the Cheese of the Month (which just happens to be a blue): the Carr Valley Glacier Penta Crème. Even if you’re not having company, you should plan on serving this to yourself if you’re a fan of the steak/blue cheese combination. Yum.
