October 27 - 31

Monday, October 27

Keeping it simple tonight -- we're playing the pasta card, and it's only Monday.  Feels like it's gonna be a crazy week, so we'll start off with baby steps.  And so:

Pasta with tomato sauce and Italian sausage.  Just like what it sounds.  Probably whole wheat penne, some sauce from the freezer (made sauce this summer, and found out that about 100 tomatoes makes about 12 cups of sauce...  so we savor it a bit at a time) and some sausage tossed in to keep the meat-loving members of the household happy!

Grilled cheese sandwiches!!!  (see Monday, i.e. crazy week)

Thursday, October 30

Grilled salmon:  mix up some maple syrup and balsamic vinegar, drizzle it on...

Friday, October 31

Happy Halloween!  I imagine dinner will be fun-size Milk Duds.   Maybe Hot Tamales.

Fish tacos:  Cook some flaky fish (whatever looks good at the store this weekend) and season with fajita-like spices.  Make tacos with chopped red bell pepper, red onions, shredded cabbage, whole grain tortillas, cheese, salsa, sour cream.  Maybe black beans too!

Take out, baby!

Saturday, October 25

I think we might eat out tonight.  Meet up with Phil's high school friend.

Sunday, October 26

Believe it or not, we bought half a season of Lions tickets this year, so we'll be at the game today.  We'll probably be stuffed full of tailgating food.  Haven't planned that far yet, but probably some sort of ribs will happen.  Maybe burgers.  Something grilled and really bad for us.  But it will complement beer well.

October 13 - 19

So, it's supposed to turn from balmy to cool and rainy this week...  I tried to think about that when I picked food.  Cool and rainy = soup!  I love soup!

Here goes...

Saturday, October 18
It's our anniversary, but it's also the night before I run the Detroit half marathon, so I'll need my typical pre-race carb meal...  pizza and beer

Sunday, October 19
Running the race in the morning, so we're going out to big brunch after that.  Probably just munchies the rest of the day.

My Dear Friend Dave...

I've heard you haven't been able to decide what to make for dinner.  I created this blog to give you some ideas.  Enjoy!  Love, Karen
