I pulled out the book, Gatherings, for this week and I am overdosing on recipes. I found this review of the book, if you would like to know more about it.
I have decided Tuesday is Meat Day. I see that my husband really enjoys meat, on occasion and I love seeing him happy.
Sunday — Large Shells stuffed with Saucy Meat and Zucchini and Tomato Saute
Monday — Tangy Oriental Noodles with Savory Roasted Winter Vegetables
Tuesday —Beef with Cashews with Israeli Couscous Salad
Wednesday —- Cheesy Potato Dish
Thursday — “Nutella” Tartine (Pure indulgence)
Friday — Melt in Your Mouth Salmon with Three Pepper Pasta Salad

I realized this week that I have not come to terms with not having meat at the evening meal. It is not because I want meat. It is because, it is like a meal without a main dish. It is composed of all sides. Realistically, there is nothing wrong with that. It just doesn’t fit like a glove.
As, I am preparing this week’s menus from Paula Deen, that feeling keeps coming over me. It is sort of an empty feeling. This is an emotional reaction, I realize but it bothers me. I am not running to have meat despite this. I do have to get over it.
I received Paula Deen’s magazine and decided to cook from it, right away, so it would not become another magazine, waiting to be used.
