Friday Food Round-Up!

I spoke too soon about the nausea.  I felt much better and then I took a dive again.  Part of the week, I could eat.  The other part, I could not.  But here is a lot of pretty food that graced the table.  We continue to be so blessed that we don’t have to cook constantly.  Honestly.

Friday – Balsamic-Ginger Salmon with Veggie Fried Rice, Asparagus, Challah


This meal was actually prepared by my mother-in-law as Shabbat was at their house!  This is Marcus’ plate.  Friday kicked off my weekend of profound nausea and all I could stomach (albeit painfully) was rice and bread.

Monday – Olive Chicken with Baked Potatoes and Salad


Obviously, I forgot to take a picture, so Marcus took one of his leftovers for me instead.  You’ll just have to imagine the salad.

Tuesday – Spaghetti with Meatballs, Salad, Garlic Bread


Apparently this is a thing we eat now.  I will also confess an unabashed love of powder parmesan cheese.

Wednesday – Steak, Roasted Potatoes, Arugula-Pasta Salad


Things that are true: I ate an entire pound of steak at dinner before I knew I had done it and it was the best thing I ate all week.  Apparently I needed that.  The salad is my mother’s latest variation on Chrissy Teigen’s Cauliflower-Orzo salad.

Thursday – Ribs, Potato Salad, Coleslaw, Baked Beans


It took us nearly a month to get ribs on the table but we did and it was perfection!  I made the coleslaw.
