My day (the whole weekend really) has been a blur so far. I'm wiped and I'm still supposed to deal with a yoga class. I don't think that is going to happen. Dinner is going to be some form of chicken breast. If I get a nap I might get creative. Wish me luck!

Beef stew - bottom round roast cubed and dredged in seasoned flour (salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, rosemary and cayenne pepper) and browned. Then simmered in beef stock, burgundy wine, gravy master, sautéed mushrooms and onions. Peas, potatoes and carrots added at the end. Steamed broccoli. Cheese biscuits (shredded 4 cheese blend added to the dough) brushed with melted herb butter (the same herbs as added to the dredge flour) before baking.

Alix, I am also feeling very uninspired about what to have for dinner. I had sausage and egg on an English muffin for breakfast. But, so far I have not come up with a thing to have for dinner. Good luck!

Thanks SC! We decided on a low prep meal. We're doing parmesan chicken, wild rice blend and a caesar salad. With luck, there will be leftover chicken and tomorrow's lunches will feature wraps.

That sounds wonderful, Alix. I am thinking about making a pasta salad with broccoli, olives, kidney beans, bell pepper, onion, and an Italian vinaigrette. That is something light and easy.

Pasta salad sounds yummy but like too much work for me! Supper is smelling lovely and will likely be done in about 20 minutes. Bon appetit all.
