    Hi menu buddies!!!! Happy Weekend!!! Woohoo!!! I think I made everything I had planned for the past week, but then I didn't get too adventurous!
    I had a cooking accident though on Monday. Sliced a good chunk out of my thumb on my mandoline. Extremely painful!!! I'm on blood-thinners, so I bled like a son-of-a-gun for 2 days!! But today I'm finally not bandaged up. Sooo tender though. Wahhhh!!! I've told people that I lost a epic battle in kitchen stadium! icon_smile.gif

    My DS leaves on Monday morning for spring training. Gonna miss him!!! Seven months until he's home again. Sending him off with steak in his belly though!!!

    Here's my menu. Share yours!

    Saturday - surprise going away party for my DS given by his girlfriend. Gonna be bringing his favorite cookies!

    Sunday - Belated Valentine's dinner - Grilled Steak, Linda's Twice-Baked Potatoes, Broccoli in Garlic Butter, French Napoleons

    Monday - BBQ Chicken in crock, baked potatoes, corn

    Tuesday - Spicy Kielbasa Pasta! with salad

    Wednesday - Beef Taco Rice Skillet with salad and tortillas

    Thursday - Bourbon chicken from Pinterest, with rice and vegies

    Friday - baseball game, so food on the go!!

    So you vs Flay, Simon, or Morimoto huh? I'll tell you, I use that crazy guard every time after I sliced off my tip - well not completely off, but, it sure hurt. Painful! I can relate.
    Well, you got to spend good time with DS, and a good dinner to send him off. That is quality time.
    I've still been working on the pantry, freezer, etc. So, nothing too fancy hear either; but V-day was fantastic with a friend. He brought the seafood, I just cooked. His parents own a seafood business in OR, and send him a box about 4x a yr. V-day is one thinking his wife was here, but she is overseas in Iraq. We had fish and crab caught the day before and shipped to us.
    Salmon, dungeness and king crab, smoked fish spread, and crab cakes. Four (4) salon fillets that were 2" thick 10" wide and 3' long. Unreal.

    Well, menu coming, finishing up mine tonight.

    C - I know TRUE sauerbraten is a much longer process with the sour brine, for several days - if you want a true recipe.

    This mix from my local restaurant which comes in 2 small packets. The brine, which is done 24 hours; then the sauce to cook it in. They came up with it based on their recipe which they served; which I know won't be exactly, but hopefully it will be close. And spatzel is so fun to make

    C--sorry about the cut! I have heard of people using special gloves (Kevlar?) for the mandolin to prevent that. No more "secret ingredients" in the sliced veggies!

    We have next to nothing in the fridge right now, which is good and not so good. I think I will be doing Sunday early morning zombie shopping -- so much quicker with no one in the store!

    Sat – Unstuffed Cabbage Roll Casserole (from freezer) with egg noodles

    Sun – Pumpkin (Squash), Leek, Bean and Bacon Soup with whole grain bread (last bread from freezer)

    Mon – get-together w/inlaws (did not happen last week)

    Tue – http://www.pbs.org/food/recipes/pandoras-chicken/ --- it's kind of a variation on chicken marbella --- with leftover bread and/or leftover noodles

    Wed – my standby Baklava Salmon (Salmon With Honey, Butter, Walnuts, and Mustard) with polenta oven fries and veg

    Thu – shredded bbqy chicken with cornbread (adapted Moosewood recipe) and green beans

    Fri – garlic shrimp with asparagus except with some other veg, maybe frozen sugar snaps

    Have a good week! --M

    My oldest is planning a Hobbit Menu tomorrow:

    Breakfast Cracker Barrel's Hash Browns Casserole - Copycat
    Second Breakfast Denny's-Style French Toast
    Elevenses Cottage Cheese and Fresh Fruit Plate
    Luncheon Panera's Cream Cheese Potato Soup
    Tea Tea Biscuits
    Dinner Chicken Pot Pie With 2 Crusts
    Dessert Dark Chocolate Cake
    Supper Blender Quiche - or Whatever You Have in Your Kitchen Leftover

    Fresh fruit will accompany most meals.

    I doubt that she'll make everything on her list -- and there will be a LOT of dishes.

    It went well; the only snafu was that she was the only one home between 'elevenses' and 'tea,' so when the rest of us got back around 3, we had lunch and tea at the same time.
