Meal plans are wonderful, but life happens. Here is a review of last week's eats and how it all turned out; some good, some not so good.
On Monday, the eight ears of corn taking up space in my kitchen were evicted and I made fresh corn soup with roasted corn guacamole. The soup was exceptionally spicy, and excellent as usual. Dessert was lemon sorbet.
Tuesday's ground beef tacos did not disappoint. We really love this meal.
Wednesday, Betty Crapper was supposed to make chicken paella; however I felt like pizza instead. I should have stuck with the meal plan. Betty Crapper waved her magic wand and ruined the pizza. I assembled it perfectly, with three cheeses (fresh mozzarella, ricotta, and parmigiano-reggiano). It just wasn't meant to be. As I attempted to transfer the pizza from the peel to the stone, disaster struck. The pizza folded over onto the hot stone. Betty Crapper almost cried and ate it anyway.
On Thursday, Betty Crapper decided to reheat a homemade waffle for dinner. The pizza disaster was too recent too cook. Waffles are great with vanilla ice cream.
Friday afternoon I made banana bread with bananas far past their prime. The baking loaves smelled so good, I ate half a loaf for dinner.
The chicken paella finally got made on Saturday. It was delicious both Saturday and Sunday. Look for an upcoming chicken paella post. Spaghetti and focaccia will wait until Monday.

I reserve the right to make substitutions and deletions due to laziness.
