Menu 12/7

I've decided it makes more sense to blog after we make a meal than before. So...

Wednesday: Chicken Marsala from More Than a Cook Book.

Yeah, I liked this one so much I took a picture. Crazy.

Thursday: Mozzarella Eggplant Bake from Taste of Home. I love my taste of home cook book. I love eggplant. So much love :)

Friday. Over the Border Enchiladas from Taste of Home Aug/Sept Magazine. Have I recommended you subscribe to this magazine yet? Because if I haven't done that, I really should.

Saturday: Bacon Cheese Fries from No More than 5 Ingredients. These are technically an appetizer, but we rarely care about such arbitrary categories. 

Sunday Baked Fish with Cheese Sauce from Taste of Home Magazine Oct/Nov. I over thickened this sauce, and therefore didn't like it. I hate it when recipes say to "cook until thickened." Thickened to what consistency?? I can get it so thick it won't come out of the pan, or just thick enough that I can tell the difference. These are widely different, see what I'm saying? So frustrating.

Monday: Baked Creamy Macaroni, my great grandmother's recipe (that she cut out of something and glued into her old cook book). Nick and I have used two types of macaroni and cheese; the one where the uncooked noodles get cooked during the baking, with cheese layered between and the dish filled with milk, or the one where you cook the noodles and cook a cheese sauce and then bake it...

I like the former, Nick likes the latter. When we sign the divorce papers, the reason for separation will be "macaroni."*

But first we have to get married.

Tuesday: Golden Parmesan Potaotoes from Good Cookin with Good Friends. We expected this recipe to be really bland: it was potatoes cut into slices, battered in salt, pepper, flour, and Parmesan cheese, placed in a casserole dish with a 1/3 cup of melted butter at the bottom, and baked for an hour, covered. But it was tasty!! Weird :)

*We do not actually plan on getting divorced. Who plans on getting divorced? Ridiculous.


  1. Ha! Your macaroni divorce cracks me up. :D Hope thing shave been good at the studio! I miss you both!

  2. We miss you too! Hope you start feeling better soon :/
