Something beefy to elevate your Tuesday: We like the economy, flavor, and tenderness of chuck steak, but sirloin or any other boneless steak, pounded thin, is excellent, too.

WEDNESDAY: Bacon Macaroni and Cheese

We consider this a deluxe version of everyone's favorite baked pasta -- because bacon makes everything better! And because it has Gouda for sheer cheesiness, Gruyere for sophistication, and Parmesan, well, just because.... This one-pot wonder has wide appeal. It's bound to be gobbled up by everyone from the youngest to the oldest at your table.

Just the thing for the end of the work week: Our Oktoberfest take on the burger features sweet Italian sausage and mushrooms in a patty. Dress the ciabatta roll with mayo, add a patty, some Provolone, and that all important broccoli rabe.

Go quiche: It's eggy and cheesy, and the addition of spinach takes it into the realm of health food -- well, not quite, but this deep-dish quiche (more filling!) is sheer genius. Comfort food in a pastry shell.
