Finally! So cold and what did we do? Grill and make potato salad.
Monday-steak with pan fried morels (Anthony), steamed artichoke and I taste tested the potato salad I made for Tuesday night
Tuesday-Brats on the grill (Hy-Vee has great ones they make themselves), potato salad, broccoli with s+p, butter and shallots
Wednesday-Cheese ravioli with marinara and sweet sausage meatballs (NR) (take a package of Johnsonville Italian sausage, remove the casing and roll into mini-meatballs), awful, no good, very bad salad, strawberries
This week I ran out of my main staples: olive oil, balsamic vinegar and kosher salt. I guess all that non cooking is catching up. I've got one more new recipe I may make this weekend, not sure cause we've got a busy one coming up. Plus, I picked some rhubarb up at the farm so I need to do something with that.
Seems like a cheater move, but I bought white chocolate chips and made the recipe for chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips on the back of the bag. They are very good, though I messed up the sugar amount. My brain is hardwired to make Nestle chocolate chip cookies and it is essentially the same recipe with a few modifications. They are sweet! Also, its hard to tell when chocolate cookies are ready, you can't see the edge browning as well as you can with other cookies.
