What to Cook This Week

Hello again!
Have you been playing around on the new website? Me too! It’s a shiny new toy that I’ve been waiting for many months to open, and now I just want to play and play and play.
But I have work to do. This week, you’re getting a twofer newsletter. Tomorrow, as you likely know, is the Superbowl, and so I will toss a menu your way (Toss! Ha!) in case you are a last-minute planner or need a final dip to supplement your menu or bring to a friend’s house. For reasons unclear to me, my younger NYC-born son is a 49ers fan, so he is elated, and there will be a loud group of people here tomorrow. My job is to keep everyone awash in chicken wings and chili.
Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Wings: Wings rekindled my on-again, off-again relationship with my air fryer. They are totally crispy outside and tender inside, and they taste like great bar wings.

Make a Nacho Bar: Fun and interactive and vegetarian (unless you want to throw some sautéed chorizo or chili into the mix as an option). Make all of the toppings beforehand, and just rotate trays of cheese-covered tortilla chips into the oven as needed.

Game Day Chili: This is a classic, crowd-pleasing ground beef and bean chili.  And then it’s all about the toppings. Make sure to have plenty of salsa, sour cream, shredded cheese, jalapenos, avocado or guac, and chopped onions or scallions. Final tip, especially if you have teenagers in the house: you can never have too much shredded cheese.

If you have vegetarians in the midst, you may also want to think about a vegetarian chili as well.

Chili is really an all-in-one meal served up on piles of rice (brown or whiteyour choice). But I usually like to add a simple salad to the menu. I’m going with a classic Caesar Salad with Garlicky Croutons this year. And if I get things done in time, a few pans of Pepper Jack and Green Chili Corn Muffins.

I’m thinking My New Favorite Oatmeal Cookies.

Ready for the rest of the week? I'm not parsing out meals day by day this week—instead, I'll line up some suggestions for dinners that you can mull over and pick from freely.
Monday night I’m sure we’ll either be eating leftover chili or ordering a pizza. If you are cooking, you can consider One Skillet Creamy Mustard Pork Chops, 5-Ingredient Honey Ginger Salmon, or One Skillet Tuscan Tortellini.

Other recipes to think about as we bully through the start of the shortest (but maybe the coldest) month of winter: Classic Italian Meat Sauce, Vegetable Quesadillas, Lamb Stew with White Wine, Orange, and Fennel, and the Easiest Shortcut Chicken Ramen Noodle Soup.

Side dishes and salads that might make the cut this week: simple, creamy, cheese topped Smashed Garlic Butter Sweet Potatoes with FetaThe Best Parmesan Roasted Brussels SproutsI have to make a double batch of these every time, since the bowl diminishes considerably before it gets to the table. Especially since my husband Gary finally acknowledges that Brussels sprouts are indeed good. The Best Garlic Bread Ever makes February seem not so bad. And Kale, Cabbage, and Mint Salad with Peanut Dressing in a bowl is perfect for binging Schitt’s Creek (I’m heartbroken over its coming to an end).

And if you are going to preheat the oven for a dessert this week, maybe it should be Butterscotch Brownies aka Blondies. All of the heft and sheer delightfulness of a brownie, but without the chocolate. Amazing.

See you next week!
