What We're Eating - Week of 3/9/09

Bistec de Palomilla
chopped salad

A while ago I bought a bulk meat package from the local butcher. Included were some cube steaks that I had no idea what to do with. Recipes I found online were basically chicken-fried steak, which I'm sure would be delicious! I held out for something more healthy, and this week the NYT ran a story on the resurgence of cube steak popularity. This recipe is from that article. Oh, and of course they also included a chicken-fried steak with country gravy version!

Pizza Pouches

This "recipe" is on the Epicurious site, but it's basically taking pizza dough and lining a muffin tin, adding sauce, a meatball, and cheese. This will be good for a quick meal before baseball practice.

Grilled Pork Chops with Tomatillo and Green Apple Sauce
Roasted Potatoes

Baked Penne with Chicken and Sundried Tomatoes

This recipe is from MS's Everyday Food. It makes a double recipe - one to freeze. I love having meals in the freezer for later - it's like money in the bank!

Layered Greek Dip with pita chips

This is a Greek version of the popular Mexican layered dip - I'll post it if it's really good!

I hope you're planning to feed the kids more than just dip on Friday!


I would love to see some more pictures of your creations please.

Thank you.

Yeah, that's a good point - we will be happy with just dip, but they will probably want something else!

I'm going to post the recipe for the bagels with pictures next.
