Dinner and Snack
Tonight's dinner was by A. He chose to make baked ziti. He would have been content to leave it at that, but was "convinced" that a vegetable was necessary - we ended up with a spinach and mandarin orange salad. A thought that the oranges would be enough. no.
I've been enjoying the partial break from the kitchen this week. I informed the family right before break that each of them needed to cook at least one meal. So far D has made pork steaks and lentils. A made the ziti. M made ravioli and has plans for pizza later in the week (after a planned trip to Trader Joe's to get some of their pizza dough).
In celebration of the lack of dinner cooking and the general cool weather out, I made some pecan apple bread tonight. Yummy. I think it will be even better tomorrow morning, toasted. It was a big hit with everyone except M, who thought it was just ok, but too raisiny. That's odd - no raisins anywhere in it. Evidently he thought the apple bits were raisins.
