Mondays...blah! What's for dinner to start the week? 09/23

I've got the Mondays. I'm on days off, but the weather is windy and overcast. It looks like it might rain.

I've got everyone at home for dinner so I want to make something we will all enjoy, but I'm struggling with inertia. My butt does not want to leave the couch.

I've got some tomatoes in roasting with onions and garlic. I'll probably do something with that for dinner. I've also got a zucchini and about 25lbs of carrots. YIKES. Maybe stuffed zucchini?

How are you combating the Mondays?

Cold and gloomy here also!

Roast beast hash with a couple of eggs on top and a sliced tomato.

I'm off to a condo board meeting tonight so I'll be eating some leftover pork tenderloin and roasted potatoes for a quick dinner. SO is on her own.

Making a recipe I got from my cousin who has her own Italian restaurant. We'll be having pork loin medallions in sage cream sauce (her recipe), lemon-butter broccoli, stuffed mushrooms, iced tea and zucchini cake/bread for dessert.

I've got some Brussels sprouts to use up yet, so I'll probably grill a steak to go along with them.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

Left over BBQ-ish pot roast on sweet rolls. More marinated veggie salad. Blah, indeed.
