This Weeks Eats 2/11/13

Mmmmmm, ain't that purty??

We even picked up some sake and dusted off our wee sake cups and carafe.

Okay, enough about the seven flavor beef - we're gonna try a new Thai dish this week and probably polish off most of these:

I'll use any excuse to make the Christmas cookie recipe again.
  • Monday - Pizza
  • Tuesday - easy cheesy chili chicken breasts (verrrry old Food Network recipe we broke out from our archives)
  • Wednesday - Thai green curry turkey meatballs (this week's pinterest experiment)
  • Thursday - angel hair with pomodoro sauce: just saute garlic and onion with olive oil in a large pan, add a 28oz can of whole san marzano tomatoes and mash with a potato masher, season w/kosher salt, pepper and crushed red pepper, cook about 15 minutes/until it thickens and add LOTS of fresh basil and fresh grated Parmesan cheese.  (and maybe some other red items for a fun Valentine's Day dinner with the kids)
  • Friday - Italian beef stew and mashed potatoes
  • Saturday - chicken parmesan (one of our faves for 'Valentine's Day' and a good bottle of wine)
  • Sunday - chopped chicken salad (grilled chicken, bacon, avocado, red onion, green onion, blue cheese and homemade vinaigrette - olive oil, red wine vinegar, dash of honey, dash of dijon mustard, salt and pepper to taste)


  1. Sounds like a great week! I can't wait to try the seven flavor beef and the chopped chicken salad. Also, those cookies look fantastic. You just can't go wrong with decorated sugar cookies!

  2. Your cookies are so cute! I run out of time and patience to decorate cookies these days. :) Hope you all had a great, yummy week!
