Friday Koffee Klatch
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
Daily Question:
I was trying to decide what to cook for supper and which meat to defrost. I decided on pot roast. When my Oldest little Bumblebee says, "Pot roast again?".  Which brings me to todays question....
Do you have "recurring meals"? Meal choice that you cook each week? Pot roast or baked chicken for example??

We have baked rosemary chicken, and spaghetti every week. Today I am spicing things up a bit with a pork roast seasoned with rosemary, coriander, thyme and sage, with potates, carrots, peas, onions, mushrooms and yams. Sometimes I place an apple in the pot and let it sweeten things up a bit.

We're having steak, but spicing it up by making it in to a Mexican dish and served in toasted flour tortilla bowls. Wish me luck, I've never made it this way before....sounds good anyway.
rolleyes  Duh...I didn't read the question very well.  I'm too sorry to cook a lot, so we end up with the old standby of take out. smilewinkgrin

cooking is a big thing in my house and we all get involved. My hubby and I were both cooks professionally for a long time so we are always trying something new or inviting friends over for dinner. I have a daycare so we get the kiddos involved as much as we can as well, in fact we make sure to do an edible art activity once a week. But the week would not be complete without some kind of pasta being served. I have went gluten free a few years ago but my hubby always makes sure I have my special noodles! another of our dinner favorites is pizza and my husband used to drive me 45min's away to the only pizza shop that i could go to, now we have one in town and make sure to go every other month.

Nachos with loads of cheese. Can't forget the sour cream to go with them. Lee

  Some of the "recurring weekly meals" in our house hold: 

    Wednesdays ~ Pasta Dish (spaghetti, lasagna, et al)

    Thursdays ~ Large Soup & bread (Creamed green chili soup and corn bread or Split Pea soup and sweet rolls, et al)

     Fridays ~ Family "build your own" fajitas, tacos, burritos (left overs are lunch for weekend)

   Saturday mornings ~ Husband gets doughnuts and mommy gets to sleep in!

     Sunday ~ Left over soup from Thursdays and Salad (that night I have to make entire weeks sandwiches/lunches)

     "Week Day Breakfast Buffet" only changes slightly depending on season IE different fruits / breads

    You get the idea. I guess it just doesn't leave room for many "different things". I try to do something different a few times a week. Or get feed back from the family. Stir fry, pot roast, ham, baked chicken, pork loin, enchiladas... you get the idea. There is only a few days to add in "different" meals and those "different meals" depend on the season.
