    Morning C - Sounds like everything is going good with work. Good for you. Have a great time with your son this weekend. Me, busy busy weekend. Horseback riding today, catering tomorrow; then preparing soup, salad, dessert for the shelter on Sun (we will start at 3am). Then a art show, and lots of Sunday Cooking. Crazy weekend, but then a low key week. I guess it all works out. Travel safe and have a nice weekend.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    SAT ...
    Calzones (with freezer stash chicken, peppers, onions, mozz, served with marinara; salad

    Catering a 4pm Corporate Dinner Party: My friend is having his annual corporate working/vacation at a rental on the beach. Ten of them; casual, and all on the grill
    starting with,
    - Baked Olives; - Toasted crostini w/Artichoke Spread or Sauce; cheese and crackers
    then,
    - grilled romaine with Mustard Vinaigrette
    followed by,
    - Pebre Steak; - Creamy goat cheese mashed potatoes; - Grilled herbed cherry tomatoes, dressed with olive oil, s/p and grilled; then tossed with a light herb vinaigrette; - Easy Cheesy Bread
    finished with; - Easy Strawberry Shortcake

    SUN ...
    3am Soup Cooking w/4 friends - Making soup, salad, rolls, dessert for a local shelter (200 gallons)
    Once again ... it is that time of year. Myself and 4 of my friends are doing our quarterly contribution to one of the local shelters. We will drop it off Sunday morning before lunch. Unless it is a holiday, they usually have enough volunteers for the service. But, we try to stop in at some point to say hi and visit with the staff.
    Soup: Potato w/bacon, ham, beans, and veggies (carrots, onions, celery), no real recipe here. The rolls are poppy seed and plain, donated by a local bakery. The salad, a mix of iceberg, romaine, other greens, onion, tomato, cucumber, carrots, and croutons; with a mustard vinaigrette. Dessert is carrot cake cookies. Two local grocery store also donated several heads of lettuce (from the back) they were going to throw out. Older, and a few brown leaves, etc. Same with the tomatoes and cucumbers. It was all FREE because they can't sell it - it doesn't look pristine. But, tear off a few leaves, and the lettuce is perfectly fine. We made salad for almost 200 people, and only spent $20.00, just by asking. You know ... bruised tomatoes, cucumber with a soft spot, etc. Perfectly good food.
    Rather than donating cash during the holidays; we all work together and do this 4x a year. It is rewarding; but, more so, fun. We spend about 40-50 (each); maybe $200 for the whole year - usually a bit less; and it feeds a good meal to many people who don't have means for a nice dinner. The leftovers if any, they feed on Monday. There is nothing better than a hearty bowl of soup, roll, salad, and dessert!
    Dinner: Cheesy Turkey Broccoli Mushroom Pie; salad

    MON ...
    Lady #4: Family in town, I may cook 1 night, not sure yet.
    Lady #1 and #2: Both have company or family in town most of the week
    Me: Dental surgery this week; so something easy to eat. Asparagus and Orange Salmon Pouches; brown rice; creamy cucumber salad

    TUES ...
    Work - Leftover, calzones from Sat, and salad

    WED ...
    Friend over for dinner - (he is fixing my leaky sink), so I told him I would make dinner. Probably my leftover turkey and broccoli pie; maybe a salad; and dessert (he loves dessert), maybe something with strawberries

    THURS ...
    Maybe a g/f over. I'm helping her plan her bf's birthday party. Reuben sandwiches using corned beef I made last week just for this (freezer stash), served on marbled rye, w/homemade thousand island; chips and a pickle.

    FRI ...
    Ladies #1 and #2: Possibly cooking for them and company, don't know yet
    Me: Pot pie (freezer stash); salad or fresh fruit
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    All my links are from another site this week, sorry.

    Breakfast: Yogurt and cottage cheese or fresh fruit
    Lunch: Soup or leftovers
    And don't forget to clean out the fridge, freezer, and pantry!

    Mickey, that pastry looks fabulous. Last weekend was my crazy one; this time I am happy to be low key. Still way to cold to be spring here. Probably we will wake up one day to summer and I will not have planted a single seed yet in my garden.

    Sat --- I think I will be shopping late in the afternoon so we will use up some odds and ends maybe unified with some tomato sauce and cheese --- minimal effort

    Sun --- Beef Bourguignon with egg noodles

    Mon --- similar to Italian Kale With Turkey Sausage and Penne

    Tue --- Pumpkin-Black Bean Soup with Yeasted Cornbread

    Wed --- Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie) from the freezer with frozen veg

    Thu --- Leftovers from Sun with bread

    Fri --- Crispy Salmon Cakes With Lemon- Caper Mayonnaise with frozen veg and polenta fries with leftovers from Mon

    Charmie, if you have warm weather, send it on over!!!
