There have been two themes running through my dinner menus lately: simple, light entrees that are full of whole grains, and grilled dishes. This menu gets us out at the grill on Monday and Friday. Make sure to pour a glass of your favorite beverage to sip while you grill!
A Savvy Week: Chicken and Millet
Monday: Blackened beef with Thai chile noodles
Tuesday: Spring carrot sauté with olives, garlic and millet, with shrimp
Wednesday: Indian butter chicken with basmati rice
Thursday: Thai eggs with millet and arugula
Friday: Grilled chicken sandwiches with lemon chive aioli with herb-grilled potato wedges
Make the blackened beef with Thai chile noodles. If you have time, let the steak come to room temperature before grilling.
Total prep and cooking time: 50 minutes
