I got some Brussels sprouts that I'm going to saute with onions in butter with garlic, add baking mix to make roux and evaporated milk for sauce. If I make enough sauce, I'll add the cooked chicken thigh meat from yesterday's broth, and some pimentos for a Brussels/Ala King kind of one dish meal.

Dave, I TOTALLY did! Considering I didn't get home til just after 4 and dinner hit the table at 615 you can imagine how fast I was moving! My youngest helped with the gnocchi though. I roll, she cuts and shapes. I forgot to mention the fresh baked chocolate chip cookies that we had for dessert with our tea. Madeleine made those while I was kneading the gnocchi!

I haven't been keeping up with Lent stuff this year. My oldest daughter despises fish with a passion and I'm often too beat to think of a vegetarian entree. Good for you Dave for keeping it up! I think your dinner sounds nummy.

Not quite sure what dinner will be.

Any plans?

I hope you feel better now Katie.

Tonight is date night with our friends, so I'm not cooking. Susan won't tell me what she is making. All she will tell me is that it is Italian and it is something she had been wanting to try.

Get well soon, Katie.
I am thinking of getting the deep fryer out for some fish and chips. Although, I had a pretty fatty and high cholesterol meal last night. My 13 year old daughter has a few friends coming over to get ready before a community dance tonight. I'm looking to give them something quick and easy because they like to eat while, getting ready doing their hair, make up, chatting on Facebook, talking on cell phones, dancing, texting, giggling......Talk about multi tasking. They usually take over the house.
I usually hide in the kitchen.

Are they going to be eating before or while doing their hair, etc.? If during, they may not want something greasy!

I am going to make some crepes filled with ground lamb, feta, garlic and shallot. Served with a salad of romaine, cukes and tomato on the side. I would have had red onion in the salad but I forgot it and I don't want to go back for it.

Well, since there will be cukes and you don't think we are worth the effort to get the onions, James and I will have to respectfully decline our invitation.
(Enjoy your dinner!)
