You're favorite Once a Week Meal

To make a long story short, growing up we had a summer home. Now during the winter every weekend we drove up there (nothern MI, from Detroit, 4 hr+ drive) so Friday dinner once we got there was tuna fish, grilled cheese, canned soup, and no time. Late Sun we would head home so usually leftovers we froze. However my Mom was a teacher so summers were free. Every week during the summer we had special nights. It was fun ... Friday was always a fish night. Fried bass or perch, potatoes on the grill, coleslaw and anything else that people brought if friends stopped over Another was always soup and salad and another usually something with the deer we killed that winter or pheasant or rabbit. But it was great because I really learned to eat alot of different foods growing up.

Monday, Soupp, Sandwish and Salad; Wed, usually something from the freezer ... Venison, Pheasant, or Rabbit, most likely stewed but always good; Friday, Fish Fry; Pizza night, usually thrown in whenever

We never held to it that much but it just became a tradition and it was fun. Never the same but a great handed down tradition.
