Is the start of camp a national holiday?

This week, lots of families we know are packing their kids off to sleep-away camp. My kids have no interest and I am grateful. But I do love the little half-day mini camp so I can shop and go to the dentist and other things they kids hate to do with me. So I am welcoming camp cheerfully and with an empty refrigerator.

Alas, the younger boy has a summer flu, particularly painful because right at this very moment, I should be heading to New York to see Alan Cumming's one man show of Macbeth. And I am not. My husband is. Happy anniversary honey. I am seriously bummed out but I know he'll get more out of it than I would, and I loathe going to New York so he wins. Sigh.

So, here we are.

Sunday: leftovers, noodles for sick boy

Monday: salmon with dill creme fraiche (probably with sour cream but I have all this awesome dill), rice, asparagus (it's our 18th anniversary, and since I am missing our celebration I might as well at least make a celebratory dinner, right?)

Tuesday: taco Tuesday

Wednesday: it's spaghetti Wednesday but it will be pretty hot, so I'm thinking about the Giada orzo salad on the sidebar, or possibly the broccoli pesto orzo.

Thursday: leftovers

Friday: town picnic! I will probably make the corn-tomato pie again as it is usually a hit (and why not?!) and I have all this yummy dill.

And that's the week to come. Hope your week looks however it is you like your summer to be. Have a great week!

Aww, poor your boy. Poor you!! So sorry you've missed your outing. Hope he's better soon and it spreads no further. It's always awful to be sick in the summer. The Giada orzo sounds good, Barefoot Contessa also makes an awesome one--
