What I Cooked

Sunday: Nachos with re-fried beans, corn and tomato salsas, guacamole

Monday: Penne with TVP "Bolognese" sauce, pea salad, garlic cheese bread

Tuesday: Baked potatoes with broccoli and cheese sauce

Wednesday: Ate at church

Thursday: Evening meeting, leftovers

Friday: We had friends over for a fondue party. When we made the plans a month ago, we thought it was for the week of the Publican and the Pharisee, but we miscalculated. When we realized the mistake it was too late to reschedule to another day before Lent. We had a delicious dinner and a lot of fun playing cards. I didn't even think to take any pictures, so here's some of the fondue I ate as leftovers. Definitely doesn't do it justice.

Saturday: The plan was to go to Five Guys so James could get his cheeseburger fix before Cheesefare week, but the poor guy had a terrible sore throat. All he wanted was soup. I made this gypsy soup from The New Moosewood Cookbook, which is one of my favorites. It has a delicious broth and lots of immune boosting ingredients. Turns out James has the flu, so probably lots of soup will be eaten at our house this week.


  1. Ooo, poor James. It's no fun having the flu!

    I hope you keep posting these during Lent - we really need some new ideas on what to make for dinner!! You've been an inspiration! ;)

  2. hope he feels better soon!

    that soup looks lovely!

  3. Emily--I am planning to keep posting these. So far it's working out pretty well as an aid to meal-planning.

    I'm also going to do recipe posts on Fridays.

    Poor James, he's just miserable. Wish there was more I could do than just keep fixing soup!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts--I love hearing from you!
