What are you hungry for? 😋

Late January Meal Plan

Did you ever see the movie The Incredibles? If the answer is no, you must fix that this very weekend.  Yes, it’s an animated movie geared toward kids. But it’s SO wonderful and, in the way that only a handful of great kids’ movies are, layered with all sorts of nuance and cleverness for the adults.
It came out in 2004, and my younger son, Charlie, latched on to that movie in the way only a two-year-old can. It was all he wanted to watch, over and over and over again. (Jack was knee-deep in Thomas the Tank Engine paraphernalia at the time, and by the way, Thomas and the Magic Railroad is a movie I do not recommend. Let’s just say it wasn’t Peter Fonda’s greatest work. I am serious. Peter Fonda was in it, playing to a cartoon train. Also: Alec Baldwin.)
Why am I babbling about this? I actually have an answer (not always the case). Often when I am thinking about what to make for dinner, I think of a line Helen Parr (aka Elastagirl, the mom superhero) says when she is trying to get Violet (who can make herself invisible and also create force fields) to pick something to eat on leftover night. Helen says, “We have steak, pasta . . . what are you hungry for?”
That all sounded a little funnier and more relevant in my head, but it’s typed out now. Even though I really love to cook, even though I cook for a living, there 100% are moments where I just have no idea what to make for dinner and need some suggestions from the family. Suggestions often include: “I dunno” or “Whatever” or “Anything is fine.” But when I am asking, I am really asking: What are you hungry for?
Here’s what’s on deck for this week. I think. Unless someone gets hungry for something else and speaks up about it. 

This recipe come to us by way of a dear friend of mine (guess what her name is?). An eclectic and interesting blend of herbs, spices, citrus, and maple syrup makes this a very memorable salmon dish.

A crunchy salad studded with chickpeas is tossed with a creamy, lemony, savory dressing with a tiny kick of heat. I can eat a salad like this for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Inexpensive, comforting, flavorful, and tender, only fifteen minutes of hands-on time, and almost guaranteed leftovers.

I know will deliver without fail.

If I’m making a stir-fry, Gary is very happy. If I am making a stir-fry with noodles, he wonders what I’m angling for. A healthy and quick shrimp lo mein recipe, colorful and so easy, is perfect for a satisfying weeknight dinner.

The flavors of Korean cooking are front and center in this recipe. It’s an amazing balance of spicy, sweet, and savory. A nice way to pull tofu into the repertoire.

The kind of fudgy chocolatiness that wimpy people say is too chocolatey—silly little rabbits. I have friends who make these in lieu of birthday cake every
year—arguably one of my top five most popular recipes.
