Sad Reality: Saturday after shopping, we put away groceries and left to spend time with out-of-town relatives visiting. Someone left the fridge door ajar.  We returned roughly 6 hours later to find everything in the door ruined, as well as much of the interior of the fridge.  What was lost in my menu above was: hummus, cheese, string cheese, salad dressings and lots and lots of previous weeks’ purchases.  So, I am currently trying to make-do with what is left.
