Menu Plan Monday- June 1, 2009

I'm pretty impressed with myself. I goofed up a little (I really need to use a Sharpie to mark stuff in the freezer), but was able to improvise and it wasn't a big deal. Martijn's dinner got cancelled so we ate a weird mash of leftovers one night and I think we ought to do that more often. It's like random buffet night! Anyhow, here's the week in review-

The Tortilla Pie, as always, was a hit. Martijn batted his eyelashes at me and asked me to make it for his birthday, so how could I refuse that?!

These Tuna Balls are VERY good. I'm going to make them again for sure. I am trying to decide if they'd freeze okay or if they'd fall apart. I did use seasoned breadcrumbs in them rather than plain. I think they'd have been kinda boring without.

I'd planned on making that Chicken with Cornflakes, but I actually thawed out pork instead. Oops, so I improvised. It's not something I'd make again so I won't share it with you, but it wasn't deadly either!

My intention with the corndogs was to figure out how to bake them. I just ended up frying them and they were delicious. This is one of those "Once every 5 year" recipes, otherwise you'll die of hardened arteries.

This week is going to be pretty easy-


Taco Salad

Paprika Pork Chops

Inside Out Burgers

My father in laws birthday is this week, so we're going over there for Chinese one night and hopefully Martijn will be having his dinner so he'll be cooking one night.

What's everyone else eating this week? I need more ideas for future menus!

Well Done!!

One time a long time ago, for a New Year's Eve Day, I had some delicious fried corndogs. I was living in Stavanger, Norway and my missionary companion and I were craving some real down to home American food. So we made corndogs. They were so wonderful! I have never had any since that could match them.

However, I believe that they tasted so wonderful because we were sooooo missing America and the foods we were used to that even liver would have tasted awesome!!!!
(I can eat liver, it is not that bad to me. But I figure people would understand what I was meaning if I used the food (is it food?) liver in that comparison!!!)

Have a great day!!!
