Menu for the Week

Again, I can’t believe how long it has been since I’ve consciously thought about blogging. I’m feeling so much better – almost like myself again. Yet, sitting for any length of time is still somewhat difficult and standing in one place without moving around is tiring, too. I am getting a bit bored and wrestless. I can’t do much out of the house without someone driving me, because I am still unable to drive. My head is a bit foggy from the pain medication. All I want to do is go back to my regular life. Cooking is such a big part of that. Feeling needy is definitely not my thing!

Luckily, I’ve been able to help out in the kitchen more and more. And, I’ve been going on errand excursions, too. We bought a lot of delicious fruits and vegetables from the farmers’ market on Saturday: grapes, apples, tomatoes, basil, broccoli, beets and artichokes. All of these need to be incorporated into this week’s dinner plan. We also have leftover steak from Sunday night’s dinner. S suggested steak fried rice. Sounds good to me.

Here is the plan:

Monday: JT’s Sausage and Pasta Soup
Tuesday: Steak Fried Rice, Broccoli with Soy, Garlic and Ginger
Wednesday: Chicken Parmesan Cutlets Milanese, Artichokes, Beets, Beet Greens
Thursday: Pasta with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella & basil
Friday: Boneless Pork Chops, Quinoa, Spinach
