Menu: Jan 31-Feb 6

Writing Feb 6 might seem so ordinary to some people, but not for me. My youngest brother would have turned 22 yesterday. He passed away in 1999, a short 12 days after he turned 10. He died of pneumonia (due to health problems, he had pneumonia about 5 times per year.) It is hard to believe it has been 12 years...
This is the wreath I made to put next to his grave. There was a piece in the center that said something about sunshine. We all miss him, but are happy he doesn't have to suffer anymore. I'm sure we all have dates that as we write they bring memories to the forefront of our minds.

On to our menu: 

Monday: Broccoli, Cheddar Soup

Tuesday: Leftover soup

Wednesday: Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwiches*
Thursday: Chicken with orange rice and Almond Orange Broccoli (The rice is not pictured due to my rice cooker dying... basically it burned the bottom but didn't cook all the rice.)

Friday: Baked Potatoes with Broccoli & Cheese

Saturday: Spinach Pancakes with Fresh Salsa
Sunday: Veggie Lasagna

Vote for which recipe you want to see next Thursday! Spinach Chicken Alfredo Pizza won this weeks recipe slot and will be posted on Thursday.

*No recipe for this one, as it was just a simple grilled ham and cheese sandwich... However, I must say that in order to make a good one, do the following:
Slice of bread
Cheese slices (cover bread)
Slices of Deli Ham
Cheese slices (cover ham)
Slice of bread
Another trick is cooking them on medium-low so the cheese gets all melted and gooey before the bread turns black. I really like these, they are a great comfort food.
