Wow! The weeks are flying by. It just seems like I sat down to write last weeks meal plan. Sheesh!
One of the meals from last week that was noteworthy was the polenta pizza.
Really good. Ron actually tackled the job of preparing it. He made three options – cheeseless, less cheese, and more cheese(of course that was for him). I’m sure my mom is laughing at me right now for saying something with polenta was really good. I absolutely refused to eat polenta growing up. My Italian grandmother always made that as part of her big Sunday meal. If I’d only knew then what I know now…I missed out on a lot of good things!
I’m loving easy meals lately. If it takes more than an hour, requires lots of chopping and more than 2 dishes, I’m not doing it. Here’s what the week is looking like at our house:
Sunday: Veggie Stuffed Peppers w/ chickpeas
Monday: Butternut Squash Ravioli with roasted veggies
Wednesday: After work party for Mama. Ron and the kids get leftovers!
Thursday: Spinach Gratin w/ Crunchy Crumb Topping
Friday: Black Bean and Spinach Quesadilla
As you sit down for dinner this week with your family, say an extra prayer of thanks for everyone in your life. Give an extra long squeeze to your kids, spouse, other family members, friends. The tragedy in Connecticut weighs heavy on my heart. I have no words.
What are you having for dinner this week?
