MMMmmmmm, Kitchenelf - that menu sounds so good!

Hubby and I both have to study tonight, but I shall be whipping up a quick (but special) Highland Pasta with Smoked Salmon (recipe from www.deliaonline.com) tonight. I bought heart-shaped pasta :D For dessert I'm going to use a nice bought raspberry sorbet, with fresh raspberries and a slosh or two of Raspberry di Amore liqueur poured over the top.

I'm also baking a valentines cake for the kids right now.

Paint.

Nothing too special. I am back in the working world again and still getting used to it and the cupboard is bare-ish. So tonight we will have pork chops, roasted potatoes, and salad. HH made brownies last night so we will have those for dessert.

How are the jobs going so far, mud? Hope you're adjusting OK!

It's a little schizo, PA. I am working both jobs for the first time this week, and apparently the hours will change every week, at least at Pier 1. Right now Pier 1 is taking any and all time I can give them to get the store opened, so I will be working there 6 days this week and 2 at Curves. Plus I have to run daughter to the orthodontist and another appointment this week and HH will be out of town tomorrow night.

I need to get organized and GET SOME FOOD IN THIS HOUSE! At least the cleaning lady came today, so I have a clean but ill-nourished home.

Shrimp scampi tonight with angel hair pasta, a nice loaf of crunchy Italian bread and a bag of baby salad greens, (yeah I had to resort to a bag of salad this time of year) dressed with a light mustard vinegrette.
John.

Kitchennisse, I printed the Wildfire Horseradish Crusted Pork Chops, they sound absolutely wonderful. Love Pork Chops and am always looking for new things to do with them. And I always have rosemary and thyme growing in my garden, horseraddish in the fridge, also have all the ingredients. Cannot make it tonight becuase I planned Norwegian Meatballs with wild mushrooms, wide egg noodles, asparagus and salad. PC's probably tomorrow. THanks for the recipe.

since being under the weather of late, I really can't make up my mind if I'm going to cook or if we're going out for the Valentine meal. I'd like to cook but for now, my hair is the event of the day so I'm doing that. If I have time to venture into a market and pick up a few things, maybe I'll get ambitious in the kitchen. for now, the idea of having someone else worry about the meal and the dishes sounds better, I must admit.

Go out - I know how exhausted I get just drying my hair when I'm sick - enjoy being waited on.

They are VERY good norgeskog - just be careful not to overcook them - I can't wait to eat! LOL
