Weekly Menu - Week of 4/28/08
Some of the things I bought at Costco include:
Ribeye Steaks - We had these last night and were kind of disappointed. I always opt for Ribeye over tenderloin because it's so much more flavorful, but these had practically no flavor at all. I have four more in the freezer and am now dreading making them. Any tips to bring flavor to a flavorless ribeye? Marinate in beef fat (a la Top Chef)?
Sugar Snap Peas - Dylan and I love snacking on these. She requests them in her lunch, and I packed them in mine as well. They are also great in salad (but not for Michael - they weirded him out).
Baby Cucumbers - Another great lunch item. These are grown hydroponically, and are delicious. I love them in salads or plain for snacking.
Haricots Verts - These small French green beans looked gorgeous, and since they are already trimmed, they will be super easy to prepare for a weeknight dinner. I'm thinking garlic and almonds.
Sabra Hummus - Yum, yum, yum
Vacuum-sealed Carnitas - I bought these because Stefania recommended them. Can't wait to try them on Thursday!
18 organic, free-range eggs - Passover is done, but we still have lots of matzoh in the house. Turns out both kids love Matzoh Brei!
Feta Cheese - It's not as gourmet as block feta, but I love getting the giant container of crumbled Feta from President. It's so convenient for omelets and salads, and both kids love it.
