I do a lot of cooking most weekends, it just works out better for my family at this point in time. Unless we have sports practices, games, tournies or other activities to attend, I try to make progress for the week on Saturday & Sunday. Sometimes I bake, but generally I am a cook, not a baker, unless it's a special occasion.
This weekend is Fathers Day here in America, so we treat it like a holiday. I made a chicken and rice with bacon dinner last night. Tonight, will be spaghetti carbonara with grilled garlic breadsticks and a grilled romaine salad. Sunday will be a dry rubbed flat iron steak, grilled, with dried oregano & basil, garlic powder and pepper. Along with the steak, I will make some seared jumbo scallops. Can't decide yet on a sauce for them.... But I'm doubling up the protein since A) the steak is 1.5# and B) I also have two growing sons to feed. I'm forgoing a starch since I figure we will fill up on the protein. Still noodling sides, but thinking of another grilled salad and some haricots verts.
What about you? What are you making this weekend?
