Eating well and feeding my family that way too has never been so important to me. My daughter-in-law Abigail is a very very nutrition conscious young lady. Especially now that she and my son Christopher are expecting a little girl in early June! And the need to put wholesome and homemade things into my body not only tastes good… it feels good! I don’t get crazy, but I’d much rather make something from scratch than buy it! So here’s a hearty and good for you menu this week…
The latest episode of Decorating Tips And Tricks is about CREATING A BEAUTIFUL GUEST ROOM. Tons of doable ideas in this podcast!

Now, let’s see what’s on the menu this week…
SUNDAY- FAMILY DINNER NIGHT
It’s been awhile since I hosted a Sunday Night Dinner for the family. After my second ankle surgery (UGH and YUCK) I am still in a wheelchair but getting strong enough to start working in the kitchen.
On a side note, the stitches come out of my ankle (for the second time) this week and I’ll begin physical therapy! Oh, I’ll be dancing around in no time!
I’ve made Chicken Eugene for decades. It is very very company worthy and so easy to make for a weeknight meal. It has ham and chicken and a scrumptious sauce! It makes me hungry just thinking about it!
- CHICKEN EUGENE (Look for an upcoming recipe)
- NANI’S SAUTEED RICE
- ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS
Oh yum! Doesn’t this image from ifoodreal look absolutely scrumptious? I love this site for Olean’s clean eating philosophy! Her recipes are scrumptious and she is so informative! Please check her site out!
Oh my goodness! And I mean, goodness! If you try one thing this week, try the Roasted Eggplant Parmesan Casserole. It is just scrumptious and pretty easy to make too! It is definitely company worthy! And no frying eggplant!
I posted this recipe years ago. The recipe is amazing… and I was learning how to photograph food! It’s a very steep learning curve. The photo below was an eary attempt.
We love to grill! And this flank steak recipe is so so easy!!!! We also love a great wedge salad. I can make a single serve wedge salad ahead and everyone loves getting one of their own in a jar! All they do is top it with homemade croutons.
A gorgeous summer soup from Pip and Ebby! And look at the image below. You could just eat the picture below that Megan took!
- CRAB SOUP
We LOVE LOVE LOVE this meatball recipe. My friend shared it with me and there is such a funny story behind it! A must read. She made these meatballs for me when I was still down and out from my last ankle operation. I can’t wait to thaw them and have them for dinner! They are absolutely THE best!
- GRANDMA LO BIANCO’S MEATBALLS WITH PASTA
- GREEK SALAD
- CRUSTY BREAD AND OLIVE AND ROASTED PEPPER DIPPING SAUCE
HOPE YOU HAVE A YUMMY WEEK! What’s on your menu this week?
