and one more thing...
recipes i have made this week: tortilla casserole (VERY kid friendly) and chicken with bacon, rosemary and lemon juice (i already have a couple improvements to try).
i was going to try and make creamed spinach from scratch a la julia to go with the chicken. but i got home, read the recipe, saw how much work it was and decided to just go with the usual saute with garlic, kosher salt and pepper with a little balsamic thrown in at the end. yummers.
i'm trying a white bean and sausage soup with olive cornbread on the side for superbowl sunday.
total new recipe count for the week (as of sunday): 4.
