Lunches & Dinners



Lunches & Dinners

Here is a collection of some our family favorite meals which would normaly be found on our weekly menu. Some recipes are seasonal whereas others we have year round. We have traveled around the world with my husband serving twenty-years in the US Air Force so we have an international menu with lots of variety.

 

I also like to cook foods in bulk for my husband to have meals ready-made for him to take to work. He takes great pride and joy eating my homecooking at work. Often when he is in the break room his co-workers remark about how good the food smells and sometimes even offer to buy his food. Most of them buy pre-packaged foods or food from the vending machines. Jose's meals are the envy of his co-workers. Some dishes freeze well whereas others are best served fresh. I denote which ones can be made up for the freezer.

Calzone

Calzones

I make these filling meals for my husband to take to work. They are great items that can be made up ahead of time and then stored in the freezer.  They are basically pizza in a pocket. They make a great food to go, to be warmed up in a microwave or toaster oven later. If I don't have a lot of people around on a particular Friday night I will make these instead or do half the dough in pizza and the rest in calzones.
