This week I did not feel any creativity for meal planning, so I let the March issue of Everyday Food do the work for me. In most issues, they supply a week's worth of quick recipes along with a grocery list.
So far we've made lemon-roasted chicken with arugula salad and dilled orzo.
And last night, balsamic skirt steak with polenta and steamed broccoli.
(If you look closely, you can see Maggie's nose in the lower left corner sniffing the steak.)
More than anything, I appreciated the sides in the dishes. Have you ever made orzo? If not, I'd highly suggest this perfect complement instead of rice. For this side, I simply cooked 1 cup of orzo, as suggested on the box. (btw, find orzo with the pasta in your supermarket) Once the water was drained, I added 1/2 tsp of dried dill, 1 tbsp olive oil, and salt/pepper to taste. Yum!
