    Hi menu peeps!!! How is everyone? I've had a hectic week. Well, maybe it wasn't so hectic, but it felt like it cuz I've had a doozy of a cold. Yech!!
    One night I just wasn't up to cooking or eating, so the menfolk went out for hamburgers and I had a cup of noodles. icon_confused.gif So that night's meal will hit this week's menu.
    So here's my menu for this coming week. Share yours!!!

    Saturday - Bulgolgi with rice and vegies

    Sunday - Creamy Tomato Basil Tortellini Soup with some sort of panini

    Monday - Baked tacos, rice and beans

    Tuesday - Tomatillo Posole with tortillas

    Wednesday - To Die for Crock Pot Roast with mashed potatoes and green beans

    Thursday - Chili's Copycat Cajun Chicken Pasta with salad and bread

    Sorry, but no recipe links this week. Since I have been trying to use what is on hand; I can't really make a recipe accurately since I'm not buying anything; so most of my recipes are simply thrown together. The only recipes I am using are my own which are NOT posted. Sorry.

    C - I love the possole, sounds good. I love tomatillos.

    C - question. I see the TDF pot roast. Do you do anything when you make it? I did make it and cut a lot of the packets in half and it was still too salty/artificial for me. The meat was tender and the taste was OK. I was just curious. I so wanted to love it and just didn't. I read many of the review; and I did give it a decent review because my friends enjoyed it. Just curious as to how you made it if you don't mind sharing.

    I like the recipe, although I don't make it a lot. I use a lot more meat than the recipe calls for. But I don't think it's too salty. At least I don't remember thinking so. Maybe I did cut the ranch mix down. I'll let you know after I make it again.

    Thx, just curious. I do go low on salt; but yes I think I did low salt too.

    C- I hope you are feeling better. I also feel like it was a hectic week, but I am off to a great start today because the grocery shopping is done and put away, and the weather is uninviting so I am going to get a head start on some cooking!
    SC- I know how it goes with recipes and using stuff up -- I don't end up doing many reviews because by the time something makes it to the table, it's only vaguely similar to the recipe!

    Sat – Chicken Chasseur with rest of no-knead bread that I actually managed to make last week! It is yummy with a nice hint of sourdough.

    Sun – Peruvian Anticuchos except just using stew meat (no hearts this time), with cooked greens and brown rice

    Mon – Artichoke, Potato, and Portabella Casserole (will sub quinoa mixed w/egg for the potato to improve the nutrition)

    Tue – Salmon and Snow Pea Stir Fry with rest of rice from Sun (I always cook at least 2x what is needed, for energy/time savings and b/c the rice cooker just works better when closer to full capacity)

    Wed – leftovers from Mon

    Thu – African Chicken in Spicy Red Sauce, Authentic Injera (aka Ethiopian Flat Bread) (trying again), green beans

    Fri – my birthday – maybe takeout Thai
