Wed: Shepard's Pie
Sat: Meatloaf (non-chuncky)
Think the kid likes beef? Notice mashed potatoes are included at least once. I make mashed potatoes by request at least every 5 days, I swear. It's a big joke around here that everyone is in a terminal state of mashed potato deprivation. Non-chunky meatloaf refers to the sans peppers and onions variety (which are usually picked to the side by the author of the list.)
I, on the other hand, need a little protein variety in my diet. Tuesday is always a busy night in our house, so it's often soup night. Last night's selection was chicken. I thought I'd share.
I love homemade soup. The beginnings of this one look pretty stark, but there's something about a simple little chicken floating around with celery and onion that is homey to me.
Nothing fancy about this soup at all, I made it the old fashioned way. I simmered the chicken, then removed it to cool. I did add more canned broth, then potatoes, carrots, more celery and peas. some thyme and sage, salt and pepper, too.
I thickened it with a bit of corn starch to add some body to the broth.
Honey cornbread as a side and dinner was done.
And what a great lunch on this cold spring day!
