Monday Listicles

Here we go again. Monday fun day.

I just completed back to school shopping. For my son, not me. Although I was tempted to buy myself a new backpack since I would actually be the one going BACK to school. Then I realized that dropping your kid off doesn’t count as going to school and further more does not require a backpack. So I kept it in my shopping cart just in case. That’s right, I did not actually leave my house during this incredibly exhausting shopping ordeal. Does anyone still do that?!? Cause that’s why Amazon was invented you know…

Anyhow, all is well that ends well and this week my husband ( who also the official sponsor of the above mentioned shopping spree ) decided we should write a list about food. I rewarded him with the opportunity to write his own and have it published while I shoe shop. So this list is entirely brought to you by my spousal unit.

Next week 10 ‘OH NO YOU DIDN’T’ MOMENTS. Let’s make each other laugh!

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!



1. Home made pasta sauce (it’s the sauce that makes the pasta)

2. Grilled pork chops with mashed potatoes

3. Colombian chicken potato soup

4. Home made lasagna (extra bonus… Reheated for lunch the next day)

5. Pizza from our local Italian restaurant

6. Poached eggs with toasted muffins and caramelized Pancetta

7. A Sunday Roast with roasted vegetables and Yorkshire pudding

8. Ravioli with Brussels sprouts and bacon

9. Grilled Salmon with brown rice and steamed vegetables

10. Paella

Zero (before the #1) Brinner (breakfast at dinner time)!

    Oh yeah, I love homemade pasta, homemade pasta sauce, and homemade meatballs! Yum! I also shared pizza from a local restaurant on my list too. Now, I am really hungry!

    Yum! I don’t see anything on that list that I don’t like (and brinner rocks!). I actually put maple syrup on my Yorkshire pudding. Totally not right, but it’s delicious. :)

    Brinner is a highly popular meal around here! And it sounds like the husband really likes Italian food. But Stasha, I still want to know what your favorite meal is!

    Yum. This made me so hungry.
    I do so much more cooking in the fall/winter because it is so much more fun to be around a hot stove than when it is 80 degrees.. Right now my favorite dinner is cold fried chicken from the deli with some grape tomatoes and corn on the cob.

    These are some fantastic meals… love them all, especially breakfast for dinner which I may do one night this week as a little treat before the kids head back to school.
    We looked into doing our school supply shopping online but decided against it after doing a little price comparison and unfortunately, Amazon’s prices were quite high.

    What a great topic – thanks for hosting!

    Have to agree with pizza from the local shop – always good. And a Sunday roast is one of my all-time favorites.

    My list is almost entirely pasta so I certainly love a couple items on yours – though yours has much more variety than mine :) What’s your pasta sauce like? You’re right that the sauce makes the pasta.

    Okay Stasha,
    Now I need your Colombian chicken potato soup recipe. Seriously need!!

    I just returned (last night after a 16 hr drive) from Coastal Oregon. Even though we had epic weather, this soup would have been perfect for our stay. We’ll try it during our fall (if you could call it that) down here.

    So…spill it! 😉
