Curtis Stone’s What’s for Dinner?
Since we haven’t been successful in having Curtis Stone come to our homes in person, we’ll have to settle for the next best thing: Curtis Stone What’s For Dinner? Delicious Recipes for a Busy Life Cookbook! And just so you know, there’s no settling going on here – this is one fabulous cookbook…
Neatly divided, each night of the week has a different theme:
Motivating Mondays (start the week off right with healthy fare)
Time-Saving Tuesday (because so often Tuesday is “to-do” day)
One-Pot Wednesday (is there anything better for midweek pick-me-up)
Thrifty Thursday (so there’s a bit more for splurging on the weekend?)
Five-Ingredient Friday (being exhausted ≠ drive through window)
Dinner Party Saturday (food + family + friends = joy3)
Family Supper Sundays (#1 best way to grow happy, healthy kids)
And one final chapter, because no dinner is complete without Something Sweet (Peaches with Melted Bûcheron…be still my heart!)
The layout is just like we want it: enticing photograph (every dish!!) and complete recipe on one page (thank you for listening, cookbook editors).
Last week we went for Motivating Monday’s Grilled Chicken with Arugula and Zucchini Salad with Lemon-Caper Vinaigrette (henceforth dubbed A to Z salad). A simple supper that was packed with bright, light flavors. The star of the show was the Lemon-Caper Vinaigrette – a snappy sauce that made both the salad and chicken come alive – just a splash was enough to bring a little mojo to what could otherwise be Mundane Monday.
Last Sunday, Julia, Valerie and I headed to the Tanger Outlets in Texas City where Curtis Stone will be signing copies of What’s For Dinner. Who knows, maybe we’ll even convince his to come to our house for Sunday Supper –Martha
