It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Menu … Tuesday

This past weekend was a long one here in Canada. I spent it doing exactly what one does with long weekends … a lot of whatever I wanted. It was lovely. Some yard work — a nice long line of packed leaf bags filled with needles. (Has the time come to do something about that dratted pine tree back there?) Some porch-tea-and-book time. (Raymond Chandler’s “The High Window” devoured in two and a half days.) Some wandering around with my sweetie time. Some drinks-on-a-patio-with-friends time. Some chatting with my kids time.

Yup. Just about perfect.

And now it’s Tuesday, and back to work, and all refreshed and ready to go! For food this week, we have planned:

Tuesday:
Peanut butter sandwiches, not so much because I am starting myself off easy, as the spinach-feta torte on a potato crust was a big hit with my family, and they ate all ours, and the daycare’s, too… Oops. (Or is that ‘yay!’? But also, oops.) So a quick switch was required. Easy!
First course: cucumber and green pepper slices
Main course: peanut butter sandwiches
Dessert: homemade applesauce

Wednesday:
First course: roasted veggie pilaf (in quinoa, rather than rice)
Main course: Stuffed green peppers
Dessert: Peaches

Thursday:
First course: chopped salad
Main course: lentil-rice cakes
Dessert: muffins

Friday:
First course: zucchini fritters
Main course: ginger-baked tofu
Dessert: gelato
