Sneak Peak at Next Week

Well, I am back to work next week, starting Wednesday.  It was hard to remember how to find some quicker recipes to make!  But, I managed.  Here's what we're having:

-- Salad with Potatoes, Green Beans, and Corn in my Buttermilk Dill Dressing
-- Sesame Chicken with Spicy Dipping Sauce
-- Corn Cakes with Chives, Caramelized Onions, and Feta Cheese
-- Huevos Rancheros
-- Louisiana Catfish with Okra and Corn, served wtih Cornbread

We'll be having lots of side salads this week, due to my big win.  Yes, my big win!  I won a bunch of coupons for Olivia's Organics salads from the lovely Megan over at Delicious Dishings, one of my favorite Boston-area food blogs.  This represents the first time I have won something since I was six and won Chipper the goldfish at the Forest Park Elementary School fair (Chipper was a good fish who lived a long time and who I still miss).  I cannot tell you the excitement these salad coupons have created!  Usually those Olivia's Organics salads are things that I stare at sadly and longingly, and then walk by, since they are a little out of our usual budget.  But not now!  It is great to be able to start off the school year with quick, healthy options ready to go in the fridge.  My mother-in-law LOVES those salads, and she always saves the containers for me to use in my classroom.  Now I will start the school year off with a double stock!  They are great for storage, for art projects, and for planting things in!  Word on the street is that my mom-in-law is a little jealous of all the salad coupons...perhaps I should invite her over for a good salad dinner! 

Hope you all have a great weekend.  What are you doing?  We are going to a Red Sox game tonight!
