Prepping for the Week
I just spent the past 4 hours prepping food for the week. In the above photo, starting from the upper left and going clockwise, is a bag of cleaned and trimmed green beans to go with a pork chop dinner SP is making on Wednesday, chicken seasoned with salt and pepper and sauteed for the chicken Caesar salad we're having on Tuesday, cooked green and red peppers and onions for taco night on Monday and the chicken that will go in the tacos, seasoned with cumin, chili powder and garlic powder and seared over high heat.
In addition to all this, I prepared garlic and parsley butter that I smeared over a loaf of French baguette and grated three kinds of cheeses (mozzarella, Pecorino and cheddar) that will become garlic bread with cheese. I also made meatballs and sauce for tonight's spaghetti and meatballs dinner. Lastly, I chopped three hearts of Romaine, minced red onion, shredded a carrot, diced a red pepper and halved some grapes tomatoes for the salad. My mother-in-law is bringing some antipasto and we'll have the banana chocolate chip muffins I made yesterday for dessert.
