    Here’s mine for the week. We still have a ways to go for birthdays. It’s painful right now with Mother’s Day/Father’s Day/Mom birthday/Dad birthday. Thankfully after that there is no more spending money taking people out. At least it’s a three paycheck month so that will help things a bit.

  2. This week is our wedding anniversary. Usually we go out to dinner to celebrate. However, because of some unexpected spending, we will prepare a special meal at home instead. Also, it’s expected to be hot in Sacramento, so I’ve planned mostly cool meals.
    10 Chef salad, grapes, garlic bread (I got a bag of romaine hearts free with an e-coupon, so using them for many meals that call for lettuce)
    11 Anniversary — fillet of sole with almonds, roasted potatoes, ceasar salad, champagne cocktail
    12 Tuna pasta salad, nectarines
    13 Chef salad again
    14 Bean tostadas
    15 Tostadas II (my husband could eat them 29 days out of 30)
    16 Spaghetti squash with marinara and meatballs (from freezer), veggie salad

  3. I really love your recipe for crispy chicken tenders. I’ve made them for guests, and they loved them too. Definitely a winner!

    I love your blog and the recipes in it but the light green and blue print is very difficult for me to read. Am I the only one or is this a common issue

      Thanks for your feedback. Are you reading it in a device or on a computer screen. I’ve heard that some phones display the color differently.

  5. Here’s the plan for the week:

    The rolls are your hot dog bun recipe shaped into rolls, instead of buns. Pretty tasty!!
