Food From Ages Past

I've been very delinquent in food blogging and somewhat delinquent in food preparing - which, admittedly for me, means cooking 3-4 suppers a week instead of 6, but such is life.

Saddle her back up and hop back on.

Going backwards a bit:

(This is an exercise in warding off alzheimers - try to remember what you've eaten for each meal for the last 5 some odd weeks)

Friday, 3/18 - Pasta with Vodka Sauce, Grilled Chicken, Comeback Sauce, Roasted Potatoes, Asparagus, Hollandaise, Pavlova for dessert.

Saturday, 3/19 - We went to the St. Patrick's Parade all day, and I made a BBQ feast for supper. Pulled Pork, Beans, Slaw, Lemon Mint Sorbet.

Sunday, 3/20 - We had church book study to which I contributed fruit - There were all sorts of other goodies there - dips and finger sandwiches and such.

Monday, 3/21 - Pork Tenderloin, Mashed Taters, Biscuit Bread, Salad

Tuesday, 3/22 - Leftovers/MishMash

Wednesday, 3/23 - Buttermilk chicken, rice, roasted broccoli.

Thursday, 3/24 - I went out to eat for a friends birthday dinner - Rest of family had cheese ravioli. Have I told you about cheese ravioli? You get it frozen from Kroger, boil it for four minutes, drain, and pour a jar of spaghetti sauce over it. It's not nearly so terrible for you as the prepared foods you can buy at the store, but it's just as fast and easy and the family still feels fed. It's Paul's culinary specialty for when I'm out of pocket. Out of pocket is a great phrase.

Friday, 3/25 - Paul took kids to a baseball game and the little ones feasted on a hotdog and a hamburger and even some icees, I hear. Then he came home and we ordered out Roosters with some friends. Sometimes, you need to order out on a Friday night. (Though you can see what I mean by delinquency)

Saturday, 3/26 - Eason's birthday party! Hot dogs on the grill, chips, grapes, homemade pickles

Sunday, 3/27 - Lunch - Sam's club pizza!
Supper - Reuben Dip, Rotel, Chicken Tortilla Soup, Italian Sauteed Shrimp,
Fettucine Alfredo, Spinach Salad, Strawberry Shortcake, we're fat, it's the sabbath, what can I say.
