I proudly (and with a bit of nervousness) voted last week at an advanced polling station here in Georgia. I know that we will all be glued to our televisions as the results are reported on Tuesday night and I won't say that I am not completely anxious about the outcomes. This is such an important election...if you haven't done so already, please make your voice heard and go vote! I am crossing my fingers for what I believe is the only acceptable outcome.
And, now, menu plans for your week:
Monday- Roasted vegetables over buttery pasta and topped with parmesan cheese.
Tuesday- Chicken Chili Verde for ELECTION night! I am going to serve this with lots of topping options- tortilla chips, sour cream, cheddar cheese, avocado slices, and lime wedges. And, of course, corn bread. There has to be corn bread.
Wednesday- Egg Wraps. So simple, so satisfying, and delicious.
Thursday- A salad of apple, lentils, beets, and prosciutto. This salad is so good and perfectly combines the flavors of fall into a lighter dish. I love it with a good crisp IPA beer and crusty, buttery bread. We also love it equally when made vegetarian---I leave out the prosciutto and add sliced, raw fennel which adds an excellent and satisfying crunch.
Friday – Pizza night while we share drinks during happy hour(s) with our neighbors and let the children run wild!
Saturday - Grilled hot dogs and sausages while we watch college football on the porch.
Sunday – Garlicky Greens and Chickpeas with a roasted chicken.
