Poor grammar on my part. I meant one choice (chicken or brats) for lunch and the other for dinner. And I have decided for lunch it will be the chicken over rice and tonight it will be a couple brats grilled, with sautéed onion, pepper and potatoes on bolillo rolls.

My SO is recovering from eye surgery that he had last week. So, we are going to celebrate at a later date. Tonight, it's going to be homemade meatballs tossed in gravy and served atop rice. On the side, bread -n- butter and a nice salad.

James and I are spending Valentine's Day about 90 miles apart, so I made something special for him last night (Welsh Rarebit from his Star Trek Cookbook) to go along with the meat and vegetable (which weren't anything special. He really liked it. I am working on a special thing to send him this evening though. I don't think he looks in the "what's for supper" threads very often, so I will go ahead and say what it is. I am making a PowerPoint called "James and Barbara Leonard: The Romance of the Century." LOL So far I have how we met and our wedding. Back to work on it now!

I am going to have homemade tacos.

Barbara

Valentine's Day Supper

Well, stuffed mushroom caps (bacon-cream cheese, onion--I wanted oven-fried mushrooms but he nixed that), followed by grilled salmon with a cherry sauce (http://www.cooksrecipes.com/sauce/ch...recipe.html--I use lime instead of lemon juice--made the sauce yesterday); quinoa with cumin-scented roasted sweet potatoes, tossed salad (romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, strawberries, and a olive oil-balsamic vinegar dressing), and fresh blueberries with cream and maple syrup for dessert.

2. Put the french fried onions in a zip top bag and crush them. Pour the crushed onions into another large shallow bowl

3. Spray a Pyrex or ceramic baking dish with the cooking spray. Use a dish large enough to not crowd the chicken.

4. Dip one chicken breast into the butter mixture to coat.

5. Place the chicken in the crushed onions and press to coat, flip and press to coat the other side.

6. Place the chicken in the baking dish.

7. Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts.
