Trying to set things up for the first week back with kids, so Steve and I don't end up eating out or eating cereal for dinner every night. I picked out five recipes from my collection of Everyday Foods, September editions only. Hoping very one is a keeper, but it doesn't always work out that way. Still, a meh dinner is still dinner this week. First on the list because of its amount of prep time is the Chicken and Artichoke Stew. It seemed a good one to make as a get ahead dish, especially since it made three quarts! Neither Steve nor I were very hungry last night, partly due to the ferocious humidity around here that has sapped our energy, so this dish was put in the refrigerator for Tuesday night. Done and done. I've also picked out a couple of ten minute prep meals, one being Tortellini with Peas and the other being Mini Spinach and Cheese Pizzas.
Steve and I went to the Virginia Beach Oceanfront Saturday for the American Music Festival, and we saw Southern Culture on the Skids, Soul Asylum, and Cheap Trick. I enjoyed the first group, but Steve was thrilled to see them all.
Apparently, this is Cheap Trick's Dream Police outfit. I'm so out of it, but Steve went up to the front of the stage while I stayed put in the water or sat knitting in the beach chair. Still, it was definitely a fun day.
After lots of yard and house work yesterday, I plan on doing a whole lot of nothing today. Hope you enjoy your Labor Day Monday too!
A long two weeks......
