The What’s-For-Dinner Worksheet

Fried Shrimp Rolls

Add vegetable oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. In a bowl mix together 1/2 cup flour, 1 cup club soda or seltzer, salt, and pepper. On a plate, mix about 1 cup bread crumbs or panko with a few tablespoons of fresh oregano. Dredge 1 pound shrimp in the flour mixture, then the bread crumbs. Fry them in a pan until cooked through, about 2 minutes a side. Drain on paper towels and stuff into split hot dog buns with tartar sauce. (Sometimes I hollow out the buns a bit with my fingers so they’re not too bready.)

I am head over heels in love with that dinner worksheet. Seriously. It’s awesome- especially the “are you sure it’s not a holiday?” part. Classic.

Once more, THANK YOU for bringing the AWESOME to us on a plate! Seriously, you don’t realize how many times I have gleaned such fab inspiration from your site. Can’t wait to make this!


Ok, that worksheet is perfection on paper! I’m thinking the possibilities are endless for decisions other than dinner, if you can turn this into a slightly more general template (whose turn is it to fold the laundry, where should we go on vacation, who gets to take the kids to the dr. for their checkup and shots….) See what I mean?


Love the worksheet – also true here that it is hard to find a meal that we all will eat without too many modifications. And the excitement at finding a meal like that!


Love this! Also your article in last month’s bon appetit- laugh out loud! I read it, read it to my husband, laughed some more then texted my sister to definitely read it upon getting her magazine! (she didn’t think it was as funny as me ((no kids)) but still liked it!)

Just wanted to say that I made these last night (saw the post and had all the ingredients, so just went for it)! They were a huge hit with everyone in my house. One person doesn’t like tartar sauce, and used the sweet chili sauce instead, which turned out to be amazing. I also added about 1/4 cup of coconut to the bread crumbs (I love coconut shrimp)! Thanks for another great recipe!
