I thought we were going to have an early spring, here at StoneGable. The weather has been so warm, the daffodils are blooming and so is the forsythia! But we had a couple inches of snow today and there is more snow and freezing rain in the forecast this upcoming week! And the temperature has dropped by more than 20 degrees. So, I’m not quite ready for spring cooking! The garlic rants and leek tarts will have to wait for another couple weeks! Here’s what’s on the menu this week!
Let’s cook dinner!!!!
I’ve had a busy, busy day weekend with family. So when everyone goes home I’ll be ordering a pizza!
I love easy and stick-to-your-ribs recipes. And what sounds better for a Monday night than CROCK POT BEEF STROGANOFF! If you like recipes you will love The Wholesome Dish where this scrumptious sounding recipe is from. YUM!
- Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff
- Fried Spinach
Snow is in our forecast tonight!!! Our poor spring blooms are so confused this year!
We are such big soup eaters! I literally could eat it for a meal every day of the year! If you try one thing on this week’s menu the Roasted Cauliflower Cheddar soup should be it! And make THE Dip too!
Have you ever lost your mojo in an area of your life? Seems like being in a wheelchair for so long has messed with my photography ability. So I can’t wait to take a one-on-one photography class today to get everything straightened out! It’s important to tend to that all important “mojo”!
- Braised Chicken With Artichokes and Olives
- Nani’s Sauteed Rice
- Sauteed Broccoli with Balsamic Vinegar and Golden Raisins
I love the idea of individual serving food. No wonder I love hand pies. And these savories are made even easier (and better) by using puff pastry. When you buy puff pastry don’t scrimp. Find it made with real butter and not oil. It’s worth the extra money! The taste is so so much better.
- Puff Pastry Ham, Cheese and Broccoli Hand Pies
- Strawberry Spinach Salad
I have a culinary confession. I do not like to eat fish dishes that have cheese in them. Cream Cheese is okay. But for some reason, salmon and Feta cheese sound delicious together! Just this once, I’m breaking no fish with cheese rule.
I love Saturday mornings. Saturday is often a work day for me, but I treat myself to a lazy morning on Saturday if I don’t have plans. And when I’m feeling lazy I love to watch the cooking channel! I hope you get a lazy Saturday morning once in awhile. It’s good for the soul!
I am wild about the flavor of flat iron steak! If you have not tried it, you should. It’s so easy to make.
