So here's our plan:
Sunday (the first football Sunday, even):
with good bread
And Phil's planning on making some decadent mid-afternoon snack for football watching, probably involving some sort of boxed cheese product, so we'll pretend dinner's healthy by calling it salad. With steak. And more cheese.
Lentils (I've been craving them lately) probably cooked then sauteed with a bit of onion, garlic, maybe red pepper?
Sauteed greens -- maybe chard, maybe spinach
Leftovers, probably. Or take-out, if the withdrawal is too much to bear.
Gnocci with tomato sauce and sausage. I bought some gnocci at the Clarkston Farmers' Market a few weeks ago, and have been anxious to try it. It's spicy red pepper, so I thought it might be yummy with sausage. We have some spicy Italian chicken sausage in the freezer. We shall see.
That's the plan! Wish me luck...
