- baked potatoes
- corn on the cob
- tossed green salad with tomatoes and red bell peppers
Our little local organic bakery got in a shipment of organic produce this afternoon so I bought corn, tomatoes, strawberries, sweet peppers, apples, pears, baby spinach, spring mix greens, broccoli and sweet potatoes. That fresh corn on the cob was a welcome taste of summer!
I’m signed up to bring a casserole to Compassion Outreach, a local organization that provides free medical care and a meal twice a month to those in need. This is our church’s turn to provide the meal. I have a HUGE disposable pan to fill so I figure that a rice-based dish will be relatively economical for me. I had a couple of smoked sausages in the freezer as well as bell peppers, onion and celery on hand. I’ll make up a jambalaya-type casserole to take. As soon as I get through serving, I’m going to meet David and the new employees he’s training this week at a restaurant for dinner.
- broccoli casserole
- glazed carrots
- steamed brown rice
I’m bringing food to a friend who is undergoing chemo. She’s not feeling great right now and prefers no meat. The broccoli casserole is a new-to-me recipe that includes eggs and cottage cheese for protein. Since she’s eating smaller, more frequent meals right now, I figure these items are easily reheated. I’m also going to pick up some organic apples and pears for her to have on hand for snacks.
- David will be out of town so I’ll either eat leftovers or make a salad.
- tuna salad stuffed tomatoes
- corn on the cob
- cheddar biscuits
- banana pudding
- pasta with sweet peppers in a Creole cream sauce
- bread or leftover cheddar biscuits (if there are any!)
So what’s for dinner at your house this week?
