Date night . . . I am serving the kiddos Quorn nuggets (they are made out of mushrooms) and the kids love them. I will probably serve it up with some veggies and fruit.

Then I am going to whip a random pasta dish. I am going to cook up pasta (according to package directions) and then add crumbled cooked bacon, chopped parsley, shredded parm, shredded zucchini, a few squirts of fresh lemon and then drizzle it with olive oil.

Asparagus. I like to cook up the asparagus in boiling water for about a minute or two. Then I saute up a little butter, 1 tablespoon or so of soy sauce, add some teriyaki if you have that too. Then add the asparagus to the pan to heat it up and serve.

I know I said I was going to cook with the family every Sunday night. But it's not in the cards for us this Sunday, so we are going out! I think . . . we may have people over. We'll see.
