Monday Menus

Monday: Pan-fried potatoes, corn
Tuesday: Tuna-rice casserole, green beans
Wednesday: Pasta with pesto, savory squash
Thursday (Christmas Eve): Shepherd's pottage
Friday (Christmas Day!): Sausage and pannetone for breakfast;
Ham, salad, roasted Brussels sprouts, salt-boiled potatoes and rich tomato soup for dinner;
Risalamande as dessert
Saturday: Chef's salad
Sunday: Pancakes, etc.

On a humorous note, I recently read an article (here) bemoaning the fact that our modern gourmet expectations are rarely compatible with actual available home cooking time. In particular, I loved this statement: 
"Before [promises of ease in the kitchen took hold in the 1940s and 50s], books about cooking largely admitted what every homemaker knew to be true: that feeding people was backbreaking work, and then you died."

Merry Christmas and happy cooking!
