Busy, Busy, Busy!

I've got a lot going on this week in the kitchen! Two cakes and a baby shower means that firstly my grocery money is going to some specific ingredients and secondly my cooking time and energy will be not be as available for meals. So, I'm going to try to keep it simple and stick to what I already have.

Monday: Grilled Chicken Breasts with slow roasted tomatoes, asiago, and fresh basil, steamed broccoli, steamed brown rice

(For the chicken, roast the tomatoes in the afternoon, then after you grill the chicken, drop some tomatoes on each breast, sprinkle heavily with grated asiago...broil them a few minutes so the cheese melts and the tomatoes warm up, then toss some tiny ribbons of fresh basil on top and serve.)

Here's a simple way to make pretty basil ribbons:

Tuesday: pancakes, fresh fruit

Wednesday: Frozen meal swap meal

Thursday: out

Friday: grilled steak, baked potatoes, steamed edamame

Saturday: pizza
