What’s for Supper? September 4-10


I’m linking up at Simcha Fisher’s Patheos Catholic blog, where she’s got a great weekly “What’s for Supper?” feature going on. Here’s what we had for dinner this week.

I’m curious: do you say “dinner” or “supper?” It was always “supper” growing up–“dinner” was reserved for holidays, when we ate with the extended family, used the dining room and had tablecloths and fancy dishes. But when I went to college, the cafeteria called it “dinner.”

FRIDAY 4: Shrimp Scampi with pasta, which was such a hastily-put-together dinner that I wound up having to call my neighbor for a box of spaghetti.

MONDAY 7: we hosted a Labor Day picnic. I made baked beans, grilled hot dogs, salad and sausage and peppers–a giant batch, in the roaster oven.

TUESDAY 8: Chicken Caesar Sandwiches (we had a lot of leftover rolls after Monday’s picnic, so this was a way to use them up!)

WEDNESDAY 9: Spaghetti and meatballs.

THURSDAY 10: Fend for yourself! Big Brother took me to Center City Philly for my (belated) birthday dinner. We enjoyed Asian food served tapas style at Sampan.
