Monday, 2/28/2011, What's cooking?

Split pea soup and salad.

Any plans?

I WAS going to make ham and beans but was tired after all the partying yesterday and neglected to soak the beans. DH has class so I'm thinking just warm up some of the leftovers in the fridge. We'll be going away next week so need to clean it out anyway.

I'm thinking of making a pizza for tonight. The Italian bread recipe that I have been using tastes like it would make a good crust. I've got some pepperoni, beer brats (that I'll slice) and capicola. I just need to make a mushroom run. It should be nicely loaded.

Ooooo, that sounds good pacanis! I think I'll make some pizza on the grill later on this week. We've got some storms moving in so it looks like soup is in order. I think I'll make some white beans and mustard greens soup with some cornbread.

We've had nearly 6 inches of rain and severe storms, some tornadoes, the last several days and it's still raining and blowing. That can only mean one thing...SOUP.

I'm going to drag out my clam chowder recipe and stir that up and we'll have a tossed salad and French bread along with. Key lime pound cake for dessert.

I'm ready for spring!

I would be concerned about that. There is significant info about the dangers of boiling/steaming foods in plastic wraps. The concern is the release of carcinogens that will transfer to the food. Many manufacturers' sites now specifically tell you not to us their product like that.

Try using a biscuit or round cookie cutter in the water to contain the egg until it sets.
