Menu of the Week

Hi folks,

It was a busy week, and today and tomorrow will like wise be busy getting ready for the next onslaught of winter weather.  Seems like every time we dig out we get more..this week they are talking about snow, rain, freezing rain and more who knows what it will end up like out there...

PLUS we have the Super Bowl to get ready for next Sunday..we will be going to my sisters, so I am hoping to have the time to make something to bring.

This weeks Tuesdays With Dorie is Great Grains Muffins on page 8 and 9 of Dorie Greenspan's Baking-From my Home to Yours

And FFWD is a Basque Potato Torte page 142 (which I might make as a appetizer for Super Bowl Sunday)

And from Baked Exporations is; Double Chocolate Loaf with Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Spread, pg. 50 (Baked Sunday Mornings is every 2 weeks so you always have time to space things out)

I have a menu planned out for the week.

Hamburgers, French Fries, homemade cole slaw

Leftover day..finish up the Cod./Corn chowder

Heros and cole slaw

Stuffed shells, and green salad, and Italian bread

Chicken Tortellini soup (didn't make it last week)  Italian bread

Finish the Chicken B'stilla which is a chicken pie in filo crust from last week's FFWD (which I didn't make until Sunday)

I might mix things up a bit so we aren't having chicken too many times in a row!


Off to plan! (and dig more..this afternoon when I came in the house smelled like oil.  Our tank in in the basement but at the present moment we have no paths dug to it (no inside access--outside only) So with the weather coming this week, I need to check it and be ready in case I need to make a service call!!  It was just filled this week so it might just be a few fumes left...)

and here is another early morning picture...hhmmm..they are starting to all look alike..haha!  It melted down a little...

Bye for now,



  1. Hope your weather is not too bad this week. Nice menu!

  2. I love stuffed shells! They say we are supposed to get more snow this week too.... oy.

  3. Thanks....well we will see about the weather..being what it is it CAN change (as we all know!).

    I Love stuffed shells too...

    We have been busy all day shoveling and digging.....we need a new oil is leaking like a sieve...I think it just started today, but even though we had paths around the back to the basement (no inside access) we needed to make them wider for a hand truck...Nuts..I really had other plans for that money..oh well...
    We still have to make a path straight to the street ( they want it 3-4' wide) and that has to go through the snow drift from the town plow!
    And we have to empty a pan under the dripping tank every hour ALL night! We are going to take shifts..I am tired already...
