Last Week – Menu 2 – Week of Jan 9, 2011 – Here is a recap and notes:
Sunday Roast: Roast beef w/ roasted veggies & taters, gravy, Yorkshire Pudding –
Cookies & Cream dessert.
– This was a very traditional Sunday Roast. We were celebrating Christmas one last time with my son’s girlfriend so we wanted traditional and she had never had my Heart’s Yorkshires, which are my daughter’s favorite. She had also never had the cookies and cream dessert, also a favorite.
Monday: Fish enchiladas – This was totally my Heart’s idea, I used swai for this dish. It was a bit too soupy / liquidy so I’m going to work on that in the future, but the taste was wonderful and my Heart enjoyed it. The swai definitely has little to no taste so I’m going to try a different fish next time. This dish made three servings, my Heart had seconds, and two lunches.
Tuesday: Beef stew – Without question – The best stew I have ever made. It turned out very rich and satisfying. The cheese balls were a perfect accompaniment. There were two servings and one lunch and we froze 8 of the cheese bread balls for future use.
Wednesday: Stir-fried pork & broccoli on rice – This was an experiment and turned out very nice… definitely a make again. I’m going to try other experiments with this type of pork, it is very handy. This made two hearty servings and one lunch.
Thursday: Out – Celebrating our 3rd Anniversary – I can’t believe I forgot to take pictures of dinner, we went out to a local sushi restaurant, Edo Sushi… it is very nice and has excellent sushi.
Friday: (skiing) Shrimp & Scallops on rice – Today was our actual anniversary so I wanted to make a nice dinner and this is one of my Heart’s favorites. The grocery store didn’t have enough scallops so I added shrimp which turned out lovely. This isn’t a complicated meal but it always seems special.
Saturday: (skiing) out
