Last week we were struck with illness in our house, and took a few days off from life as a result.  I sometimes think it’s God’s way of telling us to slow down a little and get some rest.  All are better now, so back to the usual.

Tuesday:  Tomato soup (with spinach and stars), pesto/provolone/ham melts (My soup starts off with sweating some carrots and onion in butter and olive oil, then add in broth and diced tomatoes, season with salt, pepper, chopped basil, maybe a dab of honey if it’s super acidic, puree it all after it simmers…then you can add in other stuff, too.  Like a splash of cream for creamy tomato)

Wednesday: Lamb Burgers with feta and tzatziki, sweet potato fries, and Greek salad

Thursday:  Spaghetti and Meatballs with salad (I made a large batch of meatballs awhile ago and froze them in portions, so Doug just has to make some noodles while I’m at work and reheat the meatballs and sauce)

Friday:  Country Fried Steak with gravy over egg noodles with broccoli

Saturday:  Cookout with friends

Sunday:  …raid the fridge?

Man this time of the year seems so busy!!  What exciting meals do you have planned for this week?
