It's Menu Planning Time: What Should I Cook This Week

Posted By on Thu, May 5, 2011 at 9:22 AM

Do you guys ever have those weeks where you basically forget to go grocery shopping and then end up making weird things with whatever odd and ends are in your refrigerator because you're too hungry and impatient to restock once the dinner bell rings? Well, I'm at the end of one those weeks and the cupboards are bare — Fort Maloney is down to a box bran flakes, a jar of mayonnaise and some dried seaweed. Not exactly the makings of a decent meal.

But I'm also super-duper distracted with a pile of passed-deadline music assignments that are pulling my brain in 8 billion different directions — I'm writing features on outlaw country, local hip-hop, Colombian psych-dance and an indie-prog band — and the thought of stepping into a grocery store and actually having to make decisions is epicly intimidating.

Which is where you guys come in — I need your suggestions so I don't do anything stupid. The famished mind thinks weird thoughts, and I have the sneaking suspicion that if I were left to my own resources I'd come home with nothing but ground beef, birthday cake and tonic water. (No seriously, those are the three things I'm craving right now. And I'd kind like to eat them at the same time. No, I'm not pregnant, just a little unstable at the moment. Did I mention I'm hungry?)

So, my beloved Bites-sters, what ya got for me? Recipes, ingredients, quick-witted barbs about my spazzy state of being are all welcome and all appreciated — get at me in the comments. In the mean time I'll be making myself a mayonnaise and bran-flake sushi roll.
