Early June Meal Plan

Hello!
 
Can I give a shout-out to all of the parents out there? Everyone who not only had to weather this past year-plus themselves, but also help their kids navigate the unimaginable. Whether you have little kids and had to figure out how to be on Zoom with a small child attached to your ankle or cobble together day care so you could get to work, or you have teens or college-age kids and had to help them plot a course to get through their studies and social life (such as it was). Seriously, wow.
 
I am heading into high school graduation week for my younger son, and as I figure out the details with my parent compatriots and friends, there is a lot of wide-eyed “How did we get here?” headshaking; for multiple reasons, but most notably because of the “Where did the time go?” emotions (shared by the parents of any graduating class) and the "What a hell of a year” feelings. Friends, if I tell you I am feeling all of the feels (I know the cool kids no longer say that, but luckily I am not a cool kid), it’s an understatement.

In honor of my quasi-grown-up kids, this week I'm sending you some (some) of their all-time favorite recipes on the Mom 100. They’re some of my favorites, too, in no small part because we had them often, and now they have a lot of memories attached to them as well.
 
I’m not crying. YOU’RE crying.

When I make this, I have to stash a few for myself or else, by the time I get out there, they are all gone. Use only perfectly ripe tomatoes.

This is the perfect Caesar salad recipe: cheesy, crunchy, creamy, just like the one you would order in a restaurant, and so easy to make.

This has been a family favorite for years, and it costs just a few dollars to make. Canned tomatoes, garlic, onions, carrots, and red pepper all pull together to make a very soul-satisfying dish.

If my family could only have one meal for the rest of their lives, this might be it.

There’s always a green salad with dinner in our house—the crunchier the better. If I told you how many hearts of romaine we go through in a week, you’d be unsettled.

Juicy, tender dark meat seared, drizzled with garlic butter, and roasted in the oven is one of the easiest ways possible to create a simple dinner. Charlie has always greeted the sight of crispy-skinned chicken thighs with the kind of enthusiasm I reserve for lobster.

I know it’s not seasonal . . . but actually, we are expecting a kind of wet and chilly week, so I feel like this is still appropriate to put on deck. And in fact, I made it last week because my older son Jack was coming home, and good chicken noodle soup knows no season.

I know you may not need a recipe for this, but this is the best grilled cheese, made on the stove in a griddle or skillet. This is the thing I make after I’ve yelled, “Who wants lunch?” and everyone says, “I’m not really hungry,” and I yell, “I’m making grilled cheese,” and everyone says, “Oh, OK, then yes, please.”

Another comfort food. My gang does not tire of baked pastas, heavy on the cheese. This is chicken parmesan converted into a pasta casserole.

Scallions actually play a significant supporting role in this stir-fry. I based this recipe off a dish we ordered a lot from a Chinese restaurant called Lili’s that was a block away when the kids were growing up.

For as long as I can remember, quesadillas have been on the menu several times a month. No one tires of them, and they are the best way to make use of leftovers. These generously stuffed quesadillas turn a small amount of ground beef and whatever vegetables you have around into a perfect, cheesy dinner.

The dessert that gets requested the most. When chocolate meets peanut butter, only good things can happen.

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE . . .
