Gearing up for work this week only I will be working alone this morning. My son Chris is on a service project trip for the week in Clarksville, MS, and Nancy, my side-kick has a doctor appointment.
I’m used to working alone, I’ll be fine. It’s all about being organized and a succession of tasks to optimize productivity. I love thinking through this process. Today is a huge prep day as tomorrow I deliver. Loads of cooking will take place tomorrow morning.
To be green, I really try to do all oven roasting and baking in the same time block. This will also cut down on the intense heat in the kitchen.
The other very important thing I have to think about is optimal freshness for my clients. I always make fish the day it’s delivered and any baking is done the day of delivery as well.
Here’s my menu plan for this week:
Caesar salad with homemade ciabatta croutons
Crunchy panko fish fillets with mild seasoning, homemade low-fat tartar sauce
Roasted red potatoes with garlic
Shredded slaw with tangy mustard seed dressing
Spicy orange beef with broccoli
Roasted cauliflower and broccoli
Mixed bean salad with fresh herbs from my garden
Banana walnut chocolate chip muffins
Time to get around!
Have a good day-
