january 9th - 15th, weekly dinner menu

this is an exciting week...first, monday night is the national championship game (auburn tigers versus the oregon ducks) which one boy in my house is VERY excited about!  in honor of auburn, we are having a symbolic dinner of roasted duck!  it will be our first time cooking duck- i'm excited for the adventure and the indulgence of rich, fatty duck meat in the name of football! and, this week marks the end to david's residency interview season!  after his last interview, the real work begins for him...creating his match list and then playing the wait and see game until march 17th, which is national match day!

this week's menu:

sunday: white bean soup, fresh loaf of bakery bread

monday: roasted duck with turnips, a crisp salad

tuesday: herb grilled cheese, tomato soup

wednesday: frozen pizza night- a good quality one from whole foods or trader joe's, spinach salad (don't fault me for taking the easy route tonight- it's just jack and i for dinner)

thursday: cassoulet

friday: macaroni and cheese, roasted brussels sprouts

saturday: take the night off from cooking; it's girls night out at my house!
