Here’s the menu from the March 31st Saturday night dinner.
Pan seared hot dogs (meated & meatless)
Roasted beet salad
First family dinner minus dad. It was a tad odd not having him around. OK more than a tad though no one was really letting on about it.
The dinner menu looks remarkably like the Saturday night menu from 3/16.
Salad with strawberries
Baked ham w/pineapple mustard sauce
Hot cross buns (ala ted_badger)
Transformer birthday cake (for Benny’s 4th birthday courtesy of his mom)
This was an accompaniment to a lamb stew type item I made last night.
I’m very lucky to have a husband who enjoys making pie crust. He made a savory crust with black pepper and fresh rosemary for this dish.
Roasted Winter Vegetable Pot Pie
My dad passed away on March 13th, two days after his 68th birthday. We gave out “prayer cards” at his wake with his picture on one side and the recipe for his favorite chocolate cake on the other. The recipe was handled down from his grandmother and has become a tradition for family birthdays.
Melt 2 squares of cooking chocolate and 3 tablespoons of margarine in a pot. Add ½ cup boiling water, 1 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Remove from heat and mix well. In a separate bowl mix ½ teaspoon of baking soda with ½ cup of sour cream. Add this to the pot, mix well, add 1 egg, beat, add 1 cup flour, beat and pour into a greased and a floured 8″ pan. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes.
Baked Ham w/mustard & brown sugar sauce
Sauteed Fennel & Apples
Irish Soda bread for dessert
I wanted a menu that didn’t have a last minute cooking associated with it this week. I saw the chicken recipe on an episode of Nigella Express featuring the the fabulous Nigella Lawson. For once the chicken was ready well in advance of dinner.
