With this short upcoming week, I’m planning on making almost nothing in our little apartment kitchen (I’m not even going grocery shopping!). Instead, starting on Tuesday evening, the Husband and I will be dining chez my parents’, and dining really well, might I add. As I’ve mentioned before, food is a big, big deal in my household, and anytime we’re all together, we spend a lot of time thinking about it, cooking it, and eating it…which, when I think about it, is sort of the whole point of this blog! Come Christmas, we up the ante significantly with (multiple) food-related traditions. I seriously can’t WAIT.
Sunday – chickpea burgers (since I didn’t make them last week!)
Monday – finishing off the last of the broccoli pesto
Tuesday – travel day
Wednesday/Christmas Eve – my mom’s beef wellington. I’m so excited to get this recipe, I can hardly stand it!
Thursday/Christmas – Christmas goose
Friday – the smart thing would be leftovers. But I’m hoping posting this on the interwebs means that the world’s best seafood stew will be on the menu! (hint, hint, Mom!)
Saturday – my dad takes over the kitchen helm, and all the siblings + significant others become assembly workers making my grandmother’s Pierogi recipe
Sunday – travel day and the start of a serious exercise plan
As my mom said to me today, “hope you’re hungry and ready to beat that Pierogi dough!”
