And thank you all for your comments. I was moved by them all, every one. I think I contacted nearly all of you this morning via my email, but there was one I couldn't reply to via email and that was Meg in KS...A heartfelt, teary-eyed thank you to you dear.
Monday: Hamburgers and Hotdogs, Coleslaw, Chips
Leftovers from our cookout on Sunday. Not so many leftovers thank goodness, but enough for a meal for the two of us, of which I am glad.
Tuesday: 3 Bean Chili, Yellow Rice, Cornbread, Salad, Baked Cinnamon Apples
I have a few leftover beans on hand and chili seems a nice way to use them up. Lima Beans, Pork n Beans and Black beans are what I have.
Wednesday: Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Pasta, Green Salad, Rolls
An easy enough meal to make. I'll dice a cooked chicken breast and steam broccoli and toss with pasta and a homemade Alfredo sauce. Nothing to it but I'll bet it will be good!
Thursday: Quiche, Oven Fried Potatoes, Sliced tomato with basil on homegrown lettuce leaves
I like Quiche. John does too but call it anything but quiche, lol...Say the word 'Quiche' and he'll look at it hard and ask suspiciously, "What's that? Have I had it before? Do I like it?" Quiche will make a great evening snack for him after work because it reheats well in the microwave. I'll make a small quiche just enough to serve four, so there won't be tons of leftovers.
Friday: Chililadas, Red Cabbage and Carrot Salad with Cumin Dressing, Tangerines
I know I'll have leftover chili and rice and I just bought a new packet of corn tortillas. I'll make a casserole of enchiladas using the chili and rice as filling and some of the broth as the sauce. I know I had two Hispanic flavored dishes on my menu last week, but neither of them got made, hence the chili and leftover makeover for today.
Saturday: Fish Fillets, Coleslaw, Green Beans, Hushpuppies
I plan to stop on my way home and pick up the fish fillets and hushpuppies. I'll make the coleslaw and beans here at home.
Sunday: Stuffed Peppers, Rice, Baby Lima Beans, Banana Bread Cobbler
There was a good sale on bell peppers last week at the local store. Well worth stocking up, so I bought enough to chop for the freezer and have a meal of stuffed peppers. The recipe for the dessert is a new one. I'll let you know how that tastes.
