Brewing beer, curing meat, or making cheese?

Easy Friday night and easy Saturday morning

MIss G Jun 8, 2011 08:12 PM

Please excuse two random subjects in one post.....

What do you do Friday nights as a sastifying meal that doesn't take a lot of effort?
And, I want to take a snack for my rugby team Saturday morning before our game? (or after game)
Any recommendations? Thanks!

    Friday night might include mac and cheese with a grilled sausage on the side and a nice fresh green salad. Saturday morning? It'd have to be very light before a rugby game. Unless there was a couple of hours to finish the snack before the actual engagement. In which case I might serve apple sauce and a muffin. Come to think of it, that'd be alright for an after game snack too, with a nice hot cup of chocolate.

      Spaghetti Carbonara is my go to Friday night dish - super yummy and comfort foody, and takes only as long as the spaghetti takes to cook!

        For Saturday, I recommend David Lebovitz's fruit and nut bars. You can sub any fruit or nut. Lots of good energy for after a game:


        I also like to make Quaker's disappearing oatmeal cookies, but substitute mashed banana for the butter and make them fairly large. They turn out cake-like and make for a cool breakfast bar.
