Fortuitous Blogging

I have been off-line for so long, it feels so strange to even look at my blog. A little over a month haitus, after only about 7 months on the job, and I am truly missing the writing and cooking. I don’t know whether I’ll be able to get back to the cooking or photography anytime soon, given that I am not able to bend, lift or twist for a while longer. Still, we have been planning menus and having delicious meals at our house BECAUSE of 44dinner.

When I had my surgery, and knew that I’d be laid-up for a while, our former baby-sitter, ML, came back to work for us in the afternoon-evenings to help with shuttling the girls and with dinners. Well, what better way to keep consistency in our lives than with food. ML has been cooking from recipes on the site and we have been eating our old favorites. The girls even tried, and loved, the Cambodian spring rolls that S & I tested this summer.

Here is our menu for this week:
Monday: Burgers, Corn Salad
Tuesday: Filet of Sole Meuniere, Cauliflower, Israeli Couscous
Wednesday: Rotisserie Chicken (farmer’s market), Quinoa, Veggies TBD, Salad
Thursday: Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce
Friday: Brisket with Noodles (my Mom made this while she was here and froze some…Yea!), Carrots, Jewish Apple Cake

Happy New Year!
