Main Meal for Sunday, March 13th

I'll be grilling some marinated chicken thighs (white wine and herb marinade), pilaf and steamed broccoli.

I've only decided on the entree, which will be crepes filled with a chicken mixture of sauteed mushrooms, shallots, white wine, tarragon, cream, then topped with shredded Parmesan cheese and baked. I'm thinking some steamed green beans or Brussels sprouts and baked potatoes on the side. Not sold on the potato idea yet, though. Last of the King Cake for dessert.

My main meal may have just been eaten. I made an open faced sandwich with some slices of smoked cajun pork roast and leftover giblet gravy. With sugar snap peas on the side. Tonight I think I'll grill another burger.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

Have a piece of salmon thawing, got some fresh dill at the farmer's stand yesterday for sauce. Maybe will bake some thin sweet potato chips, add a small salad and finish up with an Alix's Cranberry Oat Square made with its grape jelly alternative. Strictly speaking, they may be day-old baked goods (I made them yesterday), but still the perfect ending. Mmmm.
No matter how simple it seems, it's complicated.

I'm miserable...started with a sore throat Friday night, and now I have a full- blown "nose" cold. I pulled chicken stock and some chicken out of the freezer, added carrots, rice, and celery...waiting for the veggies to be done, then I'm making it into Greek Lemon Soup. Love Greek Lemon Soup. My friend in grad school from Greece "SWORE" that this is the chicken soup all Greek mommas served to kill a cold. I've also been taking TABLESPOONS of horseradish (3X a day--Dr. Oz claims it boosts the autoimmune system) and my DH's potent--home-canned tomato juice, garlic, and hot peppers (served hot) as a beverage. Not to mention Cold-FX and lots of sleep. Good thing I don't have to work today!

I grilled some marinaded chicken and made a Mexican salad with chopped red onion, green bell peppers, cheddar, and home made dressing. For the dressing I mixed oil, mayo, chipotle chilis in adobo, and lime juice and cilantro.

I will be thin-slicing the last of the pork roast and we will have that, sauerkraut, and maybe potato pancakes.
