What is for Dinner, Wednesday, March 25th?

I'm making a Penne with Chicken-n-Broccoli Casserole and garlic bread.

What are you having?

I just got the new Fine Cooking edition of Eat Smart and I'm making my way through the recipes. This is a good one--I can actually see myself adding more than one or two of these to the regular cycle. And there are some really good guilt-free desserts.

So, I'm trying the turkey meatloaf with parmesan smashed potatoes and roasted asparagus.

I am making stuffed shells (its a Weight Watchers recipe), a tossed salad and I'm trying the black bean brownie recipe. I am desperate for chocolate, obviously.

This morning my little grandson asked if I could make "hoe cakes" for breakfast. I asked him how did he know about them and he had been reading a book about George Washington whose favorite breakfast food was hoe cakes. My question is: Are all hoe cakes made with corn meal? I used a biscuit recipe and cooked them in a frying pan (he doesn't eat cornbread) and served them with butter and honey. He was happy. I suppose what I made was more like campfire biscuits.

Broiled Salmon with a Tarragon/Pepita crust, roasted carrots and brussels sprouts.

and since I'm on my cleanse and can't have any sugar, for dessert I'm making that yummy 5-minute chocolate cake in the mug. He shouldn't be "deprived" just because I can't have any!

Did some experimentation with mediterranean. Chicken salad medit style: w/ olive oil, mayo, onions, oregano, garlic, and olives. It came out well the next day after it had time to marinate. Pasta with some of that squeeze tube pesto; I just got a tube of that from Trader joes, oh and fried mozzarella sticks! I had never made mozz. sticks before. My they get real messy dont they? they tend to fall apart quickly in the hot oil but they came out well. I used a little heavy cream in the batter with the egg wash. Flour/egg + cream wash/bread crumbs. The batter worked out well.

Didn't get to my chicken livers the other night, so tonight I had sauteed chicken livers in white wine-tarragon sauce, couscous, green beans and homemade oatmeal-raisin-nut cookies. I'm full.

This was our Penne-Chicken-Broccoli casserole last night. I was busy doing other things and didn't get a chance to post. It was really good, and I served it with tossed salad and whole grain bread-n-butter.
