Hi, friends! I would like to start with an apology to any of you who visited my site on Thursday of this week. Something very unexpected happened that caused my recipes to not display properly for over 12 hours. (Thank you to Danila for saving the day.) I’m very sorry for the inconvenience, but now I’m back to normal!

Have you ever broken a mirror? I cracked a hand mirror a couple months ago, and I joked about seven years of bad luck. I’m not really superstitious, but now every time something bad happens, I think, “I shouldn’t have broken that mirror!” Yesterday’s website problems never should have happened. It was like a bunch of mistakes adding up to a worst case scenario. The only explanation is that it was the broken mirror’s fault.

I have realized over the past week that our freezer doesn’t seem as cold as it should. With some investigation tonight, we’re now sure that the freezer AND refrigerator aren’t cooling properly. Now I think I’ll have to waste a bunch of food and hire a repairman. See? I shouldn’t have broken that mirror! Hopefully I’m just having a couple days of bad luck and this isn’t the start of my seven-year term.

I don’t have all bad news for you. I also have some tasty new recipes! Check out my featured recipes for this week, and then read on to see my full recommended meal plan including seven easy dinners and a couple extras thrown in for breakfast and dessert. I hope you like them all!
