Sorry, being a Norwegian it's not Tuesday but Friday for tacos. Any day is a good day for tacos.

Monday is also red beans & rice day in New Orleans.

Of course, fish on Fridays, especially (but not exclusively) during lent. Around here there’s usually at least one fish fry in every community and it’s a common Friday special in restaurants. Mm, fish fry.

Well, if it has to rhyme, how about Wegetarian Wednesday?

Either vegetarian things, or things served in wedges, or (for bonus points) both. Like quiche!

(Edit: It's alliteration, not rhyme. Took me a minute to retrieve it from my old hard-head drive. )

It's not a thing (at least to my awareness), but perhaps it could be...wild harvested Wednesday!

Wild Wednesday! I like it!

Roasted red squirrel marinated in ...? They should have a natural sunflower flavour already, given the amount they purloin from our feeders. Paired with wild rice and a lusty Bordeaux?

The only thing that we typically have once a week or at least used to when our lives were hectic was spaghetti. I've always made spaghetti sauce in large batches, freezed it prior to owning a pressure canner. I will not eat commercial spaghetti sauce. I'd rather just have it with butter and cheese. While I love alliteration in my life, we typically had it on Tuesday because I had therapy. Taco Tuesday was a big thing at restaurants where I used to live, my kids would go there at lunch or after school when in high school. Tacos were a dollar. They really liked the lengua tacos.

I see Meatless Monday frequently on meal planning sites.

For the fun of it, how about Fried Friday. Donuts, onion rings or French fries, fried chicken and fried okra.

Alliteration aside, Pizza Friday seems popular, and we have Pasta Wednesday in my home.

When i was a kid in one place we lived everyone ate tacos on tuesday, spaghetti and meatballs on Wednesday, fish on Friday. We did not, and it was like anthropology.

today in my house it's more like:
Monday "I have some energy make something that will yield leftovers for lunch" day
Tuesday "husband plays football, popcorn for dinner" day
Wednesday "physical therapy all afternoon, dinner from the grill or the crockpot" day
Thursday "finally a normal dinner" day
Friday "this week was brutal and i'm going out" day

Saturday: leftovers
Sunday: pandemic cooking festival, also baking bread

Pizza Fridays. We've been doing pizza on fridays pretty much our entire marriage and our kids will cry if we have to go to a birthday party or anything else on Friday evenings. That's our time, with pizza. Home made pizza. Sourdough crust. It's bomb.

Culinary art is too vast to be relegated to 7 meals [or 14 if you don't serve the same thing at lunch and supper].
A friend of mine, in France had potato soup every Monday. In Cornwall, my host family had Cornish meat pie every Tuesday. [It was a tradition for miners: they would go down in the mine and eat this meat, potato and other veggies in a very tough crust [It had to be resistant to shock, going down the mine shaft and nothing could crack that sucker!]. I never had the heart to tell her I hated it.
The whole town reeked of it. Mom never had specific days for specific meals, and I don't either. Fish on Fridays [They have terrific fish fries in Central Wisconsin]. We often have more fish on Wednesdays. or shrimp. I try to simplify a lot of my meals nowadays. With age, I just don't have the same appetite. Same thing with hubby. He used to put away half of a big pizza. Now, 2 slices of a smaller one is all he wants.

Looks scrumptious!! I do like the idea of those little buns. Are they baked in muffin tins? What are the others & do you have any recipes to share? Must be a bread making forum here somewhere!

The only food or drink we have on a particular day is a pot of delicious home made masala chai on Saturdays first thing in the morning and this time of year we drink it while sitting in our rocking chairs in front of the wood stove, with several small dogs on our laps. Chai Saturday? No, doesn't have that ring............

Growing up I can’t remember any rhyme or reason to the meals we had. Raising two children we have fallen into meal patterns. We have taco Tuesday every week but we have it on Wednesday! Most Mondays my husband and I have composed salads and I cook some kind of animal protein for our teenage son.  On Fridays we always have seafood and challah for shabbat. My husband cooks that meal. Every Saturday morning we have pancakes or waffles. Every Sunday night we have some kind of pasta for dinner.  The rest of the days of the week what I cook depends on what vegetables look good and whether the hens are laying. I do have a set of vegetarian recipes in high rotation. I usually make a legume main dish each week - lentils, dal, etc.  I try to make a chicken dish once a week for my son. My husband will not eat any creatures except for ocean dwellers or freshwater fish.

During the pandemic’s early days we planned the shopping weekly around a set weekly meal. That made a huge difference in ease of planning and less wasted food. Now we are back to chaos and much more frequent trips to the store. Luckily, it’s an easy and pleasant walk to the store.

I love the idea of having specific meals on specific days!  The consistency appeals to me!  We never did.  Lol.  Even now, we get tired of the same foods over and over.  Some favs we have a couple time a month are spaghetti, chicken and dumplings, tacos, enchiladas and pizza.

Make it up Monday
Taco Tuesday
Wild Edibles Wednesday
Takeout Thursday
Foraged Friday
Spaghetti Saturday
Stew Sunday

To Jim Webb & All -

Yes, the little loaves are baked in giant muffin tins, not the regular size muffin tins. I make balls of dough, pretty much any yeast bread dough will work, as long you can knead it and shape it, and place three of them in each muffin tin. One secret of success is to use silicone muffin tin liners. They are so easy to wash and dry, and most of the time I just wipe out the metal muffin tin because it's not sticky or messy at all.  Of course you can use paper liners instead. Let the balls of dough raise again in the muffin tins before baking.

Looking through my recipes, I came up with this quick bread (meaning use of baking powder, not yeast)  because it's pumpkin season now and it's such a welcome change from the usual pumpkin bread made with canned pumpkin. This Rustic Pumpkin Bread starts by baking a whole small pie pumpkin in the crockpot for a few hours on high, or baking in the oven for about an hour. Let cool, scoop out seeds, and then scoop pumpkin into freezer containers, except for 3/4 cup of pumpkin required for this recipe. As you see in the photo posted above, I often double this recipe and make two loaves.

One other tip - rather than butter or margarine or regular cooking oil I always use high quality olive oil in this recipe. Go ahead and use your personal favorite, but the olive oil really makes this bread cake-like and special.

Mia's Rustic Pumpkin Bread

1 2/3 cups all purpose flour (or half and half with whole wheat flour)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cooked pumpkin
chopped nuts if desired

Combine dry ingredients and set aside. Cream with mixer or beat by hand oil, sugars and eggs. Add pumpkin and beat until smooth. Stir in dry ingredients and spoon into muffin tins or 9x5 loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees F at least half an hour for muffin tins or 50 - 60 minutes for loaf of bread. Try not to eat it all in one sitting!
