Wednesday is dinner for 2 as the boys have dinner with Dad. DD and I are having beef burgers on toast, l/o scallopped potatoes, fzn sugar snap peas
I had about 1/3 of a lb of the beef leftover, so I made a quick soup: the 1/2 of an onion from the fridge, 2 carrots, the rest of the celery sticks from the holidays, 2 more branches of celery, 1 pint home canned tomatoes, 1 qt low salt beef broth (Dollar Tree), black pepper, 1 bay leaf, some dried Italian herbs, the rest of the pok choy, about 8 long in the tooth mushrooms,1 cup quinoa elbow macaroni. Smells good! It'll most likely be for lunches this week
