What We Ate, May 14 - 20

I'm late with this post.  The long weekend has managed to confuse me completely!  I do apologize for the delay in sharing this.

We stayed pretty close to home last week and made some progress with the planning ahead and making ahead adaptations required of a work week kitchen.  My husband pitched in to help with the prep and even cooked a couple of the meals entirely by himself, which was a great help to me.

I'm not managing my schedule well enough to get to the grocery store much, which may be a blessing in disguise.  It's certainly good incentive to make the best possible use of what we do have on hand! 

Among my purchases when I did get to the grocery store was a large bag of broccoli from the manager's special cart.  It needed to be cooked right away to prevent it from spoiling so I steamed it and it found it's way into several of our meals.

Here's what we ate last week:
