I'm not a patient in the chemotherapy ward.
I've never even BEEN in a burn unit.
My legs are not broken.
Today I went to:
A little "dirty" blood is no big deal.
What caused the turn-around?
Something as simple as a phone call from a friend.

This is how the meals stacked up this week:
Monday ~ leftovers
Tuesday ~ leftovers
Wednesday ~ Crustless quiche, turkey sausage, hashbrowns
Thursday ~ Pork chops Marsala, long grain & wild rice, asparagus for Mike. Football night for Karen and the kids - McDonald's.
Friday ~ DiGiorno Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza, salad
Didn't turn out too badly with no plans in mind and most of the leftovers got eaten.

Throw the whole thing in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes until the cheese on top turns a lovely brown color then feed the family. Everyone liked this dish! Ana even ate it and said it was good after she wouldn't eat the original Chile Colorado this weekend.
What's that? What size pan? Whatever! Depends on how much stuff you have. Look at it and figure it out. It's not rocket science. It's cooking!
Mike is home from work (before noon) because he went in at 1:30am
Ana is home from school (before noon) because she is sick.

Monday - Tilapia Piccata, Seared Scallops, Orzo with tomatoes & parsley
Tuesday - Red Chile Enchiladas (made with Mike's leftover Red Chile Pork)
Wednesday - Salmon Cakes
Thursday - Football night again - Maybe Applebee's
Friday - Roasted chicken and Gratin Dauphinois (for you English speakers - thinly sliced Yukon Gold potatoes with grated Gruyere (swiss) cheese baked until crunchy)

I suspect Sam based on what I found in my camera yesterday...
Pretty sure I recognize that billboard outside his school on the I-215.
That's his teacher. I've seen that Sun Dial before.

Feeling uninspired this week, but here it is so far...
Monday - Ziti, meatballs, and salad
Tuesday - Meatloaf, baked potatoes (Ana will be out - she hates meatloaf!)
Wednesday - Poached fish (whatever looks good at the store) and scallops in tomato broth
Thursday - Football game! Ana's boyfriend's school is playing against Ana's school. Food.... ?
Friday - Turkey burgers
That will keep most of the family members happy.
I've now returned from grocery shopping and based on my findings, revisions must be made!
- ziti only comes in organic (read: expensive) and I don't love my family that much
- the only fish on sale was salmon ($3.99/lb) and it doesn't taste good in tomato broth
- Albertson's doesn't carry "meatloaf mix" so I had to make my own and now have enough for two meat loaves so watch for it again in the near future
- turkey burgers not on sale - switch to Plan B
Monday - Baked ravioli casserole (don't ask - I'm making it up as I go)
Tuesday - Salmon
Wednesday - Meatloaf
Thursday - still going to the football game
Friday - Plan B *see above. I won't know what Plan B is until Friday afternoon.
