I honestly don’t know where the time went this week. We are throwing two parties this weekend so I made two batches of chex mix. Since I had about three cups of cereal left when all was said and done, I also made puppy chow for the first time! Talk about wild, I know. Our house is a pretty tasty place to be right now.
Sunday – Mustard Milanese from The Smitten Kitchen
Duh. We’re never going to stop making or eating this. Also it was 100% the best choice after Galentine’s Day weekend.
Tuesday – Sauteed Chicken Cutlets with Lime Sauce from How To Cook Everytthing, Steamed Broccoli and Rice
Things that are true about this meal: it is really a lot of work to bread all of the cutlets in cornmeal and then fry them only to top them with a “lime” sauce. I think this would taste much better sans-cornmeal. Because of the whole cornmeal breading-thing, I ended up skipping the rice because it was just…a lot.
Did I mention that the cornmeal was confusing here?
Thursday – Risotto with chicken, mushrooms and asparagus
AKA MARCUS’ FAVORITE DINNER OF ALL TIME.
This was supposed to be a belated Sunday night Valentine’s dinner, but then the aftermath of Galentine’s Day weekend struck and I needed a little more greenery. Luckily, Marcus agreed to a dinner-switch and we ended up feasting on this to celebrate the end of our week!
