Menu Plan for the Week

As you've probably guessed from my last post, we're in mourning here at Casa Dena. I thought about not mentioning it here on this blog at all -- what does it have to do with food, after all -- but I realized while it may not be about food, it is about me.

We had to put our beloved dog, Sailor, to sleep last Tuesday, and we've been basically sitting shiva since then, even though there have been some very joyous and momentous occasions that have occurred as well. We're doing our best to hold the joy and the sorrow together, which is hard, but also really important. And it's also very important to eat well and maintain routine in times of grief, and it feels very important to me to cook right now -- to eat healthy, home-cooked meals.

So here's what we're eating around these parts this week:


  1. So sorry for your loss, Dena! Have courage and keep cooking (it helps, doesn't it?). Very best wishes.

  2. Thanks so much, Elizabeth. It *does* help. So do words of support from my blog community!
