Lots of ways...here's one:
            DateTime dt = DateTime.Today;
            dt = dt.AddDays(-1);
            while (dt.DayOfWeek == DayOfWeek.Saturday || dt.DayOfWeek == DayOfWeek.Sunday)
            {
                dt = dt.AddDays(-1);
            }

DateTime today = DateTime.Today;
switch (today.DayOfWeek)
{
    case DayOfWeek.Monday:
        return today.AddDays(-3);
    case DayOfWeek.Sunday:
        return today.AddDays(-2);
    default:
        return today.AddDays(-1);
}
