The Last (Week of ) Supper
On Tuesday, May 18th I am having surgery on my ankle. It seems particularly unfair to be bedridden when it's getting to be so beautiful outside. Sadly, it also means this week is the last time I'll be cooking for quite awhile. Don't worry, I'll try to line up some guest bloggers so that things aren't a total ghost town around here, but we're looking at 6-8 weeks off my feet. I will have to give up control (a skill I am still working on).
So for my final week:
Monday: Sausage Sandwiches Nothing too fun or exciting there, just sausages with cheese and onions on good rolls. Needs to be quick because I have to drive to my parents' house after work and then back home and I expect to be very tired.
Vegetarian Monte Cristo and Potato Salad - I've got a doctor's appointment that night, so I'll be home a bit late. Seriously, I spend so much time at the doctor's these days, I want a chair with a little plaque and my name on it.
Calzone Brilliant! The recipe always makes enough for 2 meals, so a set of calzone will join the other premade meals in the freezer.
Thursday: Spaghetti and Meatballs I use the same meatball recipe for the pasta dish as I do for the sandwiches. I'll use some of the meatballs for our spaghetti and tuck the rest in the freezer for sandwiches! Remember how I said I have problems giving up control? Right. I'm just putting away as many meals as I can.
Friday my parents are returning from a long trip to Scotland, so barring any Icelandic volcano activity, I'm hoping to have dinner with them!
Later this week: I'll give you an inventory of all the crazy I've assembled (both fridge and household) to keep things running smoothly when I'm injured. Be prepared.
