Here piggy piggy

What are we eating this week? Lots of charred animal flesh because Ben just got a new grill (that he and Harry assembled while I took Jack to get tested for H1N1 yesterday afternoon. Awesome)

And last night? We ate the WORST meals. Ben came home from the store with wine, Hostess powdered Donettes, and kosher hot dogs and that's pretty much what we had. With leftover taquitos, sliced grapes, and TJ's baked cheese crucnhies (like cheetos with real cheese).

But I swear, we'll do better this week.

So, I'm thinking about this:

so help me, we're going to Pizza Hut again. with a coupon. we are so cosmopolitan it kills me.

blanched green beans and pea pods, carrots, and celery with dill dip
(this meal is a bit of dieter's dilemma for me because I can either eat a teeny, tiny hamburger (like 2.5-3 ounces) or I can eat a regular sized veggie burger. blurgh)

chicken salads
sliced pears

steamed broccoli or cauliflower (whichever looks better)
more strawberries

chicken tacos
veggies and salsa

dinner out-- maybe we'll brave the throngs of incoming students and have dinner on the terrace or maybe we'll try this ridiculous place across from Ben's office called like Fat Sandwiches or something that serves things like mozzarella sticks and french fries ON a sandwich. the possibilities, I am trying to say, are endless

baked potatoes
tossed salad
(all of this prepared fresh, not the night before, and hopefully eaten after the kids are snug in their own beds and paired with a lovely red)

Hmmmm, sometimes, my menus sounds JUST LIKE school lunches. But none of the fruit is canned, so that's a key difference.

Here's Jack, spreading a horrible virus all over town. More about that later.


  1. Yum! Again I am in awe of your planning and vegetable cooking abilities. I'll be thinking of you when I am eating quesadillas for the third night in a row.

    Fat Sandwich is pretty much the most amazing thing that has ever happened to food.
