What’s for Dinner?

Since my youngest son has been home, for the winter break, from college, he’s asked me to make his favorite meals — he misses his mama’s cooking! And, how can I say no, when I know the boy has been living off of oodles of noodles, fast foods, and other not-so-nutritious meals.

I usually make my best meals on Sunday, when I have time and I’m more relaxed. My son verbally gave me a long list of his favorites — no problem! But, that boy can really eat! I mean really eat! Standing tall at well over 6’4, I swear the boy eats every 15 minutes.

Last week I prepared from his list: brown rice, green beans, and turkey patties with peppercorn gravy. From my past experience cooking for a family of six, I knew not to make all the patties at one time. I learned that it’s always best to save a portion of the meal, for the next day.

This week, he chose his absolute favorite: whole wheat spaghetti with turkey meatballs, and, of course, garlic bread. Man, he’s really living the life! It must be nice to have someone else cook all your favorite foods!lol
