Weekly Menu Planning – February 2021

MidwesternerTT | Jan 27, 202105:17 AM     601

Let’s use this thread to share concise weekly dinner menus for each week in February. It's helpful if you can include your location and how many people you are feeding. Links to recipes are always appreciated, and sources help.

“The torch of love is lit in the kitchen.” What will you have for your Valentine’s Day meal?

Will your sports parties for family watching of the big games feature old favorites or something new? If you’re looking to expand your menu variety, the Dish of the Month recipes, voting in progress, will be a soup (either laksa or posole), And the Cookbook of the Month, already decided, will be Italian cuisine from Lidia Bastianich books

Are you a rebel? We’ve laughed together as we discussed that some weeks as soon as we make a plan we reject what’s on the list for tonight. My own plans sometimes have as many circles and arrows as a complex football play diagram, but at least I have a starting point and reminders of what ingredients are on-hand. We all know plans can change, so it’s fine (practically expected) when your week gets rearranged from your posted plan. You may choose to report actuals for the prior week to share ideas with others.

The January discussion is still available for reporting the last week and follow-ups.
