Weekly Menu Planning – January 2019

MidwesternerTT | Dec 27, 201804:53 PM     436

Let’s use this thread to share concise weekly dinner menus for each week in January.

Are you and your family spending time outdoors enjoying winter sports? Starting new classes at school or the gym? Or curled up with cozy books? How do you plan your week’s menu to make room for fun?

Planning a get-away from northern winters? Or heading north for snowy delights? And in either case, will you be cooking in unfamiliar kitchens?

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. 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.

If you are looking for inspiration or challenge in the kitchen, tell us what you’ll be trying with the Cookbook of the Month (COTM) crowd from Unforgettable: The Bold Flavors of Paula Wolfert's Renegade Life by Emily Kaiser Thelin. Or maybe the selected Dish of the Month (DOTM) (tagine or pozole) will make an appearance at your table.

The December discussion is still available for reporting the last week and follow-ups. https://www.chowhound.com/post/weekly...
