Sunday Session

To eat better, we must cook better or at least cook more. We have some great markets here that will supply wonderful fresh meals, but then of course we would be out of budget! One more change we are making in this new year is to cook more. We enjoy working in the kitchen together and it is a natural extension of that to cook up a few dishes on Sundays to help us eat better through the week.

Today"s Sunday session includes.....

Take Along Pork Chops
These will be enjoyed later this week, when cooking does not seem like a great past time.....

Broccoli (or any vegetable) Cheese Soup
For lunches and possible a soup sandwich dinner.

Coconut Almond Granola
One small change on this batch, I doubled the coconut to 2 cups.

Walnut Raisin Snack Cake 
This lovely recipe is (obviously) going to be an adaptation. The flavors sound great, but the sitting overnight does not work for us today.

Braised Meatloaf
This is a perfect recipe for us, only using 1 pound of ground beef. We will have this for dinner, with leftovers for sandwiches.

Roasted Beets - for salads and enjoying this week.
3 blacken on the grill bell peppers - they were a bargain and could not be passed up! Into the freezer they go for future use.
2 onions sliced and grilled - I am thinking pizza, stir into meatloaf, if not used right away, they will freeze nicely.

Whole Wheat Raisin Walnut Bread, will post this one, after we have breakfast tomorrow!

As always, thanks for taking a moment to stop and say hello. We appreciate your time and your wonderful comments!
