This was yesterday, and brunch rather than dinner, but oh my Flying Spaghetti Monster... 

When someone invites you to a home-cooked traditional Polish Easter meal, GO!

Homemade cheese pirogies, and white borscht.

The soup is a tart-n-tangy blend of sausage broth, vinegar, and sour cream with still-toothsome slices of onion. To serve, you mix crumbled hard-boiled egg, shredded rye bread, sliced kielbasa, and horseradish in your bowl, and pour the soup over.


ETA: Also beet salad, bread, and fancy butter molded in the shape of a lamb.

Why is shaped butter more delicious?

Tonight we are finishing the beautiful 7 bone pork rib roast with smashed sweet potatoes, yellow squash and eggplant.

Last night we went to a meal with friends. I brought a Mediterranean couscous salad with broccoli and chickpeas, and a green salad, both requested by the hostess, who made a roast chicken,  goat cheese quiche, roasted tomatoes, and chipotle baked mashed sweet potatoes, and served challah.

Weirdly, the other 3 (adult!) guests didn't bring anything, nor were they asked to. One decided to share her big bag of jellybeans from her purse as dessert.

Tonight, roasted golden beets with grapefruit glaze and crispy faux-chicken tenders.

I precooked 6 lbs of chicken cutlets earlier and am now making steak with mushrooms and onions to be served with potatoes and green beans.

Last  night, home made small pizzas, one "Thai" with spicy peanut sauce and curried onions, carrots and corn on top, the other with marinara, pureed butternut squash,  and peas. Both vegan.

Tonight, grilled tofu over a salad of arugula, carrot,  mushrooms and onions, plus a homemade spicy mustard dressing.

I visited my parents today and they grilled steaks and sweet potatoes.  I do miss grilled food because it's just not efficient living alone!

Good luck on finals! My new semester starts Monday.

My DH made something that cooked all night and involved a 4 lb side of pork, so we will have that with a bean salad, roasted squash and rice.

Braised chicken breast with kale and either mashed potatoes or couscous. Not a great weeknight meal b/c it takes a while to prep and an hour to cook! But I went home during lunch and did the prep, so all we have to do is stick it in the oven as soon as we walk in the door.  :D
