Monday: Tagliatelle with peas and creamy saffron sauce, cooked carrots

 (Sounds fancy, and I suppose it is in a way, but I literally had not figured out what to cook for dinner until an hour before. Mix a little noodle dough and roll it out, put a few saffron threads in some hot cream, simmer it all. Yay. Plus I've had that saffron for years and never use it. I'm not even sure it actually tastes like anything, but for the price I'd better pretend that it does!)

Tuesday: Bean soup, simple side salad, bread
Wednesday: Vegetable pot pie
Thursday: Chicken stir fry
Friday: Niçoise salad, popcorn
Saturday: Pizza and mixed vegetables, both straight from the packages in the freezer
(We'll be coming back, hungry, from my daughter's choir concert an hour away)
Sunday: The usual pancakes

  1. Is your recipe for noodle dough posted somewhere? Also, how do you cut the noodles with those lovely edges? P.S.My Italian sister-in-law gave me some ground saffron from Italy and it definitely had a taste - delicate but distinctive. Maybe yours is too old now. . . . :(
