Sunday: It's almost the end of the summer, and Sveinn is out of town building a replica Viking longhouse, but the Pizza Quest continues! Kris and I went to St Louis Pizza & Wings, in Florissant. It was hard to find the little store-front take-out pizza place, hidden in the back of a strip mall at right angles to the main road. But it was worth doubling back to find it. This is excellent cheese pizza, with a chewy crust, lots of cheese, and a sauce that hits the just-right balance point between sweet and tangy. I want to go back again!
Monday: Something creative with the leftover chicken. Pasta?
Tuesday: Dinner from the synagogue where I teach Hebrew in an after-school program on Tuesdays. They've started this as a fund-raiser, marketed mostly to parents of the students but also available for the teachers: pick up dinner when you pick up your child! Dinner tonight is chicken fajitas.
Wednesday: Polish sausage and sauerkraut; potatoes; brussels sprouts.
Thursday: Fend for yourself, eat-up-the-leftovers night.
Friday: Chicken curry; spinach; rice.
Saturday: Beef stew with beans.
Sunday: Eat out as part of Kris's Summer Pizza Quest. (We went to Cecil Whittaker's for North County Pizza. Verdict? The crust was too wimpy and the sauce too sweet, the cheese was just OK, but the heavy pile of fresh vegetables on the veggie pizza was pretty good.)
Monday: Sveinn made something good for us to eat, but I was so tired that I don't remember what it was.
Tuesday: Pasta with tuna and vegetables in tomato sauce
Wednesday: Baked chicken breast, bulgur salad
Thursday: At my mother-in-law's house
Friday: At my mother-in-law's house
Saturday: At my mother-in-law's house
This is a no-money-left week. Stretching the budget through creative use of what I have on hand!
Sunday: Dinner and Downton Abbey at Mom's house
Monday: Clear-out-the-fridge Curry.Slowly brown onions and garlic with garam masala in olive oil and butter. Add that cup of leftover chickpeas, a half-package of spinach, the end bit of tomato paste, some water, brown rice, and half of the leftover turkey from the freezer. Simmer until it smells SO GOOD.
Tuesday: Omelet made with peppers, sheep's cheese, and home-made gravlax.
Wednesday: The rest of the leftover turkey with hollandaise sauce, served over rice and peas.
Thursday: Fried eggs on Spanish rice.
Friday: Dinner out with the family.
Saturday: Dinner with Sveinn.
Is there a way to archive posts so that I do not see them, but they are not deleted and gone forever? Much of this past year is much too painful for me to review.
