Menu 9 – Week of Feb. 27, 2011 – Notes & Recap
Sunday Roast – One last batch of Clam Chowder seemed in order as winter is starting to bid its final farewell. For dessert: my Heart made a lovely lemon & blackberry pudding. There were five of of us and just one serving leftover.
Monday – Tilapia Piccata with rice & spinach turned out quite nice. Next time – more sauce but it was delicious. We had two substantial servings and one serving leftover.
Tuesday – Finally made the Chicken Casserole with mashed potatoes. It was very good – next time, my Heart suggested using sherry instead of water for the sauce mix. We had two hearty servings and one good sized lunch leftover.
Wednesday – The usual late night meeting. Came home to delicious nachos from my Heart and the what a great surprise: eggs on top! YUM!!
Thursday – The plan was for Asian pork & broccoli but we ended up traveling down to American University for a Social Media workshop. We had nachos & quesadillas in the student union – not bad!
Friday – Phi Beta Lambda hosts the Rock the Cradle concert for the March of Dimes event every year. I hung out for the first band and to watch the SU step squad… swung through takeaway Chinese for dinner.
Saturday – My Heart was skiing and I’m was at the Shopping Extravaganza – Even though it was a very long day, I felt like cooking so we had my second try at beef stroganoff which was a definite success. Two substantial servings and one serving for lunch later.
Menu 10 – Week of March 6, 2011
This week I am at the Datatel User Group conference in Washington DC from Sunday through Wednesday. Definitely an abridged menu.
Sunday – the kids volunteered to cook us brunch – Delicious!
Pancakes and scrambled eggs
Eggs in a frame and sausage gravy & biscuits – everything was yummy!
I blogged all the DUG Food – YUM!
Wednesday night my Heart made us sort of an omelet nachos dinner (sorry – no pictures… just so yummy we gobbled it down!)
Thursday night we were at Ignite Baltimore – it was a great night of inspirational and informational lightening talks. Dinner that night was wings at Buffalo Wild Wings
Friday night I finally did the pork & broccoli stir fry. I like this dish and it was surprisingly satisfying.
Saturday was our last day on the slopes – I am so sad to see ski season coming to an end. We grabbed wings again on our way home.
So this was one of Those weeks but we did manage to cook a couple times.
