Party of 1/Party of 2….Sometimes You Never Know!

This week I was once again on my own except for the nights when our son joined me for dinner time after work. Which, for me, is tough not knowing but also not so bad depending on the day. I knew dinners would be hit or miss all week being our son had friends home for the week due to spring break….and the fact that young adults don’t plan anything too far ahead could mean I would get short notice of being a party of one or a party of two for dinner time. Yes, a fact that drives me a bit crazy but I have learned to roll with it. Add this with the fact that my husband was traveling for work for the week, meant that I got to choose when, if, and what, for that matter, I cooked each and every night.

So here is what my week looked like:

Saturday: my own homemade spicy black bean burgers

Sunday: tortellini veggie soup with bread sticks

***Although I still made this soup for me to enjoy for lunches all week long

Tonight we ended up going out for Chinese instead…my husbands request before he flew out in the morning.

Monday: Annie’s biscuits with eggs, cheese, and homemade chicken breakfast sausage

Wednesday: pulled pork salad ( my remake of the salad I had in Port Washington, WI a few weeks ago) IMG_0638

Thursday: pesto chicken and quinoa with cucumbers

Friday: out

I also threw together a quick mixture of artichokes, spinach, sundried tomatoes, olives, garlic, mushrooms, and chicken sprinkled with Greek seasoning for my lunches this week. So easy and quick to make, yet so tasty and filling. IMG_0832

What’s For Dinner?

I’ll be the first to admit, cooking this last week has not been at the top of my list. I was suppose to be on vacation, free of my normal routine. So meals have been thrown together at best, but that is all over now. It’s time to get over it and get back to life. So here is what this weeks meals look like:

Sunday: spaghetti and veggie marinara sauce with garlic bread sticks

Monday: chicken stir fry over rice

Tuesday: sea burgers, potato wedges, roasted green beans

Wednesday: chili and corn bread

Thursday: chicken noodle stove top casserole with mixed vegetable blend

Friday: leftovers

Saturday: make it yourself or starve:)

As always, if you see something that sounds good and you would like the recipe, comment or email me at rednatural1973@gmail.com and I will be happy to share it with you.
