What Did I Cook This Week?

Maybe this will become a new thing if I retain the cooking chores around here.  Also if I do any interesting.  This week was rather tame, especially after my parents came home 2 weeks early from their trip.  This didn’t change the menu so much as I didn’t bother taking pictures of the Wednesday and Thursday dishes.  Had more important things to do.  It was only marinated chicken over bagged salad and pizza muffins, so no real loss.  Monday and Tuesday had the fun stuff.

Pasta with Asian Meatballs

Pasta with Asian Meatballs

These are the meatballs from last week with pasta and the last of some vodka sauce.  Small tip: Make sure the meatballs are fully cooked in the microwave before popping one in your mouth.  Cold core is icky.  Have to say the Asian Meatballs were a success.

These are Maple Kielbasa Bites, which are rather simple to make.  1/4 Cup Maple Syrup + 2 Tbsps of Dijon Mustard = dip.  Just coat, skewer, and grill.  For some reason the coating didn’t stick that well this time, so it didn’t have a strong taste.  The hardest part of this recipe was finding the skewers since my parents packed them away somewhere.  Had to buy cheap ones.

This coming week will have the interesting meals.  With my mom going in for surgery any day now, my dad is taking care of her and I’m making the kitchen.  I think Monday is the only easy day with chicken sausage and fries.  After that I have a tofu stir fry, BBQ roast beef sandwiches, canadian bacon sandwiches (BLT variation), and sweet garlic chicken.  Not sure how I’m supposed to edit Curse of the Dark Wind while doing all this.  That isn’t even counting the following week where I tackle a Bourbon Chicken recipe and the ‘king’ of the vacation menu TACO LASAGNA!  That one is a two day workload.

    The Asain meatballs look deliscious. I have neve3r liked anything sweet with my meats like maple anything or fruit like pineapple, or any sort of sweet sauces or jellies…so I skip Kielbasa and sweet garlic chicken..unless, of course, I was tired and someone else was cooking….then I’d likely eat whatever. 🙂
