I think I'll finally get around to making that French onion soup that I've been craving.

That sounds like a great meal, jabbur, and I'm sure it will be greatly appreciated!

I was planning on making salmon cakes with a lemon sauce, rice pilaf and green beans, but what was supposed to be a quiet day has turned out to be quite hectic and aggravating so far, so it may end up being pizza night!

One of my mans very favorite meals, sounds wonderful. I love making lemon sauce, it goes on almost everything really nicely.

jabbur, I'm convinced you'll be giving them more than a hearty, warming meal but the inner warmth which comes from knowing people care about them. M\y your work be blessed.



We had cod fillets baked in a buttered casserole topped with breadcrumbs mixed with olive oil, herbs and lemon juice and a sprinkling of grated cheese and baked til topping was crisp. Served with broccoli and a few new potatoes rolled in some tartare sauce.

Steak Diane, baked potatoes and romaine salad. Been craving beef recently and Steak Diane is one of our favorites. Should fit the bill just fine.

Think I'll just do pork chops with asparagus and couscous tonight. That should be quick and will leave time to decorate the house a bit.

French chicken in a pot (from CI's Jan/Feb Issue), Caesar salad, hot bread....

Whole chicken cooks for 1.5 to 2 hrs at 250 after browning on both sides, with just a spattering of aromatic veggies, in a very tight pot at the lowest oven shelf setting. The juice in the pot is strained and defatted and passed with the carved bird.

Too easy not to try
