Happy Mardi Gras! 3/5/19
Yay! I get to start the daily menu thread!

Chicken and andouille sausage for dinner tonight, of course! And maybe, just maybe, beignets for dessert.

Fat Tuesday! WhoHoo!

I've been so busy, I didn't see it coming.

I'm planning to make a "potted" London broil with a creamy onion and mushroom Au jus gravy, buttered pappardelle and steamed broccoli.

SO wanted to make her family recipe for golobkis. She's on her own with that recipe so I took it as an opportunity to make a recipe of lasagna, which she dislikes. So it's individual medley tonight with both of us getting special treats.

With no real forethought, I ended up scheduling pancakes for "Pancake Day". Just dumb Polish luck, since I am neither British nor am I making their thin pancakes. Instead, it's Breakfast for Supper with fluffy pancakes, ham, and eggs.

Today is also Paczki Day. Pancakes are easier to make than old style Polish Paczki, which is the version I grew up eating. My Nana made paczki that included mashed potatoes and potato water. They felt heavy to pick up, but were tender and rich. The modern paczki now sold everywhere is basically a richer jelly donut batter. Still yummy, but they don't taste like my memory. :heart:

Change of plans. I had leftover steak. Family had cheese, meat, fruit, bread and crackers.

Up here in Northern New England I guess I'm not into Fat Tuesday. Way too cold to go parading in the streets. Dinner tonight was a cashew chicken stir fry.

I vaguely remember paczkis in my younger years, which I think was pronounced something like punchkis. A friend's mother, who lived in Hamtramck, used to make them.
