Well, seeing as it is Pancake Tuesday, I am doing pancakes, sausages and hashbrowns. I am excited to have breakfast for dinner!

mmmm...pancakes!

No pancakes here, we had them on Sunday morning!

Tonight I made the boy a really fabulous dinner, Spicy Rubbed Chicken Breasts with Lemon-Shallot Sauce served on a bed of brown herbed rice with steamed broccoli. It came out so fabulous!!

I had the rest of the white wine I used in his sauce while I cooked for him (pinot grigio) , then I made my dinner...hippy food! Scrambled Spicy Tofu with Veggies!!!!

No cookin' here tonight. Buck and I are going to our favorite New Orleans-style restaurant to celebrate Mardi Gras. There'll be lots of wild and crazy decorations, the restaurant staff will be dressed in wild costumes and we'll enjoy plenty of good live music. It won't hurt, either, that Tuesday is the "all you can eat" crab night. Buck and I LOVE crabs and we will do some serious damage to those tasty crustaceans. Wahoo! Can't wait for the clock to strike 6 so we can get in the car!!! We'll come home filled with good food and loaded with colored beads.

dh got so excited when I told him Tuesday was pancake day. He assumed we were having pancakes for breakfast, the usual whole grain pancakes. But when I told him we were having pancakes for supper, and that I was making up a recipe for mashed potato pancakes, he started to get concerned. He does not do change very well, he wants the whole grain pancakes.

So we're having mashed potato pancakes with the left over brauts. Maybe a side of sweet potatoes if we need more food.

Kids are coming so it's 2 of the tupperware biggest bowls filed with cracked crab, a large oven proof dish filled with shrimp that have butter,garlic,parsley ,white wine and tons of pepper and several dashes of Worcestershire, lots of warm Italian bread, for sopping up the wine butter sauce, orzo with onions,mushrooms,garlic,butter and chicken broth, green salad...didn't get a chance to do my pear bread today so,it's some baked custard for dessert.

Gee I didn't get the memo on pancake day. Dug up a blast from the past from my inexperienced cooking days. Making an easy pork chop and applesauce bake with mashed potatoes, peas and brown bread (straight from the B&M can)
