What We Ate


We made BBQ chicken naan pizzas, to use up the leftover smoked chicken I made on my grill.


Lisey’s birthday! She wanted to get wings from a local place, so that’s what we did. 🙂

I made sloppy joes (here’s the recipe I use) and we had some fresh produce on the side.

Sloppy joe sandwich with veggies on the side.


Beef ravioli…and I tried topping mine with pesto but I found it to be sort of a weird combination. I like pesto on cheese ravioli but something about the beef wasn’t right!


Leftovers from Monday and Tuesday. 🙂


I picked up a rotisserie chicken at Sam’s Club and we made chicken sandwiches on croissants. We just had some fresh fruit on the side.

But I did have plenty of greens with my breakfast:

fried eggs on greens.


I think Zoe and I are gonna make some enchiladas together, using some of the rotisserie chicken from yesterday.

What did you have for dinner this week?

@Trucchi’s $26 Monday when I picked up items to make the Greek dinner. $36 went to get rolls for meatball sandwiches and then picked up some other meal additions. I saw an interesting tuna melt recipe on cook’s that I will be trying this weekend. A lot of meat this week was in our most recent meatbox. Friday I had crab patties and husband had tuna patties Saturday Chicken sausage and elbows with “Papa” sauce (my daughter’s father-in-law makes spaghetti sauce at the end of tomato season. Sunday Waffles and bacon Monday Greek meatballs with spring risotto Tuesday: Leftovers after work Wednesday I had French meat pie and husband had chicken pot pie Thursday Meatball sandwiches and green salad Friday Clam chowder I didn’t post last week but we got take out one day last week as a fundraiser for my grandchildren’s school. Two take out fish&chip dinners cost $40+ (including the restaurant charge for take out. I guess it is still less expensive than eating in with tip and drink.) We eat out so rarely lately.

We did very little shopping this week--just a few vegetables and some fish, which was kind of nice; a good chance to lean on the pantry. Also, cucumbers are cheaper and we keep buying them which means that we had something like five cucumbers to get through!

Monday: Soy/ginger tilapia, rice, and cucumber salad.

Tuesday: I think we had eggs with herbs? Probably some vegetable? Unsure.

Wednesday: My mom was over and we had lentil soup (my copy of the one they serve at Aroma,) cucumber and snow pea salad, scrambled eggs. A friend brought over an apple sharlotka for dessert and tea. So nice!

Thursday: Mr. B made pasta with tomato sauce; I also finished off the salad from the day before.

Friday: Mr. B is making salmon, rice, and a roasted vegetable. I'll make miso soup.
