March 14 - 18

Happy Daylight Savings Time! Is it starting or ending? I have no idea. I know I'll just be messed up, time-wise, for the next week or so. Just another layer of confusion for my already addled brain...

But it also means spring is coming, right? The snow's mostly gone, I had the sunroof open last week (but now it's raining), and I've decided that if it snows again I'll tailspin into a deep weather-related depression. So, please, spring... stay.

And so we'll grill. Phil got a rotisserie attachment for the grill (not a Ronco countertop rotisserie from those grand infomercials) for his birthday, and we're taking it on the maiden voyage tonight. I'm very excited.

Roasted sweet potatoes
Roasted veggies

Huevos Rancheros: Pinto beans cooked with spices, salsa, maybe a little chorizo or leftover chicken and spread on tortillas. Bake the bean-covered tortillas in the oven for about 1o minutes, adding a little cheese so it melts. Fry an egg. Take the tortillas out, add cold toppings (avocado, shredded cabbage or lettuce, tomato, salsa) then top with the egg. Glorious.

Tuesday & Wednesday
Another nutty mid-week. We'll do grilled cheese sandwiches. Maybe tomato soup.

Salmon cakes over salad: Not sure yet, but I think I'll just use some canned salmon, mix it with some tiny-chopped sauteed onion & celery, a little bit of bread crumb, a little bit of egg, shape into a little cake, cook in a pan, serve over salad. Maybe the salad will have roasted red pepper. Maybe pine nuts. Maybe not.

Have a lovely week!

March 7 - 11

It's a beautiful sunny day. Just wanted to point that out.

Trying another thing I've never cooked before... short ribs. Got some from the CSA a while back, and found this recipe yesterday. Sounds fabulous, so I have high hopes. I'm not too sure about the egg noodle part, though. I'm guessing I'd be just as happy without them, but we'll see how I feel tonight.


Venison burgers
Sweet potato fries
Sauteed veggies

Tuesday & Wednesday
Busy mid-week... probably grilled cheese, leftovers, or salad with random stuff

Fish tacos!
Season some cod with taco-ish spices, pan sear. Break it into chunks.
Put in tortillas, top with salsa, shredded cabbage, avocado, onion, tomato, black beans, etc.

Have a lovely week!
