Week 38 or 39 .... but who's counting?

Okay so I missed a week.  An entire week, folks.  4 kids + winter break = no blogging.  We have just been busy with stuff.  I could not tell you what in particular but it has been hectic around these parts.  I am still catching up.  You know what that means?  Cleaning and lots of laundry :(  Not my favourite.  You know what is my favourite?  Food!  C'mon, that was too easy people.
Anyway, I have a few recipes up my sleeve this week but until then, a menu ....

We had friends over to watch the Oscars.  I LOVE the Oscars and I LOVE food but I love them both together with friends the most!  We had General Tao chicken wings, guacamole and chips, a veggie and fruit platter, caesar salad and homemade pizzas - cheese and pepperoni for the kids and BBQ chicken with cilantro and then pesto, artichoke, caramelized onion and sun dried tomato for the grown ups.   Friend made homemade skor bars - to die for!

Steak with horseradish dijon cream sauce, crispy parmesan smashed potatoes, garlic mushroom green beans

cashew pork over rice with glazed carrots on the side (I am going to do a mashup of recipes and see how it goes!)

glazed meatloaf over creamy polenta, broccoli and cheese sauce

chicken rollatini with mashed sweet potatoes, corn and salad

no idea, possibly date night for D and me but if not then I will make spaghetti and garlic bread

something simple - maybe paninis

What are you cooking this week?  Is anyone out there reading this?  I need some ideas - they do not have to be gourmet, just ANYTHING to cook!!!


  1. I don't know what I'm cooking. Ask me at 4pm :)

  2. I love that you post your dinners! I will start following your blog.
