What We Ate on That: 9/21- 9/27

OK, now that you have picked yourselves up off the floor after reading about my beautiful CVS haul this week, I'm going to remind you that I also grocery shopped. And with those groceries, these are the meals I made:

This week we arrived home from a weekend away on Sunday evening. So no Saturday menu. You may notice an abundance of pears on the menu this week. This is because the girls and I visited a relative over the weekend and helped her harvest from her tree. We got pears, pears, pears around here, and they are delicious.

And oh, I usually end my menus on Friday, but I included Saturday just for the hell of it. After all, we didn't buy anything new for Saturday except buns for the sausages. And beverages for the whole week are milk, coffee, carbonated water, tap water, wine and beer.

SUNDAY

dinner: scrambled eggs with cheese and peppers from Dad's garden, sausage and fried potatoes

i was wondering about the kale...
how do you prepare it?

i have a wicked raw salad, but i am always interest in learning how other people use it.

i usually saute kale. or boil AND saute. you eat it raw? seems like it would be pretty tough.
